Combine a visit to the birthplace of the Olympic Games with a colorful folkloric show. A scenic drive leads to Olympia, steeped in myth and legend, and the site of the first Olympic games. Every four years, the Olympic flame is lit here and delivered to the next Olympic host city. Stroll the sanctuary with its temples, altars and treasuries, overlooked by trees that Zeus’s son Hercules is said to have planted to mark the boundaries. Walk or run the original course, with its marble starting blocks still intact. It’s also an opportunity to see Greek dancers performing in traditional costume.
