Touring Greece was the most memorable trip of my life, so far. One incredible location after another; a history buff’s dream come true! ♥
Here we were, at the site of the Ancient Olympics; another one of those “pinch me” moments!
The Olympics began in 776 BC and, just like the modern version, were held every four years, until Emperor Theodosius I ended them in 394 AD.
As you can see by the map, it’s a sprawling site with many points of interest. [click bottom of images to stop/start slideshows]
At this point, we doubled back towards the entrance.
After spending all morning at the site, we took a tour of the Olympia Museum.
