Some of the monuments you are going to visit: 

The temple of Zeus

In the temple of Zeus at Olympia, Phidias, the great sculptor of ancient Athens created a colossal statue of the God out of gold and ivory. The statue was of such splendour that it was immediately recognized as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Pausanias saw the statue and says: "The god sits on a throne, and he is made of gold and ivory. On his head lies a garland which is a copy of olive shoots. In his right hand, he carries a Victory, which, like the statue, is of ivory and gold; she wears a ribbon and – on her head – a garland."

Reviews

  • We just returned from an excellent tour, in which my 15 year old twins had a great time!We had a very good experience with Greeking.me and would definitely recommend them. Our guides were like having a friend showing you the secrets of the city but with lots of info that a typical guide would not know.
