Again we arranged a taki tour to take us to the Olympic village. The taxi ride was sub par, but the sites were neat. Need far more time to see the ruins of the Olympic village and a tour guide would be advised, as many of the ruins are not labeled or explained. After the Olympic area our driver took us to an excellent homely farm - one of the highlights of our trip. Garbage disposal and government services are really lacking in this area of Greece and apparent nearly everywhere with mounds of garbage and areas of litter. Smokers are common and as in other countries (except Croatia and Slovenia), smokers just litter their cigarette butts everywhere. Read Less

Our shipped docked in Katakolon, a relatively small fishing town. There is a great shopping area and many great restaurants to try. We had a great traditional Greek breakfast if you can call it that. We then took our chances with one of the bus tours to Athens. I will say be careful in choosing these as we learned that many are not licensed to drive or park their buses in Olympia. With that said, we still enjoyed a cheap but comfortable bus ride to Olympia and also got a free walking tour outside of the ruins that was actually very informative. We then had time to explore the archaeological site and museums with time to shop and have meal before taking the bus back to Katakolon. Read Less

We took the little train around town and stayed on the beach. We didn't go to olympia since there just wasn't much time. We enjoyed the afternoon with drinks on the beach and relaxing- the weather was great.

Worst port I have been to, nothing to see, but ships come because they want to sell Olympia excursion.

Train still running from near disembarkation straight to site. Try to have a plan of site in advance, there are signs there but they are limited. It is a brilliant place with a bit of pre-reading. The museum is a 5 minute walk up the hill, lots of nice things from the site itself, both included in entry fee of 12 euro. Shops in area selling mostly the same things you can buy anywhere in Greece. Read Less

Beautiful little port. We love going here and it is so convenient to walk off the ship onto the waterfront and while away some time.

We went on our own, got a bus ride to the historical site, €10 round trip I believe. Very interesting, especially for camera buffs. We dined on the pier afterwards in Katakolon.
