We did the Hop on Hop Off bus and went to the town about 8 miles from the port. It’s a nice town to visit and walk around. We discovered a true little gem. There is an excellent archeological museum that is worth visiting. It was about 5 euros for seniors and we also visited the Greek Orthodox Church in town. Read Less

In planning, I was pretty sure we would be to pooped for a 4th tour -- and I could not have been more right. I considered an excursion to the beach...but was put off by the price (onboard $45 each and Viator about $30 ea if I remember correctly). So, my daughter and I took our chances. We went off the ship and immediately found a taxi that agreed to take us to a close-by beach (that was not the very close one that was reportedly very dirty), for 30 Euro round trip (total). The driver waited for us for 1 1/2 hours and took us back. The beach was absolutely beautiful and a welcome respite. On the way back, we had him drop us off a bit shy of the port so we could do a little shopping. So glad I did not book anything! Read Less

Interesting area & guide was good. Lots of walking/standing which is harder than just walking.

Got a bus near dock to site of Olympic Village for 8 euros return. 45 minute ride through pretty hills and olive groves. Entrance to sit 12 euros. Ruin site large and really impressive. Museum was small but had a lot of artifacts including the famous Hermes and Dionysus sculpture and a Nike winged victory. Only had 2 hours to visit which was not enough - needed 3 hours. Nothing to see in Katakolo. Read Less

We took a taxi from the port to Olympia (€80). There’s not really much to see here but it was a relaxing end to the trip as you can get a beer or gelato and sit at the port.

Better than we anticipated. Three streets in town, full of stores and restaurants. Headed to a local favorite, Jimmy's Tavern. A lot of the crew was there.

we didn't;t take the coach but found a wonderful narrow gauge train that took us to Olympia and back with better views and no other passengers - just at the end of the Main Street

We were one of the first off the ship. There were taxis waiting outside and a lady who was organising where everyone wanted to go. We went to Agios Andreas beach which was a 30 euro round trip by taxi and took about 10 mins. Umbrellas and sun loungers were free on the beach but you had to buy something to drink from the hotel bar. A bottle of water was only 1 euro though. It's a little rocky but the kids enjoyed it. We got there early so there was no-one there. Read Less
