The museum of the Games was excellent as it put the site in context and gave one an overlay of the people involved at the site and what the games would have been like for them.
Other archeological sites would do well to follow this example in sharing the anthropological view or sociology view as well as just the building and findings aspects from the digs.
The atmosphere of the little town is a little touristy, but not too much so. I felt very relaxed and comfortable walking around and exploring the streets and shops.
Kotsanas Museum of Ancient Greek Technology: The staff there is so friendly and loves showing and explaining everything. On the main street as you walk to the Sanctuary.
The book written by Mr. Kotsanas is so cool. The shop of Dimitris the Painter Dimitris Kirkilessis , also on the main street. His work is amazing, and he was so fascinating to talk with.
A very kind, thoughtful, knowledgeable and gifted artist. Best place to buy local, authentically crafted work.
Of course, the Sanctuary of Olympia is the main reason to be there. Such a pleasant and peaceful place. Plan to spend a whole day so that you can enjoy the beautiful late afternoon golden light.
Thinking of all the ancient Greeks and Romans who have been in the same place as me. Using my imagination to think and feel what it must have been like back in the day.
Standing in the coliseum feeling the vibes of all those ancient athletes. Having a glass of the local wine at the end of the day and saluting all those who went before me!
Loved visiting the site and the museum is a must. The surrounding town is full of tourist shops, but the owners were all nice and very appreciative of our business.
We visited in April before peak season. Make sure you check the times of the ancient site and the museum are open. We assumed it would be 5: It seems most of the sites close at 3: If you stay overnight, a great place for dinner is the Agean restaurant in ancient Olympia!
Olympia is one of my favorite places in Greece. Yes it is overrun with tourists but if you time your visit to the town and site to early morning or after 4 pm it can be very pleasant.
I liked being able to walk in the stadium where the athletes raced. Really great place to stay if you want to visit the archaeological site if Olympia.
The hotel is situated right in the city centre and parking is available for free. The archaeological site and the museum is within 15 min walk.
It is family owned hotel and the owner is an amazing and very helpful man. Ask him for advice if you need to know something and try the restaurant that he recommends.
The hotel is very well located near the archeological site. It was also extremely clean and we had anything we wanted olive oil, salt n pepper, pots etc.
Keep in mind that there is no reception so you have to tell when you are planing to check in. Also the balcony was pretty big and the air conditions were also new.
The lady was very thoughtful to prepare chocolate milk for my kids and it tasted really good. The rooms and toilet were clean. We were given two heaters to keep warm.
Very good and warm service. At this time the Skiloudians, allies of the Pistans, built the Temple of Hera.
The Treasuries and the Pelopion were built during the course of the 6th century BC. The secular structures and athletic arenas were also under construction during this period including the Bouleuterion.
The first stadium was constructed around BC, it consisted of just a simple track. The stadium was remodelled around BC with sloping sides for spectators and shifted slightly to the east.
Over the course of the 6th century BC a range of sports were added to the Olympic festival. The classical period , between the 5th and 4th centuries BC, was the golden age of the site at Olympia.
A wide range of new religious and secular buildings and structures were constructed. The Temple of Zeus was built in the middle of the 5th century BC.
Its size, scale and ornamentation was beyond anything previously constructed on the site. Further sporting facilities, including the final iteration of the stadium, and the hippodrome for chariot-racing were constructed.
The Prytaneion was built at the northwest side of the site in BC. In the late classical period, further structures were added to the site.
The Metroon was constructed near the Treasuries c. The erection of the Echo Stoa , around BC, separated off the sanctuary from the area of the games and stadium.
The South Stoa was built at the southern edge of the sanctuary at approximately the same time. The late 4th century BC saw the erection of the Philippeion.
Around BC the largest building on the site, the Leonidaion , was constructed to house important visitors. Due to the increasing importance of the games, further athletic buildings were constructed including the Palaestra 3rd century BC , Gymnasion 2nd century BC and bath houses c.
Finally, in BC, a vaulted archway was erected linking the entrance of the stadium to the sanctuary. During the Roman period, the games were opened up to all citizens of the Roman Empire.
A programme of new buildings and extensive repairs, including to the Temple of Zeus, took place. In AD, the Nympheum or Exedra was built.
The 3rd century saw the site suffer heavy damage from a series of earthquakes. Invading tribes in AD led to the centre of the site being fortified with material robbed from its monuments.
Despite the destruction, the Olympic festival continued to be held at the site until the last Olympiad in AD, after which the Christian emperor Theodosius I implemented a ban.
The Temple of Zeus was apparently destroyed around AD, during the persecution of pagans in the late Roman Empire , following an edict by Theodosius II enforcing the ban on pagan festivals.
The workshop of Pheidias was turned into a Basilica and the site was inhabited by a Christian community. Repeated floods ensured that the settlement was finally abandoned altogether in the early 7th Century.
Over time the site was buried under alluvial deposits, up to 8 metres deep, long thought to be the result of river flooding. Modern research hypothesizes instead—based on the presence of mollusc and gastropod shells and foraminifera— that the site was buried by ocean waters resulting from repeated tsunamis.
The exact site was re-discovered in by the English antiquarian Richard Chandler. Since the s, the excavation and preservation of Ancient Olympia has been the responsibility of the German Archaeological Institute at Athens.
The first major excavation of Olympia began in , funded by the German government after negotiation of exclusive access by Ernst Curtius. Other archaeologists responsible for the dig were Gustav Hirschfeld , George Treu , Adolf Furtwängler who worked alongside architects , A.
Boetticher , Wilhelm Dörpfeld , and Richard Borrmann. Important finds included sculptures from the Temple of Zeus, the Nike of Paeonius , the Hermes of Praxiteles and many bronzes.
In total 14, objects were recorded. The finds were displayed in a museum on the site. Excavation was continued in a more limited way by Dörpfeld between and but a new systematic excavation was begun in on the occasion of the Summer Olympics in Berlin under Emil Kunze and Hans Schleif.
Their excavation focus was on the area to the south of the stadium, the South Stoa, bath complex and gymnasion. No doubt Skelton will be learning a thing or two from his father ahead of Olympia.
Crowley, whose daughter, Alice, has followed in his footsteps to ride in the Osborne Refrigerators Shetland Pony Grand National at Olympia, will bring his combination of jump and flat racing experience to the Grand Hall.
McCoy, who is competing at Olympia for the third year, said: With a full line-up still to be announced, spectators can expect appearances from the legendary Bob Champion, whose charity, The Bob Champion Cancer Trust, is supported by the Osborne Refrigerators Shetland Pony Grand National, in which crowds can cheer on the young jockeys and their Shetlands over a mini Grand National course.

Entrants are required to be aged and must be under five feet tall. Riders race around a track, jumping obstacles mimicking those at the Aintree Grand National, only in miniature form.
The event is the pinnacle of the Shetland Pony Grand National calendar and is set to attract hordes of spectators from the 90, attendees, who are due to visit Olympia over its seven days of competition.
Although undoubtedly a fun-filled event, there is also a real spirit of competitiveness among the riders.
Many of them are aiming to emulate past competitors, who have graduated from the Shetland Pony Grand National to become professional equestrians, including Sam Twiston-Davies and Tom Garner, who are now established names on the racing circuit.
Following in the footsteps of the Twiston-Davies brothers, Gloucestershire has another Shetland Pony Grand National competitor tipped for the top: Aspell will be returning for her second successive year at Olympia and is likely to pull out all the stops to go the distance.
Reigning Olympic champion, Charlotte Dujardin CBE, will be a central figure in the parade after she and her nine-year-old mare won individual bronze in the Dressage Grand Prix Special competition, with a personal best score of Dujardin, who also clinched team bronze in the Dressage Grand Prix on the first day of the dressage competition, will be joined by fellow bronze medallists and teammates, Carl Hester MBE, Spencer Wilton and Emile Faurie.
Not only helping the team to post the lowest score in world championship history, Ros Canter held her own to take individual gold, making it a double sweep for the record-breaking Brits.
