Katakolon, greece excursions & tours.

Katakolon is a seaside town situated on a headland overlooking the Ionian Sea. Much of its history dates from the Middle Ages and the remains of the medieval Pontikokastro/Beauvoir castle still stand on a hilltop northeast of the modern port, although the castle is mostly ruined. Today, the town is a port for cruise ships offering passengers a visit to the site of Ancient Olympia, approximately 40 minutes drive inland. Shore Excursions Group will take you to the UNESCO World Heritage site of Ancient Olympia.

Olympia In 3D

Explore Olympia, a former sanctuary and site of the first Olympic Games, where you will use augmented reality software to view the ruins as they originally stood. The games were eventually outlawed, earthquakes wreaked havoc and over time river silt covered Olympia. Fortunately, the silt preserved the site until excavations began in 1829. What has been unearthed within this UNESCO World Heritage site is extraordinary. You will see the remains of the Olympic stadium, rows of Doric columns from the gymnasium and the Temple of Hera, Olympia’s most intact structure. Still, the highlight is the Temple of Zeus, which once held the Statue of Zeus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. To enhance your understanding of Olympia, you will use an electronic tablet with augmented reality software. Simply point the tablet’s camera at the ruins, and the buildings will appear on the screen in 3D, just as they looked in ancient times.

• Visit Olympia, a UNESCO World Heritage site where the first Olympic Games were held. • See the remains of temples, a gymnasium and the Olympic stadium. • Use the provided augmented reality software to view the buildings as they once stood. • Enjoy free time to shop in a nearby village.

Katakolon Shore Excursions: Experience Ancient Olympia

When your cruise to the Greek islands stops in the port of Katakolon, you’ll of course want to see its most famous archeological site, Ancient Olympia, the site of the first Olympic Games in 776 B.C. Additionally, there are several Katakolon shore excursions that take in the charming seaside town’s raw beauty as well as the area’s vibrant wine and food culture, traditional folkways, and its more modern history.

There are so many places to go in Greece , and on Ancient Olympia shore excursions, Katakolon, Greece will serve as the starting point. You’ll board a bus for a guided tour of the famous site. You’ll see the extensive ruins that include training areas, a stadium, the Council House, where athletes took the Olympic oath, the Temples of Zeus and Hera, and the shrine of Pelops.

After marveling at the exquisite ruins of this UNESCO World Heritage Site, there are Katakolon shore excursions that offer opportunities to wander through the archeological museum for further in-depth exploration of the history and most important artifacts of the Olympia site. From your cruise to Katakolon , you will see the largest collection of bronze in the world, a large collection of significant terracotta art, savor Greek snacks, and watch traditional Greek folk dances at a nearby club.

Other Katakolon shore excursions offer an opportunity to get in some beach time at Kourouta Beach and swim in the clear, tranquil waters of the Ionian Sea. If you can’t get enough of the simple, fresh food of the Greek Islands, travel to a family-owned farmstead known for its olives groves and vineyards. Enjoy a guided tour and learn about traditional winemaking and the history and the harvesting of olives. Listen to traditional Greek music and see Greek folk dances performed as you feast on typical Greek food like homemade tzatziki, olive pie, and baklava. Go all-in for wine with a private tour at the renowned Mercouri Winery, where you’ll be treated to a tasting of their wines, crafted in the traditional manner.
