Travel Blogs from Olympia
Left Navplion and headed west towards the Ionian Sea, and the town of Olympia. Temperature reached low 30's and was extremely humid. On the way we visited pottery. Viewed the Olympia museum and then the Sanctuary of Olympia. After 33 years I could not remember it being so big. I believe that their were some areas that are new archeological …

It was a great tour lasting almost four hours.
Then, a pleasant drive back to the ship, where we boarded for an afternoon of relaxing while on our way to Nauplion, our destination for tomorrow's tour.
As our days begin to dwindle, we relish the opportunities to sit by the pool, or hang out at the Lido deck bar, and chat the afternoon away while watching the Greek seaside sail by.
... hour. By the end of the tour of the museum, he only really had maybe 3 people from our entire bus still following him. Brittany and I mostly just stood around all day and just looked at each other in complete frustration.
The bathrooms in Olympia were probably my worst bathroom experience ever, not just restricting it to just Europe. We waited in line and once my turn came, I went in to the dirtiest room of my life. The ...

A stop at 5pm for afternoon tea at Clovine Beach on the coast of the Ionian Sea, on through the town of Nafpaktos (Lepanto) and up an incredible zig zag road to Delphi for dinner and overnight stay at HotelAmalia - this one deserves it's 5 star status. Superb on all fronts, views and food particularly.

Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Europa Hotel Olympia
Great place for tourists
I came here on a tour of Olympia. the beds were comfortable, the garden and pool were beatiful, and the food was great. I would come here on my next trip to Greece.
Really a good choice
It is located on a hill, 3 minutes by car from Olympia village. Friendly and helpful staff. The rooms were clean and spacious. Dinner at the restaurant was convenient and tasty. A good choice and a great value. It is definively a four star hotel.
An excellent hotel...
This hotel would be hard to fault. The service and rooms were clearly four star. Rooms were large, fresh and clean with the area divided into a sleeping and sitting area, The bathroom was excellent and adequate bathroom needs were supplied, Restaurant facilities were first rate. The only slightly negative aspect of this hotel was the food, which was fairly ordinary by international standards.
A nice place to relax after a day at the ruins
We stayed one night in connection with a visit to Olympia ruins and museum. Our room was clean, fairly recently remodeled with a pool view. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The pool is nice and great after a day of fighting off the tourists in the August sun. Dinner at the garden restaurant was convenient and tasty. A good choice and a great value.
We were here for a night in July. The hotel is attractive, high above the town, with nice views. Rooms are spacious. There is a good sized pool, outside dining, and a large breakfast room.
We came in at night and left in the morning. If we were doing it again, we'd spend a second night and leave some time to relax around the pool.
This is a fantastic hotel. The rooms are gorgeous and modern, the staff are incredibly helpful and friendly and the pool area is superb with a very convenient pool bar, with waiting staff who cannot do enough to help you!
Perfect Pelopenese Hotel
The Europa in Olympia is absolutely gorgeous. The views from the balconies overlook the beautiful pool and the rolling hills of the Pelopenese. The hotel is up a quiet little hill not far from Ancient Olympia and is very quiet and serene. The buffet breakfast was fantastic. Rooms were a great size with a beautiful bathroom. Pricing is great for what you get. Would definitely stay here again.
Myself and my girlfriend have stayed in this hotel for 1 night in January 2005. We are astonished by the professionalism and standard of what this hotel has offered us.
Very Pleasant Place
This family run US style hotel has good sized rooms and baths, a big breakfast in is in a quiet location away from the throngs. Also internet access is available. Worth the money.
The owners of this hotel have been in the business for many years. There is no room for anything other than care, good management, and quiet luxury, high up on the hill above Olympia away from traffic noise. A dream stay (we've been there twice) Would recommend this hotel moist highly.
