... were older I would say with a lot families with young children as well. There were some people in their 20s, but many of them were there on a honeymoon or there with their families. We found that we just couldn't tolerate being around the younger people on the ship because they were just so obnoxious and drunk 24/7. Being that alcohol gives me a hangover really easily and us having so much planned (and me being sick the last few days), we didn't really partake ...

... and bars cater for every dietary need. Even though there are nearly 4000 passengers on board, queues are short and tables are always available. The ship docked around 11.00, and we were on the coach and heading to the Ancient City of Olympia. Soon we were retracing the trail of ancient Olympians through the archaeological remains of Olympia. Ancient Olympia was the town that gave rise to and hosted the Olympic Games in the classical times, ...

A major religious, cultural, and sporting centre, Olympia (named after Mt. Olympus, the highest mountain in mainland Greece and home of the gods) flourished from the 10th century BC to 426 AD, the year in which the emperor Theodosius II closed all the ancient sanctuaries. The Atlis, the sacred grove at Olympia, was devoted mainly to Zeus. The games, which were held in the area already in prehistoric times, were reorganized in the 8th century BC by Iphitos, king of ...

After the tour we had baklava at a local eatery (amazing!!!) and then they took us to a restaurant where we were treated to a typical Greek lunch which included more ouzo!! It was very tasty.

... and on a couple of occasions their behaviour sparked a sharp rebuke from our Guide as it was interrupting her presentation (we were again using the receivers and ear buds so that we could all hear the narration). I’m not sure what she said to them, but it had the desired effect!

The formal part of the tour ended at the arched entrance to the Olympic field. Olympia is of course the site of the first Olympic Games which were (and still are) held ...

    An Affordable Option in Ancient Olympia

    The Good:
    The family that run the place are very welcoming, informative, and helpful. The hotel is located right at the beginning of the main street running through the town of Ancient Olympia, so it's in a very convenient spot: restaurants and shops are just a hop and a skip away, and the archaeological site/museum are within easy walking distance. The wifi worked well in our room and there was English-language CNN on the TV.

    It seemed to be that the hotel could benefit from a few updates. It appears as though the rooms and furnishings have been around for some time and are a bit dated at this point. Also, we requested a double bed but were given a room with two beds, which seemed to be the only option (though not 100% sure of that).
