... was more to see but the site closes at six and the guards were blowing annoying whistles and hustling us out. We then walked through the town, did a bit of shopping and had dinner at a local taverna. We had gyros with many starters - and then returned to our hotel at 9:30 to pack up to leave the next morning for Delphi. Whew - a day not to be forgotten! (I am finishing this at 10 pm in Athens.

We finally made it here just not sure if we where all in one piece so to relax us all down we headed out to lunch, then after lunch a little look in the shops told us Olympia.  Was more expensive than Athens. We then headed to the archaeological museum of Olympia that was really interesting - pity the Christians came along and damaged or destroyed the large statues.

This contained no seats, but rather hills on which the 45,000 people sat on the ground to watch the foot races. The entrance to the stadium was a 20 to 30m tunnel, some of which is still standing.

Although most of the site has been exposed, showing the extents and apparent grandeur of the site, ...
