After exploring the site of Ancient Olympia, we popped in to the museum on our way out. Though this site is several hours from Athens, the museum is worth the drive all on its own. A few thousand years as a major devotional centre have led to some amazing archaeological finds, from the Classical and Roman periods. People from all over the Greek world founded shrines, endowed monuments and left thousands of votive offerings. These are just some highlights!
Post museum – on the road again!
