On holiday with my wife. We were in Katakolon for the day on a cruise and decided to go to Olympia 20 Euros on the local tour guide. While in Olympia went to the 3 Museums well worth the 12 Euro per person

Unbelievable place to visit - have a tour guide explain some of the spots/ruins is great. Nice to see history being preserved so well. Highly recommended.
