activity info

If you love wine, this is the best tour you can join from Katakolon. This shore excursion combines wine tasting with a visit to the birth place of the Olympic Games.

Our first visit is the archaeological site of Olympia. Marvel at the Temple of Hera, in front of which burns the Olympic Flame during modern day Olympic Games. See the Temple of Zeus, which once housed the Golden and Ivory statue of Zeus (one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World) and the original Stadium and Bouleuterion, unique in history, where once competitors swore an oath to conform to the rules.

Next stop is the world famous Archaeological Museum of Olympia where you can admire, amongst many priceless exhibits, the marble statues of the Temple of Zeus and the unique statue of Hermes, carved by the ancient Greek sculptor Praxiteles. 

We will then drive through the picturesque countryside to the Merkouri Winery, founded in 1860 by Theodore Mercouris and operated as a winery and distillery. The current owners, the Kanellopoulos family, will welcome you before seeing you off on a walking tour estate, where you will be able to experience the serenity of this oasis of rural tranquility. Points of interest include the cellar, the olive press and the traditional family museum.
