This 5.5-hour Grecian outing not only gives you the chance to discover the ancient site of the Olympic Games and explore the Archaeological Museum's treasures, but you'll also savor authentic Greek food and wine at Magna Grecia family farm. You'll first comb the crumbling ruins of Olympia, the ancient site where the original Olympic Games were held back in 776 BCE. See what remains of the athletic training facilities, the stadium where contests occurred, and temples dedicated to Greek gods. Then step inside the Archaeological Museum to peruse themed exhibits displaying an impressive collection of bronzes, terracottas, sculptures and other artifacts spanning some 3,500 years back. When it's time for lunch there's no better place to enjoy an authentic taste of Greece than at Magna Grecia, a four-generation family-owned farm. Walk the grounds with a local guide, learning how they grow olives and grapes for tasty olive oil and fine wine. Then sit down to a Greek-style meal featuring bruschetta tirocafteri, sausages, fresh seasonal vegetables, homemade tzatziki, black Kalamata olives, feta cheese, and sweet baklava. Raise your glass of wine, toasting to the traditional Greek music and Sirtaki folk dances swirling around in the background.
