Driver Directions
From Athens : There are two routes from Athens. The easy is via Patras (330 km). Choose the direction to Patras, then Pyrgos and Ancient Olympia. The harder but most picturesque is via Vytina (303 km). You will drive towards Tripolis after Corinth, but after the tunnel you will find the junction to Ancient Olympia, through the mountains of Arkadia.

Olympia is located about 300 km from Athens and whichever route you choose to take, it will be an unforgettable journey. You travel across Peloponnese, through forested mountains, olive groves, vineyards and orchards. We recommend you stop at one of the beautiful, traditional villages to taste the local delicacies. If you choose the seaside route, you will pass through lovely villages built by the ocean. You should not miss the opportunity to the see the majestic sandy beaches and the deep blue waters of the Corinthiakos and Patraikos gulfs.

From Katakolon port: Katakolon situated 35 km from Ancient Olympia town, aproximately 25 minutes drive.
