Olympia, the museum

Day 13- yes! This is there! So do not forget to visit the museum of Olympia.

Day 13- we headed to Olympia.... of course you cannot miss this symbolic site, but after visiting the Acropolis or Epidaurus the Doric style loses its fascination.... I would suggest to start the trip visiting Olympia and ending in Athens. On top of that, the little town of Olympia is really NOT worth a stop. Dedicate 2 to 3 hrs to the site+ museum and leave. We spent the night at the Mellia Apartments, but we didn’t like it, so I won’t publish it. Acropolis, I Win, Athens, Olympia, Apartments, Greece, Country Roads, Museum, Night

Diros Caves

Day 12 - we woke up early to go there at the opening as it is a popular attraction and only 6 people can fit on each boat. We didn’t have to wait at all and you have a 30’ boat ride in this amazing underworld. The “explanation” is just in Greek, so prepare to silence basically (or bring a Greek friend! ) Perfect on a hot day, it’s cool in there.
