With that in mind, two summers ago I visited the site of original Olympics. Olympia, a sanctuary of ancient Greece in Elis, is known for having been the site of the Olympic Games in classical times, the most famous games in history. The Olympic Games were held every four years throughout Classical Antiquity, from the 8th century BC to the 4th century AD. The first Olympic Games were in honor of Zeus.
I realize in retrospect touring a very dirty, ancient site was probably not the best idea in Rainbow Sandals was not my best idea but they are seriously the most comfortable shoes I own. I will swear, up, down, and side ways.
I learned a tremendous amount while visiting the site it amazing amazing to learn there are remnants dating back to the 10th century BC – when we find things in America we are impressed when things are three or four hundred years old. I did not even include photos of the field, a big expanse of grass that you can find anywhere. Still, the Archaeological Site of Olympia was a site to be seen. Bucket list item crossed off!
