The archeological site of Olympia is breathtaking and awe-inspiring. The entrance to the archeological site looks like a passage into space-time. It is a place to be visited, at least once in a lifetime! On this trip we will see many great things, including a museum that houses the most beautiful sculpture of antiquity. This experience is not a walk in monuments, with monologues like teaching. It's soul rebirth and real acquaintance with Greece! I think it is wonderful to fill images and emotions!
