Day 6 - Olympia Greece

Katakolon is perched on the west coast of Peloponnesus, Greece’s largest peninsula (population 300). We took the ship tour that started at 7:45 am. We met in the Princess lounge where we taken out quite efficiently to our bus (there were about 25 buses with 45 people plus one guide per bus). Our tour guide was an “archaeologist” with a university degree. She was trained not for “digging” but for guiding. She was excellent and knew a lot. She guided us through the ruins and then through the museum. The Olympic Village was touristy and small. We enjoyed the tour overall at ~ $59 pp.
