Katakolon is pretty much a one-horse town with a big pier. We highly recommend you visit Olympia on a tour with an experienced tour guide. You can get there on your own (katakolon taxi tour will be cost about $50 roundtrip), but will miss the commentary about what you are seeing, which really adds to a visit of the site. Most tours last a half day, including a little time to poke around the town of Olympia (where there’s also a small museum dedicated to the modern Olympics). You return to Katakolon with plenty of time to enjoy lunch at a cafe and poke around the shops there.
Katakolon to ancient Olympia, where ancient Greeks came to celebrate the games. At the ruins of the sanctuary at Olympia, visitors can see the temples of Zeus and Hera, the floor of the original stadium and the Council House where athletes took the Olympic oath. A museum has a unique collection of Greek sculpture, ancient pieces of armor and bronze figurines found during the excavations.
