There is no better place than Ancient Olympia to get acquainted with the work of archaeologists. Visit the archaeological site with a licensed tour guide experienced in very young kids in a private tour and explore the birthplace of the Ancient Olympic Games in the family friendliest way.

Continue with …digging! An educational hands-on archaeological experience, where all the family members have the chance to become real archaeologists and excavate a house of the 5th century B.C., the Ancient Gymnasium and an impressive Roman bath with mosaics! 

You will start your journey through time with a short conversation with the archaeologist about archaeology, human past and the excavation practice. Then, you will take your trowel, start digging and learn how to uncover and record the artefacts.
