I was recently, on September 19th or 20th, in Greece on a cruise and visited Olympia. Because I added the Archiological Museum to the day I was unable to purchase anything from the shops located by the ship as I needed to return to the ship. Is there a way to find certain items on the intenet or by writing to the shops. I am looking for women's Olympia t-shirts among other items.
Can you help me with this?

Hi there, I will be staying on Zakynthos for a week and want to plan a short trip to Olympia. First I need to get a ferry from Zante to Killini on Peloponnese... and then….. can anybody advise how to get there from port Killini? Do I need to stay a nite at Olympia? Are there any sights or off beaten places to see?
Loads of thanks!
Hi All! I'm also doing a cruise, and unfortunately, we're only in Katakolon from noon - 7. In researching, I found a train that runs to Olympia.
Has anyone taken this? Since the last train leaves Olympia at 3:42pm, we'll only have 2 hours there. Is this enough time?
I was wondering if I could get directions to get to Olympia from the Katakolon port. I will be renting a car from the port.
Also, is it an easy drive?
Thanks in advance.

Could someone tell me whats the fastest way to get from Olympia to Meteora?

Thank you so much!
Is it possible to reach Olympia from the port of Katakolon without taking a cruiseline excursion? Are there buses around the port area? Any details would be helpful. Thanks.
Where is inexpensive but clean/safe to stay in Olympia and Kalamata?
We will be sailing from Bari, Italy to Patras, Greece, and will have a few days to explore enroute to Athens. We'd like to know how you'd recommend travelling around the Peloponnese area, as if we can, we'd love to see Olympia, Monemvasia and Mycenae.. The Diakofto-Kalavryta railway sounds fantastic, too, if we take the train across. Suggestions?
