Ancient Elis
If Olympia has one fault, it is that it can sometimes seem overwhelmed by its crowds of admirers. At the ruins of Elis, once famous for administering the games themselves, you are likely to be able to explore on your own. Elis is little known today, but its prestige in the ancient world meant that it could even tell off mighty Sparta when it broke the Olympic rules. Today the ruins are peaceful and serene.
