Great ruins. I does not seems so crowded unlike Delphi.
It can get HOT!
In a nutshell
Go there and walk out onto the track for the 1st time, then come back and tell me how it felt...
There are a number of wonderful shops right in town not far from the Olympic park where you can fine some very unique items as well as bargains.
I bought a very authentic icon from one of the shops for a faily reasonable price with a certificate of authenticity. This was a lot less than Athens for the similar product.
If you are visiting during off season please do not that even though the shops have a regular posted time on the doors, they are seldom honor those times or schedules. Life in this town is very slow and seems to largely depend on the arrival of cruise ships at the port of Peterus (I may not be spelling it right).
When the cruise ships arrive the buses bring the shore excursion guest to Olympia and the town is all open, once the buses leave the town begin to shut down. I had this problem because I wanted to purchase some trinket on the last day and all shops were closed.
What to buy: Many little shops that sell wonderful art items as well as jewellery for a reasonable price can be found. Also one can bargain depending on the amount of visitors in town.
What to pay: About average and most definitly less than Athens.
