At a Glance

Every four years in Ancient Greece, great athletes would travel for days or weeks to reach the sanctuary at Olympia. There each athlete would compete to bring honor to his city-state at the expense of its rivals and to honor the gods who watched from atop nearby Mount Olympus. With your grandchild, discover the great Olympic traditions that began in Greece: the Olympic Truce, the marathon, the lighting of the flame. Plus sail to Greek islands, explore ancient temples and more. Faster, higher, stronger!

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Learn about the Olympics both ancient and modern at Olympia and the modern stadiums of Athens.
  • Board sailboats for a four-day voyage to islands, bays and hidden temples, plus race between islands in a fun regatta.
  • Take a hike on Mount Olympus, home to the twelve Olympian gods of Greek mythology.
