What to buy in Olympia?
Avoid the tourist traps selling cheap t-shirts when shopping in Olympia and head straight for the authentic art and craft shops centred on the main street. Here you will find a range of handcrafted products ranging from jewellery and textiles to honey and olive oil. Olympia is also a great place to buy reproductions of some of the ancient Greek artefacts you may have seen throughout your Greek Islands holiday. Many are created by locals and come with certificates of authenticity, so while you may not be able to take an original piece of ancient Greece home with you, these faithful reproductions make a lasting reminder of Greece’s rich history.
