Summer School participants will stay in Ancient Olympia, next to the birthplace of the Olympic Games at the Olympic Village Hotel, which was completely renovated in 2000, and is situated a few minutes walk from the Archeological Site with the Museum, the Stadium and its ruins. Olympia Greece was the site of the ancient Olympic Games, which were celebrated every four years by the Greeks. Olympia was situated in a valley in Elis, in western Peloponnisos (Peloponnesus), through which runs the Alpheus River. It was not a town, but only a sanctuary with buildings associated with games and the worship of the gods.
