Port Excursions in Olympia and Rhodes, Greece with Disney Cruise Line


Disney Cruise Line is sailing to brand-new destinations in the Mediterranean today, including Greece. Two of the ports that Disney Cruise Line’s 9-night Mediterranean cruise will stop at are Olympia, Greece and Rhodes, Greece. Here is more information about the port excursions in Olympia and Rhodes available with Disney Cruise Line.

Ancient Olympia was the birthplace of the Olympic Games. You can still visit the original Olympic stadium and gymnasium here. Olympia also happens to be home to the Temple of Zeus. On the Historic Olympia And Archaeological Museum tour, your family can get up close to ancient artifacts and artwork, including the Hermes of Praxiteles statue. There is also the Historic Olympia And Greek Folk Dances excursion that includes a visit to a charming, hillside estate for traditional Greek food and folk dancing! If you’re looking for relaxation, guests ages 21 and up can join the Historic Olympia, Archaeological Museum And Wine Tasting Port Adventure, which gives you the chance to sip local wine and tour the Mercouri vineyards and winery, a beautiful estate established in 1864.

One of the Greek Isles you can visit on this cruise is Rhodes, full of storied architecture, a mountainous countryside and sun-kissed beaches on the Aegean Sea. One of the most popular destinations in Rhodes is the charming seaside town of Lindos, characterized by its whitewash buildings and ancient Acropolis. The Lindos Acropolis And Ceramic Factory For Families tour gives you the chance to explore the town, climb to the base of the Acropolis, and even learn the art of Greek pottery by painting your own at a local ceramic factory.

The Filerimos, Kallithea And Taste Of Rhodes Port Adventure combines the beauty, cuisine and history of Greece with a visit to Filerimos and Kallithea. Historic Filerimos is one of Rhodes’ most beautiful areas, and on its ancient road to the Acropolis, you’ll see the foundations of the temple of Zeus and Athena. After exploring a domed monastery at the top, you will head to the town of Kallithea for sightseeing and a taste of delicious local Rhodean food and wine for a dining experience you’ll never forget!
