The Katakolon train, familiar to the international visitors that arrive in the area by cruise boats, offers a unique way to visit ancient Olympia. Several daily 45-minute trips from Katakolo to Olympia are scheduled every day. The train station is located in the center of Olympia, only five minutes away from the museum and the archaeological site.
