We visited Ancient Nemea in July and it is a beautiful place with an interesting story. Don't miss the ancient stadium where the held the Nemean games. There are not many visitors and that makes it very peaceful.

The archaeologists did a very successful restoration of the columns which was very important for the monument.

I wrote a review of this in February only giving 2 stars, as it was shut and we were one of several groups peering through the chain link fencing. Re-visited in May when it was open and I can say it is excellent. It is...More

Ancient Nemea is 100% worth doing for a few reasons. It is often not overly crowded, you can visit two sites right near one another (the stadium and the primary museum/archaeological site), and you simply cannot get closer to the history than you do in...More
