Today is the final honeymoon post. We booked another private taxi tour in Olympia because we wanted to beat the bus crowds. I booked it through Katakolon Taxi Tours.
The first stop was the archaeological site of the first Olympics. The photo above is the Philippeion, built by Phillip and Alexander the Great.
The footprints of a statue that used to be here.
Sam took this photo with his phone. This is the entrance to the stadium area.

After we finished touring the historical site, we went to Olympia Land winery. Compared to all the wines we had in Santorini, we just weren't that impressed with this winery.
Our next stop was Kremasti Monastery. Some locals believed they saw the image of the Virgin Mary on the side of the mountain, so the monastery was built in that spot.
The inside was extremely ornate! I was wearing a sleevless top and shorts and I had to cover my arms with a shawl and put a skirt/wrap around my shorts in order to go inside the monastery.
The view from the mountain of the monastery was so beautiful!
Our last stop was St Andrew beach, where we got a snack and some drinks.
That's the end of the honeymoon posts!
