Large and very interesting site with useful information boards and a small informative visitor centre. Lots to see if you have enough time, it would take 2 - 3 hours to see most of what is available.

The modern games will occur again in 2020. No tough qualifiers and they are open to women, too, and no one runs naked anymore. The thrill would be in running barefoot on the same fields where runners competed in the mid-sixth century BCE. The field...More

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.

Really interesting site. The temple of Zeus is great and so is the running track. The museum is also very helpful, and the coin display demonstrating the geography of the place of origin for the coin is a particular highlight.

The ruins of the Temple of Zeus are lovely, although not much in comparison to some of the other sites around Greece. However, the museum was really interesting with many unusual pieces. Definitely worth it.

After reading many tripadvisor reviews, we decided to visit Ancient Nemea. Our tour guide was quite intrigued that we had asked to go here as it, apparently, is a bit off the beaten tourist track. We are SO glad we visited. When we arrived, we...More

Nemea is not far from Mycenae but much less visited. Although a different type of site it is still very worth while seeing being set in a green valley in an attractive situation. The site itself is well maintained and includes an excellent and informative...More
