Elis Region

Trip Planner Europe  /  Greece  /  West Greece  /  Elis Region
Nestled against the Ionian Sea, the Elis region remains best known for containing the ancient site of the original Olympic Games. This World Heritage-listed site remains the region's biggest tourist attraction, though Elis also contains sandy beaches, pine forests, and lively towns steeped in history and culture. Scattered across the mountainous region, you'll also discover Byzantine monasteries, age-old fortifications, and tiny villages that preserve their traditional way of life. Pyrogos, the region's capital and biggest city, serves as a busy tourist center and is the starting point for guided day trips to the surrounding archaeological sites. Elis Region is in West Greece. Customize your holiday with our Greece vacation planner to create an adventure that suits you.
