INTERNATIONAL DELEGATIONS AND HELLENIC DELEGATIONS (excluding delegations from Athens)

1. Important information regarding the air tickets:

Athens and the “Eleutherios Venizelos” Athens International Airport are 5 and a half-hour drive away from Ancient Olympia. It is highly recommended to plan your departure from Athens on the 14th after 3:00 p.m. If, due to the flight program of the airlines this is not possible, the delegations are strongly advised to consider the possibility of departing Athens a day later, on the 15th April. In a case such as this, the delegation will pay an extra night for their extra accommodation in Athens. The organizers will provide any help needed.

 

However, should a delegation choose to depart on the 14th April earlier than 15:00 it is highly recommended to contact Mr. Vasilis Papalyberis, Head of the Organizing Committee (vp@olympiayouthsymposium.com) BEFORE booking the air tickets! Should a delegation ignore the above instruction, the Organizers will have no responsibility regarding the transportation of the delegation to Athens.
