‘The realities of the Olympic Games’

We are all used to the idea of the links between the ancient and modern Olympics. But what were the ancient Olympics really like? How did you get there, where did you stay and what was the experience on the ground for competitors and spectators? What might you see, hear, and think about? What kind of impressions of ancient Greece, and of the ancient Greeks, did you come away with? And as a result, just what real links are there between the ancient and modern Olympics after all?
