The ancient Olympics were held at Olympia, which is a sacred site near Elis in the western Peloponnese, Greece, with a temple complex dedicated chiefly to Zeus. Olympia is named with reference to Mount Olympus, the supposed home of the Greek gods, but it is not near Mount Olympus.

The first modern Olympics were held in Athens, Greece.
