Ancient Corinth Ruins
Ancient Corinth Ruins
Ancient Corinth Archaeological Site
Begin your half-day tour with a private pickup from your Athens hotel or other accommodation. Hop inside your comfortable, air-conditioned luxury car or minivan and admire the scenery as you travel along the coast to Corinth.
Stop to see the Corinth Canal, the narrow, 19th-century canal that links the Saronic Gulf of the Aegean Sea with Ionian Sea. Take snaps here and then continue to the archaeological site of ancient Corinth, an important trading city in Greek and Roman times that stood at the meeting point of southern and northern Greece.
Here, explore the ruined temples, bathhouse, forum and theater, and see the bema — a stone platform where it’s believed St Paul once stood in front of gathered judges. As you stroll around the sun-baked relics, stop to soak up wonderful views over the Saronic Gulf in the distance as you will visit the Acrocorinth an ancient fortress.
Afterward, there is an optional stop either Ancient Corinth village or at the seaside town of Kehreai. There, you can taste Greek traditional dishes and enjoy a local wine before your return.
