Corinth was one of the most important city-states in Peloponnese and the richest in ancient Greece. A visit to the remains of the ancient Corinth allows visitors to see the glory and power of the ancient past, but also the transition to a new chapter towards Christianity.
The almost an hour drive to ancient Corinth offers a beautiful view of the sea, small but significant islands and Greek nature. Our drivers and tour guides will make sure that you are comfortable while sharing the myths bounded with the area around you.Before our visit to the site, we will make a stop to the Corinth Canal, which divides Peloponnese from the mainland of Greece. The attempts of the opening go back in the ancient times but it was realized in 1893, proving that Greece was a modern country, capable to sustain projects like this.
After our short stop we will visit the archaeological site and the museum of ancient Corinth, which stands at the shadow of Acrocorinth. Acrocorinth is the acropolis of ancient Corinth, a monolithic rock that stands 575 meters over the ancient city of Corinth. Acrocorinth was a natural fortitude protected many generations in many occasions from the ancient times, to Middle Ages when the Venetians concurred it, to the Greek revolution in 1821. Before wander around ancient Corinth, the small but significant museum will give a taste of the city’s advanced civilization. The art, such as mosaics as long as ritual and everyday items show a very refined culture for you to discover. Then the art will come alive as you will walk among great architectural structures such as the temple of Apollo, and Bema, the place where St. Paul stood and talked to the people about the new religion. Leave it to us to show you the coexistence of two worlds so different like the ancient and the Christian. Before heading back to Athens, you will enjoy your meal at a local traditional restaurant.
