This is a 4 hour tour that is ideal for the morning.

Driving along the coast towards Corinth, we pass by Salamina island and I tell you about the famous naval battle between the Greeks and the Persians.

Ancient Corinth is about an hour’s drive from Athens. The site includes a well preserved ancient town, with a significant temple and the market around it. The Temple of Apollo is one of the oldest in Greece (585 B.C.).

Corinth was a very rich and powerful city, which is why St. Paul chose to address the Corinthians. We also get to see the Bema where St. Paul preached and  finally, the Archaeological Museum of Corinth.

Ancient Corinth was one of the largest and most important cities in Greece, with population of 90.000 in 400 B.C.

Last but not least, we visit the Acrocorinth where significant ruins of the imposing fortress combine clues of  Byzantines, Franks and Venetians presence in the area.

On the way back we stop at the Corinth Canal, one of the biggest man made canals in the world. Worth saving some space on your camera for this shot.
