Corinth - In a word - GO ! If you are interested in history and the Bible - GO if you ever can. Experience the "stage" the Paul preached from, the paths he walked and dream of his presence. While much is in ruins clearly enough remains to provide a vision of the area and the experience of being were... More

about an hour's drive from Athens, the ruins of Ancient Corinth remind us of the wealth of this town in the ancient and christian times. The site is not very big and it hosts a small museum. This is where Paul spoke to the Corinthians.

As far as ancient ruin sites go this one is small and not spectacular. It is convenient to Athens and the place where Paul was tried. For this it is worth a visit, or if you like ruins in small doses.

Our tour bus first stopped at the Corinth Canal and we watched from the bridge as a boat slowly made its way through the canal. That in itself was worthwhile, especially since I was able to get a coffee frappe at the convenient tourist stop shop next to the bridge. The Corinthian ruins were larger and more complete than what... More

If you are visiting Athens you should take the time to visit the ancient ruins of Corinth. Walk where Paul spoke to the Corinthians. Two hours for visiting the site, including the museum should be sufficient.

I strongly recommend you to buy a tour to Corinth, it is a half day tour and not very tiresome. You will see first Corinth channel (very narrow, indeed!) and then visit Corinth museum and explore remnants of temples and archaeological sites where it is allowed. Remember to visit a very nice orthodox church dedicated to St. Paul, whose life... More

6500 BC is truly Ancient, but historians believe this area was occupied during the Neolithic period and almost continually occupied since then. It's an incredibly significant area for both its archaeological and Biblical importance. Study a map ahead of time if you're driving. The site consists of 3 main areas; the acropolis on the hill (Acrocorinth), the village itself on... More

We rented a limo from Athens and took a tour of corinth canal, Corinth, Mycenae and Nafplio. It was great. Corinth ruins were especially awe inspiring. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to take a guided tour. This is one place guided tour is worth.

Ancient corinth is a little dull unless you're very enthusiastic on the history behind it. And it was really hot as there aren't many trees around it. Make sure you take a hat

[Visited in Dec. 2013, but TripAdvisor won't allow more than 12 months, so it's shown as May 2012.] There's a lot of history for Corinth, and one should read before visiting the site. I has read about in my school days, so it was a definite place to visit. Glad we came in the taxi as he took us straight... More
