Ancient Corinth used to be a metropolis for the ancient standards. An ancient sin city where one of the most famous and beautiful female escorts of antiquity called lais lived there. Unfortunately this place was ravaged many times and the ruins don't represent at all the city's ancient glory.however it's still a nice place to visit. Among the ruins the... More

I had wanted to visit the old city of Corinth for its part in ancient Greek history and for the birth of christianity through Paul's decision to preach to gentiles. It was a wonderful site, I arrived by an indirect route weaving my way through the backstreets and then walking to the site and so avoiding being boxed in by... More

This extensive site of worthy of a good couple of hours exploration. The museum artifacts are amazing and the site easily accessible. The speaker's plinth where St. Paul preached is especially evocative.

I had always heard of Corinth, but didn't think it compared to Athens for ancient Greek ruins. However, ancient Corinth and its Acropolis are well worth the 60 minute drive from Athens. The site museum is not as good as the Acropolis Museum in Athens, but the ruins themselves are spectacular. Our tour had lunch in the village beside the... More

Corinth is so close to Athens that it is well worth taking a trip there. There are tours that you can take from Athens, but I went with a friend who knows the area well. In the 5th century BC Corinth was one of the three major powers in Greece and it took part in all the battles against the... More

On our second last day we took a daytrip with a reliable tour operator to Corinth which is a major city close to Athens. We visited the famous Temple of Apollo as well as the ancient theatre and Roman fountain. Our week in Athens was great but pretty packed with places to visit, and we still feel like we didn´t...

A day trip to Corinth is worth it if you are in Athens since its so close! I recommend that days before you go, take the time to read the 2 letters written to the Corinthians in the Bible just to deepen this entire experience for yourself. And at certain monuments, stop to reflect on why those words were written... More

Went to Corinth with a tour group, very interesting, especially if you read the bible. Ancient ruins, that shows just how many lived at that time. And how many modern conveniences they enjoyed, even way back then. A must see!

The ancient ruins are a wonder to see and very easy to walk around, The museum offers a wide range of statues from the town to see beautifully preserved and presented in the hall. We were lucky enough to have an excellent guide who took us to all the relevant places from a Biblical perspective . The pre ice is... More
