Ancient Corinth is an extensive site showcasing the remnants of a thriving Greek / Roman city. The centrepiece is the imposing temple of Apollo as well as structure around the city spring (still in use). Entrance fee of €6 includes the museum which is well worth a visit.

While visiting the Corinth Canal we went to Ancient Corinth to visit the Museum of Ancient Corinth. The museum is awesome (free admission for students) and the town is really nice for a short walk around.

So much of old Corinth is available to walk around. The signs offer good explanations and you can view the complexities of city life. Also this is the place where St Paul gave his speech.

You're obviously not traveling to Greece with Corinth being your primary focus. Chances are you're planning a trip to Athens and keep seeing Ancient Corinth pop up in your tour options.... Well, I would recommend that you book it!! There were definitely some good archaeological sites there, but the real treat of this visit is that you get to connect... More

We stopped in Corinth on our way to Nafplion and it didn't disappoint. It's a very large site with much intact and the Temple of Apollo is especially impressive. The village at the foot of the site is very quaint and worth a stop for a coffee.

This site was a good size, easy to walk around and appreciate the ancient city. The museum on site was also very interesting, with some great artifacts.

This is simply an amazing place. You leave with a greater respect for past civilizations. Our Guide was very well informed and made the past come to life. You will see the remains of houses, shops and temples that were once stunningly beautiful. (You know this because thousands of years later we're still amazed by their size and beauty). If... More

We were a group of 12, had done Athens before and so were looking to do something different. Our tour operator, Paul Kalomoiris is an American who lived in New Jersey for 25 years before heading back to his roots to live. He started out running a taxi business which is still on-going and eventually added the tour operations later.... More

We arrived at our guest hosue in Ancient Corinth and were suprised & delighted by the massive fortification on the hill. We checked in and took off in our car to find the entrance. This place was amazing, the history, the buildings that remain, including a church , a mosque and castle and a huge wall and the 360 degree... More

For a long while I've wanted to go to Ancient Corinth, because ruins transport mentally me and Ancient Corinth was such a famous - or notorious - place to visit in the past, and has strong associations with St Paul.. The problem had always been getting there; though I managed to get to Mycenae and Epidauros, Corinth seemed a middle-of-nowhere... More
