This is a very historic place. The village around this place was ancient. We did not realize that we're so close to everything. Just stopped here for a night. That evening we went to new Corinth for dinner. Looking for a restaurant was like looking for a needle in a haystack. Ended up having some yiros and lamb chops and... More

Impressive site together with Acrocorinth site. Fewer tourists. Good photo taking spots covering the fort at the hill top and the temple column remains in the valley floor

Beautifully maintained archeological site. The Temple of Apollo is cool as is the Fountain of Peirene. It was also great to stand on the same platform that St Paul the Apostle addressed the Corinthians.

Nice site of ancient ruins of the city of Corinth. Easy to walk through and see, although there is not a lot of explanation at the site. We had a guide, which greatly helped us to understand the site.

Ancient Corinth (this means specifically the large archeological site, not the environs of modern Corinth) is easily reachable, accessible, and a must visit in the Peloponnese. An easy drive over the famous Corinth Canal, this history-packed ancient site is a treasure trove for any history buff or religious studies tourist. Not at all crowded, it's a good place to have...

Easily accessible site. The ruins were stunning, but would have benefitted from more signage and information. I would recommend taking a guide book for the site to get the most out a visit.

Less than an hour from Nafplion, ancient Corinth is worth a visit. The archaeological site has a lot to show and the museum a lot of wonderful artifacts. All you need to do is to read some of its history before visiting to understand what great history this site had.

Nice drive from Athens city, well worth the visit. Small museum near the ruins site as well, although part was closed for renovation. Good to have a guide to get more perspective. This site doesn't involve to much of strenuous climbing like Delphi or Sounion so is a good choice for some. The Acro Corinth site requires a steeper climb... More

We took a tour through key tours/viator that came to Ancient Corinth and then visited a winery. The tour was excellent, but the ruins were really the highlight for me. Its a fairly large site, and I would have loved more time to explore, but I thoroughly enjoyed visiting ancient Corinth and hearing about the history of the city.

We went to Corinth specifically to see these ruins and we were not disappointed. They are in very good condition. Walking through these ruins, it was easy to imagine what life would have been like when Paul was preaching to the Corinthians. It is an easy walk through this ancient village in a quiet, rural setting. It was a profound... More
