I always love touring Corinth and walking in the steps that the Apostle Paul walked in. I wish Greece was a cleaner country than it is. Corinth is so beautiful but they let stray dogs roam and it almost ruined out tour.

I loved seeing the places Paul walked and learning the reasons why he came to Corinth to begin with.

As we had visited Athens and on way to Mycenae the place didn't fascinate us. It does not add any value to us as tourist. We felt its a bit detour to go to Ancient Corinth. We suggest to give it a miss.

I must admit that I usually gain heaps of pleasure walking around ancient ruins. However, Corinth was a disappointment. I already knew a fair bit about the city, its significance in the Roman Empire and links with the early church. The layout of the ruins (with few if any intact buildings) is well set out in the brochure and sign... More

This was a good sight to visit. There were many artifacts and a lot of history to see. Definitely worth a visit, but get there before the buses to avoid any crowds.

The history is phenomenal. It is amazing to see the ruins from thousands of years ago! The detail of the buildings, columns, inscriptions, and roads is awe-inspiring. After walking through the ruins, visit the museum on site. It is not crowded, like some of the other "attractions". Leave inner Athens and visit Ancient Corinth. You will be glad you did.

Instead of (or in addition to) Athens, Ancient Corinth is a must see while in the Athens area. Quiet, no huge crowds, but amazing historical site that is a must see. Ruins dating back to before Christs' time in a beautiful setting along with a small museum made this a meaningful visit. I would go again and highly recommend it... More

This Place has a really unique mix of the best of the Greek and Roman worlds combined. The temple of Apollo is spectacular and surprisingly intact. The statues recovered are very, very nice indeed and Roman Fountain (still working) is better. A must see for all travelers in the area.

Corinth is a very interesting archeological site for amateurs like us. The Canal is amazing and a must see if you can spare time away from Athens to enrich your visit to Greece. We were fortunate to have an archeologist lead our tour and she made it come alive. A whole town has been uncovered, with a main street, shops,... More

A set of ancient monuments surrounded by a wonderful natural setting: Temple of Apollo (6th century BC) with 7 stone columns still standing, Priene Fountain, Temple of Octavia (with 3 Corinthian capitels). Very interesting museum (4 galleries with mosaics, statues and vases and a courtyard with statues). The surrounding landscape is fantastic, with Acrocorinthos Fortress on one side and hills,...
