One of the best archeological sites in Greece

You don't need to much imagination to realise how Corinth must have been in ancien times. This site is really big, a lot to see and there is a nice museum

After being in Athens and watching some other more important ruins this one remains just a simple "one more ruin" memory. If you have limited time to visit Greece and you want to see lots of things I would concentrate on Athens and on the Corinth Canal from this region rather than coming up to this place.

The site is easy to find and shaded parking is available. The main site is compact which makes it easy to visit even if you do not have a long time or if you have kids with short attention spans. The Temple of Apollo is one of those iconic landmarks. Most of the site we can see are the Roman... More

Everyone knows the Parthenon in Athens, but it's so interesting to see other temples dedicated to other gods. Corinth is the home of the temple of Apollo. The museum is also filled with ancient pottery, prehistoric tools and figurines, statues and floor mosaics. Truly amazing.

This was my second time to Acro Corinth. What struck me is its physicality, the way it imposes more on the landscape than the Athenian Acropolis. The Rock of the Acropolis juts out of the landscape as if it were pushed up. The views are stunning. Here St Paul's preached. Here Athens and Sparta vied for a powerful ally. Practical... More

It was interesting to examine this archaeological site, which doesn't occupy a big area, so it is possible to visit it even with young children. There is also a small museum containing sight-worthy exhibits. However the territory around the site looks a little bit shabby and the ruins of an ancient theater (which is across the road) are rather poorly... More

Ruins of one of ancient Greece's richest cities. Compact and nicely preserved. The acropolis towering above the city is a dramatic backdrop.

This is a well preserved temple from ancient times. The countryside in Greece is covered with temples and archeological sites. But if you are in the vicinity of Korinthos make sure to visit this one. Once of the nicer ones you will find.

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.
