We went to Ancient Corinth as part of a Shore Excursion. This site contains a nice little museum and the Ancient Corinth Archaeological site. For Christians, Corinth is known from the two books First Corinthians and Second Corinthians in the New Testament. These ruins date back to about 400 BC. It is about one hour drive from Athens.

With an awe-inspiring history, the ruins of ancient Corinth help one to put in context both the history of ancient Greece and daily life. As a Christian it is moving to walk in the steps of St Paul and have a part of the bible come to life. An important site in many ways - a must for anyone interested... More

This was an interesting site where a very ancient marble road is still in use....incredible! The attraction for us was Bema - the place where Paul was questioned by King Agrippa. The platform was still intact because it is stone! Very interesting museum of medical procedures and ideas from the times before Christ.

You need to have a guide who is a good storyteller and able to ignite your imagination if you are here. otherwise, if you are a student of ancient civilizations, this will be a dream come true. We enjoyed the day out here but it's not our favourite site compared to Mycenae or Olympia.

Ancient Corinth is a wonderful 1.5 hour train ride from Athens, and makes for a great half-day trip from Athens. The entrance fee is five euro, and the site is relatively well preserved. The pleasant surprise is the very nice museum located on the site, preserving wonderful statuary and priceless artifacts, all of which is included in the price of... More

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.
