The whole area is worth to be visited, you can see the different cultures (Greek, Roman and Byzantine) that lived in the area and the different styles. Don't miss the museum.

Walking the grounds and seeing the excavations brought back the history to us. There is so much to be learned about how people lived together in peace and harmony. A visit to the museum afforded an insight into creativity of a much earlier time.

We visited the ancient Corinth ruins and spent ages wandering around. The museum was brilliant and we could have spent hours there. We wandered around the site from one end to the other and loved it. The fact that people were actually working on site and we could watch them uncover a beautiful mosaic floor was a bonus.

We loved the visit to the canal and only regretted the fact that we weren't sailing in it... I guess we'll get there someday. It's hard to believe it's man made. Don't miss!

I hate to say that if you've seen one ancient ruins, you've seen them all, but... IF you have the time, this is historically interesting, and they have a museum with some artifacts. But the ruins themselves are mostly stones laying on the ground. The tour guide can explain what it probably looked like in 1 AD, but of course... More

We enjoyed a great view of Corinth Canal and I would recommend to everyone who has a chance to come and see this famous attraction! Also, for adrenalin sport lovers should be fun because there is bungee jumping from the bridge!

Our visit to Ancient Corinth was enjoyable, though it was a hot day. The museum had many interesting artifacts, particularly the statue of Augustus Caesar. Lechaion Road, the Bema, and many other archaeological finds to peruse. Bring water and a hat or umbrella. Down the road, the Canal was an impressive piece of architecture, though the environs were not inspiring.

While in the Ancient city of Corinth I would recommend stopping and visiting this business. Yannis Sennis and his famiily have been creating Greek pottery in the ancient styles for three generations. Yannis's father created the pieces and Yannis and his wife paint them. They give you a demonstration of their work and provide you with a rich history of... More

The canal is overrun with hucksters / hustlers, / souvenir stands. It felt dirty and in disarray. We also ended up getting suckered into paying twice the normal rate for a taxi (another whole story - make sure you have an agreed to price or a reset meter when you enter the cab :( ) But for all the negativity...
