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...

Excellently kept archeological site/ museum with artifacts and monuments from ancient Corinth. Tavernas and tourist shops are nearby its well worth the drive from Athens.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2014

The site itself was good, and there were relevant references to Paul the Apostle, including the place where he stood trial. The temple was also interesting. However, coming from Athens this place was rather far. From Larissa Station, I took a train which runs hourly, then changed to another train. I then had to walk down into town ( approx... More

Ancient Corinth is being dug out at the moment, and the site is really impressive. Signs tell you what you see, and the pamphlet you get at the entrance is very informative.

We enjoyed walking thru the small town to get to the site of the ancient ruins of Corinth. The site is interesting for history buffs and one is able to thoroughly walk throughout the whole site. The museum is also interesting with an impressive collection of artifacts. As already stated, it has limited shade, so it's best visited early in... More

This place is simply something you have to see. We were there 2 times and will visit it again. Good idea is not to visit around noon at summer time because there is almost no shade and the temperature rises real high. In the site there are no restaurants so you have to exit the site to have a drink... More

I stopped here one afternoon on my way from Athens to Nafplion, to grab lunch and see the archeological sites. I am happy I made the trip. I walked around the entire archeological site and got plenty of pictures. I even ran into a goat farmer who posed for a picture. Lunch was a bit expensive where I stopped but... More

Ancient Corinth is a large important site that is definitely worth a visit. At the entrance is the Temple of Apollo that is shown on all the brochures, but the rest of the site is very interesting as well. You can cover the whole site in a couple of hours, but also reserve time for the museum which is terrific.... More

The Greek version of Corinth was leveled by the Romans,who later rebuilt it on the same spot. Signs illustrate how at least three versions of the city overlay each other. Strolling through the Roman forum, one can imagine Paul the Apostle preaching here. The Apollo temple is still impressive with seven columns standing. The museum does a good job of... More
