Special place to visit

I enjoyed the biblical history at this place. The day was warm and I was able to walk around the whole site and especially stand in the place where Paul preached to the Corinthians

This city was immortalised by two New Testament epistles, I & II Corinthians. The temple of Apollo, the agora, and general surroundings were impressive. We did not have time to go to the Acrocorinth but I will do so next time. A must to see Corinth and relatively close to Athens (80 km).

This compact site is a MUST see. The ruins are in good condition and easy to get about in. There has been some restoration work. There is clear evidence this site dates to pre 500BC and you can imagine well how it would have been as you walk around. There is a small museum that is also interesting and has... More

Enjoyed our visit to this archeological site, which is not so commercial or crowded as in Athens itself. The shopping street that can be reached from the back entrance of the site has many interesting and well priced items. Much better to get some pottery and other souvenirs here than in Athens in the touristy areas.

Ancient Corinth is a must-see for anyone interested in Greek history. The site features ruins from Greek, Roman, and Frankish eras, all around and atop one another. Combine this with a visit to the top of Acrocorinth as well as a stop in the museum on-site, and you'll have an amazing day. The town square adjacent to the site has... More

There has been much restoration work done. You can picture Paul preaching and defending himself here. There is both an old town Corinth and a new Corinth.

I contacted Zmichael Sterianos from our home in Australia before we left for Europe. We were to be visiting Athens on a cruise and I felt as if we had done all the usual touristy things in Athens on our previous visit. He suggested a taxi ride to the Corinth Canal( a great engineering feat) then a visit to ancient... More

Again, compliments of our taxi driver Kostas from Georges Taxi's for which we are very grateful. Twenty three different historical things to see, or imagine, from a time gone bye. It amazes me to see so much history at so many sites across Europe, Middle East and the Mediterranean but they are there for all to enjoy. From the Temple... More

Don't miss the Fountain of Peirene, with the water from the spring still burbling beneath, or the well-preserved Lechaion Road, and the 'shops' from Roman times, and of course you can't miss the older Greek Temple of Apollo. We found it a little tricky to find coming off the motorway from the south, but persevere, as it's one of the... More
