This site has quite spectacular columns still remaining from the temple, and a large compound showing how the town might have worked with baths, shops, walkways, a public speaking area etc. The site has been well-trodden, so its paths are quite managed. But it's definitely worth a visit to see.

Ancient Corinth is an important and amazing historical site/ruins. Really, really cool. Summertime it's hot so go early but if you are lucky to go in spring you will be rewarded by wildflowers and lovely surroundings.

Fascinating archeological ruins that you can walk through, on the same streets that ancient Greeks trod. Not just a temple or building, but a whole city is available for your attention. A gfeat historical stop.

Visiting Ancient Corinth is not just visiting the standing ruins, but it is also an opportunity to get a taste of history through the artifacts in the museum. I recommend getting a tour guide to help you experience all that is available. To walk along some of the same paths as Paul gives a strong sense of closeness with books... More

All Archaeological sites close at 3pm during winter time. At 3pm in Greece the sun is usually still bright. Really bad policy. Went to the Temple of Apollo in Corinth at about 1:30 pm, was told that the museum is closed! Why? Too few people visiting! Oh yeah? When you close the museum so early, there will be even less...

At the bottom of the Acrocorinth lays what is known today as Ancient Corinth. Ancient Corinth was one of the largest and most important cities in Greece, with a population of 90,000 in 400 BC. After its total destruction in 146 BC, the Romans built a new city in its place in 44 BC. During its prosperity, Corinth hosted Istmian... More

Ancient Corinth is easy to explore as the area is flat. All of the statures are in the accompanying museum which is part of the visit. And while we enjoyed walking in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul, we didn't enjoy it as much as some of the other archeological sites we visited. There are many little cafes for a... More

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).
