A must see
Oct 2021
If you are interested in history, this is must see place to go. Yes of course it was where the apostle Paul lived for 18 months and the site of the original church has been excavated. However the history of the city and the surrounding area encompasses much more over time and it is rather fascinating to try to understand the impacts it had. There is a museum as well that is interesting.

So much to see and understand
Sep 2021
We spent about 90 minutes walking the site with a guide. We had read the guidebook descriptions, but she added so much context. We felt it was well worth the money.

Everywhere you look you see something that has a story. It is so much better to hear it rather than try to read it.

Worth going for the views as well as the ancient archaeology. Expect to spend 1.5 to 2 hours there. 12 euro entry fee.

Wish I Had A Guide
Sep 2021 • Couples
This was an amazing site that inspired me in so many ways. I just wish I hired a private guide to walk the site with me an explain what I was looking at. Yes, there were signs, but one sign covered a lot of material and I wasn't always sure what description went with what ruin.

It was an absolute thrill to see the burma where Apostle Paul preached and the 'layers' of ruins really had my imagination working hard to 'picture' what it all looked like in yesteryear. If only those stones could talk. Oh, the stories they could tell.

Don't miss the museum. It's small, but interesting. Social distancing is enforced and you can only follow the path in one direction, so there is no backtracking.

ANCIENT CORINTH

This was a shore excursion from our ship. Not one of the best ancient archeological sites in Greece, but interesting and should be combined with a trip to the nearby Corinth canal. The museum on site is worth spending some time in. The walking in all the areas is flat.

Great Walking Tour
Jul 2021
I highly recommend that you do the complete walk-around to see what has been excavated. You will also go into the great museum of treasures. This is a major site of one of the great cities of ancient Greece.

Ruins of one of the most important cities in ancient Greece. Ruins of the theaters, temples, gates and some buildings. Must see place for people interested in history. Entrance fee is 8 euros. There's also and archeological museum onsite.

Great piece of History
Apr 2021 • Family
This is a must see stop if you are interested in the history of the area. I only wanted to see the Bema stone and the Forum where the Apostle Paul spoke. However, the area is designed so that you have to walk in one direction beginning in the museum. Don’t rush, it’s worth the 8 Euro to see everything. By the time we saw the Bema, I was overwhelmed and felt as if I were standing on Holy Ground. Plan on at least an hour. It’s not wheelchair accessible.

Fascinating
Nov 2019
Maybe we were lucky in arriving before lunch time but there were not many people there. The atmosphere was overpowering and you realise that you are walking over many levels of history, some of the most ancient are still buried. The bus from Corinth takes you for a magical mystery tour along the coast before heading up to the ruins. Well worth it.
