    Well worth visiting
    Wonderful archaeological site with much to see. Very moving to walk around the ancient city centre, and very easy to imagine city life in ancient times. Slightly disappointed that access to the Odeon and theatre was not possible. Well worth visiting. 10 Euro taxi ride from Korinthos station - no buses seem to serve the site in winter.

    Ancient Corinth is vast
    This was a very large site with much to see. The Temple of Apollo, the site where St. Paul was allowed to preach to the Corinthians, the Roman ruins of the baths, cistern, and outdoor lavatories are among the many places to see here. There were also ruins of small Roman shops. The flora is unusual throughout the site.

    An amazing walk through ancient history
    An amazing visit to another powerful piece of ancient history. Ancient Corinth was one of the largest and most important cities of Greece, and was then demolished by the Romans. So many artifacts have been found, reconstructed and displayed in the museum. Expect crowds.

    Worth the drive
    It's a pile of rocks, but with a history. The tour is self-guided. The museum has some cool artifacts in it. The wander around the site has informative signs. It was late May, so it was going to be hot. I got there 12min before opening, arriving when the staff arrived. I thought there would be a big line, but it was just me! :D But 2 tour buses arrived at about 9am when I was leaving. Note that the hill overlooking Ancient Corinth, Acrocorinth, is not part of the Ancient Corinth experience, and it's accessible via car. I'm glad I figured that out (different review). It was a lovely early morning drive from Athens to Corinth. And the new city of Corinth is just a small city, but the beach is STUNNING!! I would go back just for the beach!

There so many great stops to see ruins and this was no exception. It was easy to locate and had ample parking. We did not buy the tour tickets. We could see the ruins and take photos without purchasing tickets.

This was quite an experience. We did hire a guide to take us through the museum and site, and I'm glad that we did.

A very good place to wander around the ancient ruins of Corinth. Lovely that it's not tidied up but rocks and pillars lie in your path. A better experience than the Parthenon , for me, not so touristy.

We visited Ancient Corinth and Mycenae with a tour from our cruise ship from Athens. Our first stop was to view the canal from the bridge. We stopped here earlier on our cruise and went on a boat tour through the Corinth Canal. Nice to see two different perspectives of the Canal. Our next stop was Ancient Corinth. We had an excellent guide that was very knowledgeable and provided a wonderful history of the site. There are several structures that are still standing and the craftmanship of some of the columns is amazing. There is also a small museum that we toured that had some nice pieces found on the site and nearby. I would recommend going here.
