Coming from Britain, we're used to archaeological sites but this dwarfs almost anything found 'at home'. Another superbly laid out museum, and then magnificent remains, meticulously identified by the usual explanatory boards. As Christian believers, it was an enormous privilege for us to stand where the Apostle Paul justified himself before the proconsul Gallio (Act 18).
The village downhill from the ruins is unfortunately geared to the tourist trade but a pleasant meal can be found.
We came by bus from Athens and then, asking in 'new' Corinth, where to catch the local bus up to Old Athens, we experienced to the full the hospitality of Greek people as they debated how best to ensure we didn't miss the next departure from the stop further into town (which we didn't!). But don't miss the last local bus back down - possibly at 3.30.
