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.

We traveled to Corinth in late October and had a perfect day with perfect weather. The site is excellent and I really enjoy being able to walk along and in the ruins. The museum was very nice and has some excellent displays. Take the time to walk through slowly and enjoy the history.

One word. Awesome.
Seeing antiquity in the context of history fascinating. Relating places and buildings to people recorded in history- wow. A must see if you go to the Greek Peloponnese.

I visited both the Korinthos Canal and the Ancient Korinthos in the same day. I liked the canal rather than the ruins. The canal is such a beautiful thing under the sunshine that you will never forget. There is path alone the main bridge so that one can walk on the bridge to see the canal.

My second visit to this ancient site was less hurried and I was able to better appreciate what was available to see. Really liked the artifacts in the museum especially the pottery, a pity that so much of the sig is still un excavated but then the residents surely would not appreciate their homes being demolished to find history. If you want to appreciate this site a visit in a small group with a local guide would be best. Definitely a site that requires 3 to 4 hours of wandering around to really appreciate.

If you are not in Greece for the ancient history go visit something else. A site with a lot history.
