About this activity
The half day tour to Corinth starts from Athens early in the morning. Your professional driver will drive you along the scenic coastal road that leads to the Corinth Canal and Corinth.

After an hour drive you will reach the famous Isthmus, one of the most significant strategic locations in Greece and the Mediterranean, because it connects the mainland of Greece with the Peloponnese Peninsula.

The Isthmus is 6,5 km wide and the Corinth Canal is constructed at the narrow point of the Isthmus. This place offers you the chance to take some pictures of the truly breathtaking views, before continuing to Ancient Corinth.

Ancient Corinth was a very important city state in the ancient years. The main city was spreading below the imposing fortress of Acrocorinth, which offered a significant strategic position for the city, because it allowed its people to control the bypassing ships trading goods between Italy and Greece.

Our Christian tour to Corinth will take you to the heart of the city where St Paul lived and preached for 2 years, teaching people the word of the new religion at the time.

Ancient Corinth is much associated with St Paul, who lived in Corinth close to Akillas and Priscilla, a Jewish couple living in the area. St Paul established a Christian church in Corinth and also a church at ancient Kechreai.

After a 2 years’ stay in Corinth, Apostle Paul left for Ephesus (Acts 18:18) leaving behind him a great church, which would prove a difficult church with many problems because of the cultural surroundings. He wrote at least 3-4 letters trying to solve these problems and after nearly six years he visited Corinth during the third missionary journey and preached again in the area. St. Paul`s trial by Gallio took place in the agora (Acts 18:12-17). It is from Corinth, also, that St. Paul wrote to the Thessalonians.

After the visit to the ancient Corinth, you will visit the Fortress of Acrocorinth, which fortified the city in a solid and exemplary manner, allowing it to be a very strong and safe city.

You will also have the chance to take some amazing pictures to the sea and the land of Corinth. You will also see the Cathedral of St Paul along with the pretty, new marina and the harbor of the city with numerous boats of all sizes.

Once we finish the tour to the castle, we will return to the village of Ancient Corinth, and visit the Archaeological Museum of Corinth with important findings and the impressive sculptures that are definitely worth your time.

Your driver will then bring you back to Athens, where you will have time to enjoy your lunch.
