Corinth private tour offers you a great chance to visit an impressive archeological site, a great engineering achievement and one of the most important places for the Christianity. Visit Ancient Corinth, Corinth Canal and Apostle Paul’s step in a few hours. Enjoy the astonishing view from Acrocorinth.
Starting early in the morning from Athens and after an hour of driving we will be stopping at the Corinth Canal, a great piece of work completed in 1886, that connects the Aegean with the Ionian Sea and technically transforms the Peloponnese peninsula into an island.
Originally, there was an isthmus, a narrow strip of land connecting the Peloponnese with Mainland Greece, that they are now connected with a bridge.
A few minutes later we will be arriving at the site of Ancient Corinth.
Ancient Corinth due to its strategic location next to the Isthmus, exceeded Athens in terms of wealth.
Ancient Corinth had an important role at the Persian and the Peloponnesian Wars and was an important city-state from the classical times to the Roman Times, as a capital of the Roman province of Achaia, and until the Byzantine period.
In the site you can see the temple of Apollo (7th Century BCE), the ruins of the Roman city (44 BCE), the Lehaion road and the place where Apostole Paul preached to the Corinthians. We will also drive up to Acrocorinth, a fortress that it was continuously fortified from the Neolithic times until the end of the Ottoman occupation (1822).
There, you will see the Frankish tower, the Pirene Spring and also get the chance to enjoy the amazing view from the top of the castle.
After the tour is complete we will be taking the same way back to Athens.
