Discover the secrets of Ancient Corinth on this day trip with private transfer. Cross the Isthmus of Corinth and visit ancient sites like the Temple of Apollo and the Acropolis of Corinth.
We will begin our journey by crossing the highway and stopping at the Canal (Isthmus) of Corinth. We will witness the narrow strip of land that connects mainland Greece to the Peloponnese. while the canal drilled across it connects the Saronic with the Corinthian Gulf, thus connecting the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea.
We will continue on to Ancient Corinth and admire the famous and imposing archaic Temple of Apollo, with monolithic Doric columns of which seven still stand prominently above the ruins of the ancient Agora.
We will visit Acrocorinth (the Acropolis of Corinth), a steep rock 575 meters height that dominates the plain of Corinth. We will learn about the strategic location of Acrocorinth such that the Corinthians could control the only entrance from mainland Greece to Peloponnese and all communication between Corinth and the Saronic Gulf. We will enjoy the impressive panoramic view of the area and take pictures to remember your trip.
Finally, you can sit back and relax on the drive back to your accommodation in Athens.
