Corinth and Loutraki

Best of Corinth and Loutraki

Embarking from Athens, our journey takes us westward along the enchanting coastal route, eventually leading to the Corinth Canal or Isthmus. Serving as a conduit between the Aegean and Ionian seas, the canal also acts as a geographic boundary, separating the Peloponnese from the rest of mainland Greece. A brief pause at the Corinth Canal precedes a 15-20 minute drive through picturesque local villages, culminating in our arrival at Ancient Corinth. This historic site, where Saint Paul once preached and resided for two years, boasts remnants of the Temple of Apollo from the 6th century BC and the ancient Agora, marking Corinth as one of Greece’s wealthiest cities in antiquity.

Following the exploration of the Archaeological site of Ancient Corinth, our journey continues towards Loutraki. Nestled along the coast, Loutraki captivates with its beautiful beaches and an array of charming local establishments for delectable meals and refreshing beverages. Just an hour away from Athens, Loutraki offers an off-the-beaten-path experience. Atop Mount Gerania, overlooking Loutraki, stands the 11th-century monastery of Saint Patapios, accessible by car and providing breathtaking views of the northern Peloponnese, the Corinthian Isthmus, and the Saronic Gulf.

Adding to the allure of this region is the hidden gem of Lake Vouliagmeni, located 16 kilometers northwest of Loutraki, in proximity to the archaeological site of Iraion and the settlement of Perachora. This lagoon, with a maximum length of 2 km and width of approximately 1 km, features a sandy beach distinguishing it from Loutraki Beach. With a depth not surpassing 40 meters, Lake Vouliagmeni provides a serene setting. This comprehensive tour seamlessly combines archaeological wonders, religious landmarks, Greek natural beauty, mountains, waterfalls, lakes, and authentic local venues for a delightful culinary experience. Offering an exquisite blend of exploration and relaxation, this itinerary ensures you make the most of your time in Greece. Enjoy with us our Corinth and Loutraki day tour.
