Best of Corinth & Loutraki City
Starting from Athens, we will drive westwards, along with the beautiful scenic coastal until we finally reach the Corinth canal or Isthmus. The Corinth canal connects the Aegean sea with the Ionian sea, and also separates the Peloponnese from the rest of Greece’s mainland. We will make a short stop at the Corinth Canal and then in about 15-20 minutes, we will drive through the beautiful local villages to reach the Ancient Corinth. This is the place where Saint Paul preached and lived for about two years. During the ancient times, the town of Corinth was considered as one of the richest cities in Greece, due to the remains of the Temple of Apollo, during the 6th century BC and the ancient Agora. After your visit to the Archaeological site of Ancient Corinth, we are going to depart for Loutraki.
Loutraki is a very beautiful seaside city with a lovely beach and lots of amazing local places for lunch and drinks. Just about an hour away from Athens, Loutraki is an amazing choice for an exploration off the beaten path. On Mount Gerania just above Loutraki is the monastery of Saint Patapios, built in the 11th century. It is reachable by car and offers spectacular views of the northern Peloponnese, the Corinthian Isthmus and the Saronic Gulf. Another secret paradise of this area is Lake Vouliagmeni. Lake Vouliagmeni is a lagoon located 16 kilometers northwest of Loutraki, very close to the archaeological site of Iraion and to the settlement of Perachora. It has a maximum length of 2 km and a maximum width of about 1 km. Its depth does not exceed 40 meters. It has a sandy beach as opposed to Loutraki beach. This tour combines archaelogical sites, religious monuments, greek natural beauty, mountains, waterfalls, lakes and of course authentic local places for lunch and drinks. A fantastic choice to combine exploration with relaxation and make the most out of your time in Greece.
