Corinth Tour Greece

Ancient Corinth Half Day Tour

Embark on our ‘Corinth Half Day Tour’ from Athens as we journey westward along the stunning coastal route, taking in picturesque scenery. Our first stop is the Corinth Canal, a remarkable 6-kilometer waterway connecting the Aegean Sea to the Ionian Sea, serving as a geographical separator between the Peloponnese and the rest of mainland Greece.

Pause for a brief visit to the Corinth Canal, then continue on a 15-20 minute drive through charming local villages to reach Ancient Corinth, where Saint Paul once preached and resided for approximately two years. Explore the historical richness of Ancient Corinth, known for its prosperity in ancient times, featuring remnants such as the Temple of Apollo dating back to the 6th century BC and the Ancient Agora.

Next, ascend to the Acropolis of Corinth (Acrocorinth) for a breathtaking panoramic view of the entire area. According to local mythology, Briareus, one of the three Hecatonchires, played a pivotal role in deciding the territorial dispute between Poseidon, the God of the Sea, and Helios, the God of the Sun. This mythological tale determined that the Corinth Canal (Isthmus) belonged to Poseidon, while the Acropolis of Corinth (Acrocorinth) was under the domain of Helios.

Join us on this enriching half-day journey to uncover the historical and mythological wonders of Corinth.
