Half-Day Tour to Ancient Corinth




The tour will depart the hotel by air-conditioned motor coach with an English-speaking guide via the scenic highway in the direction of the Corinth Canal. The Canal, which is 6,343 meters long and 8 meters deep, was dug to provide a quick link between the Ionian and Aegean seas.

Now the Peloponnesian is connected to the Greek mainland by a narrow bridge, which spans the Corinth Canal. After a short stop for pictures at the Canal, continue to ancient Corinth. In the middle of the 3rd century B.C. Corinth regained prosperity, which had been overshadowed by the Athenians in foreign trade. Corinth remained thriving until the Romans occupied and destroyed the city. Cesar founded a Roman colony on the site in 44 B.C. Corinth also was the site where St. Paul preached in 51 A.D. and reprimanded the Corinthians for their frivolous and dissolute ways.
