Corinth Half-Day Trip from Athens

Corinth Half-Day Tour from Athens

Begin your half-day tour with a pickup from your central Athens hotel or at a central meeting point.

Hop inside your comfortable, air-conditioned coach and admire the scenery as you travel along the coast to Corinth.

Enjoy views of the beautiful beaches of Glyfada, Vouliagmeni and Varkiza on route, and stop to see the Corinth Canal, the narrow, 19th-century canal that links the Saronic Gulf of the Aegean Sea with Ionian Sea.

Take snaps here and then continue to the archaeological site of ancient Corinth, an important trading city in Greek and Roman times that stood at the meeting point of southern and northern Greece.

Here, enjoy 90 minutes to explore the ruined temples, bathhouse, forum and theater, and see the bema — a stone platform where it’s believed St Paul once stood in front of gathered judges.

As you stroll around the sun-baked relics, stop to soak up wonderful views over the Saronic Gulf in the distance.


Afterward, return to your coach and enjoy a short stop at the seaside town of Kehreai. Your trip then ends at the original starting point in Athens.

Beautiful drive to see the Corinth Canal and the ruins at Corinth. Our guide was wonderful, she really knew all the facts and details, funny too! The half day tour was nice if you have been on the go every day, because this gets you back early afternoon. Not such a long day.
