Corinth Tours

139 Reviews
Corinth
With its spectacular mountainside setting looking out over the Gulf of Corinth, the ancient city of Corinth is one of the most impressive in the Peloponnese. The remarkably preserved Roman ruins are the star attraction for visitors, while the modern town of Corinth sits on the coast, a short drive from the famous Corinth Canal.
 
The Basics
Most visitors head straight for the archaeological site of ancient Corinth, where the most memorable monument is the Doric Temple of Apollo, which dates back to 540 BC. Other highlights of a walking tour include the Peirene Fountain, the ancient theater, the Peribolos of Apollo, and the Roman Odeon.
 
It’s possible to explore on a half-day tour from Athens, but full-day tours often combine a visit to Corinth with the nearby acropolis of Acrocorinth, the Byzantine monastery of Daphni, the ancient city of Mycenae, or the seaside town of Nafplio.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • There is an entrance fee to visit the Corinth archaeological site, which includes entry to the Archaeological Museum of Ancient Corinth.
  • Wear comfortable shoes to explore ancient Corinth; the archaeological site has uneven and hilly terrain.
  • Some parts of the site are accessible for wheelchair users and those with reduced mobility, but the ground is pebbly in parts and assistance may be required.
 
How to Get There
Corinth is located along the coast of the Gulf of Corinth on the Peloponnese Peninsula. Cross the Corinth Canal if you’re driving from Athens. Buses run from Athens to the modern town of Corinth, and there are also direct trains from Athens airport. From Corinth town, regular buses run up the short distance to the ancient city, around 4.5 miles (7 kilometers) away.
 
When to Get There
It’s possible to visit Corinth year-round, but the busiest period is during the summer months of July and August. Making an early start is advisable, but not only to escape the crowds—the ruins offer little shade and the midday sun can be unbearably hot.
 
Corinth Canal
Linking mainland Greece to the Peloponnese Peninsula, the Roman-built Corinth Canal is an impressive feat of engineering. A hugely important navigational route during the 19th century, modern cruise or freight ships no longer use the narrow isthmus connecting the Gulf of Corinth and the Saronic Gulf today. However, the dramatic cliffs provide a thrilling backdrop for sightseeing cruises, and the canal bridges are a popular spot for bungee jumping.
