What You Can Expect

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.

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.

We very much enjoyed this tour, and it included even more than we expected. Vicki was an upbeat, friendly and excellent guide who was extremely knowledgeable about Greek history and culture. We were pleased to be able to stop at the Corinthian Canal on our way to the ancient Corinth ruins, and we especially appreciated Vicki's understanding of the biblical events that happened in Corinth and the surrounding area. Great experience! Glad we decided to do it!

The CHAT Tour company made it very easy to meet them at a convenient spot near my hotel. They walked us to our tour bus. The tour guide did a great job giving us history of the surrounding area as we drove to Corinth. This was a fantastic tour and a must if you have the time while in Athens.

This was a well organised and very good way to get to an amazing site. Our guide was good and very knowledgeable. The site itself includes an interesting museum. We also stopped off to see the Corinth Canal.

I enjoyed this tour because it gave interesting information about the major archeological buildings of ancient Corinth. The guide was very knowledgeable and the group was small (18 people).
