Corinth canal tour, a half day private tour to Corinth canal and ancient Corinth starts by driving via the coastal highway to Peloponnese. The first stop of the tour to Corinth is the famous Canal of Corinth which connects the Ionian sea with the Aegean sea through the Isthmus, and joins Peloponnese to the Greek mainland.We will make a stop here about 20 minutes to look at the canal from the bridge and if we are lucky we might see a ship going through the isthmus. After the Canal we will continue our interesting tour to reach our main destination, the Ancient Corinth.
In Ancient Corinth you will see the temple of Apollo (the God of Oracles and the Sun) 540BC , the Theater, the Roman Odeon and the Glauke fountain the Vima (step) from where St. Paul preached to the Corinthians in 52 A.D. and finally the Lechaion street . A visit to the Archaeological Museum which is known for its beautiful amphorae will impress you and the view from our last visit to Acrocorinthos or “Upper Corinth”, the Acropolis of Ancient Corinth, will be one of the best memories from our tour. There are the ruins of the Temple of Aphrodite and of many churches the view from there is spectacular .Acrocorinth is one of the most important medieval castle sites of Greece.After Acrocorinth You may have your lunch at ancient Corinth before we take the way back in Athens.
