Description:

Our experienced driver will pick you up from your location (hotel, airport, cruise ship etc.) and we will drive along Kakia Skala, which is a road in a rocky and steep area on the Saronic coast and very dangerous for travellers in Greek mythology because of Sciron, a dreadful bandit that robbed his victims and threw them alive off the cliff.
A famous sight of the area is also the shipwreck of “Mediterranean Sky”.

Then, we will make a stop at the renowned Isthmus of Corinth, where you can enjoy the view and take photos of the Corinth Canal. The Corinth Canal is a great achievement of Greek history because it connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf. It consists of a single channel measuring 6,4 kilometres (4 miles) in length and 24.6 metres (81 ft) in width and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland.

Our next destination is the Ancient Corinth, one of the largest and most important cities in Greek and Roman times due to its geographical location that played a big role back then as a centre of trade, naval fleet, and as a major Roman colony of Julius Caesar.

Acrocorinth is the acropolis of Ancient Corinth which is a 575 metres (1886 ft) high monolithic mountain overlooking the ancient city of Corinth. It is one of the most important medieval castles of Greece due to its strategic and easily defendable position.

The Temple of Apollo is the most famous sight of Ancient Corinth built with 38 monolithic Doric style columns, 7 of which are still in place.

The Ancient Agora was the city’s main marketplace with a paved street featuring shops with all kinds of products and you can feel like a citizen of the ancient city as you walk on it.

The so-called “Bema” or “Rostrum” was a platform in the middle of the Agora where important juridical and political decisions were announced to the citizens of Corinth. It is known for the incident of Saint Paul and the Roman proconsul.

When our tour is completed we will return back to Athens.

Reviews

The ride was enjoyable and Nick the driver was happy and entertaining. Great location, historical and archaeological site, with museum, unobstructed views. A visit is enough to feel the energy of the place. Local shops around for coffee, ice cream and good food.

Very nice exhibits, especially the Roman Fountain. The museum left me speechless, a plethora of findings in perfect condition. Our tour guide Stephanos was amazing and I enjoyed learning all about Corinth.
