Ancient Corinth

Corinth was a city-state on the Isthmus of Corinth, the narrow stretch of land that joins the Peloponnese to the mainland of Greece, roughly halfway between Athens and Sparta. The modern town of Corinth is located approximately 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) northeast of the ancient ruins.
For Christians, Corinth is well-known from the two letters of Saint Paul in the New Testament, First Corinthians and Second Corinthians. Corinth is also mentioned in the Book of Acts as part of the Apostle Paul's missionary travels. In addition, the second book of Pausanias' Description of Greece is devoted to Corinth.
Ancient Corinth was one of the largest and most important cities of Greece, with a population of 90,000 in 400 BC. The Romans demolished Corinth in 146 BC, built a new city in its place in 44 BC, and later made it the provincial capital of Greece.

In our Corinth tour with Tours N Transfers Hellas from Athens you will have the chance to visit many sites: Ancient Corinth (the site of the ancient city state), the Archaeological Museum of Corinth, Temple of Apollo, Acrocorinth, and even a stopover at the famous Corinth canal.
The Archaeological Museum of Corinth is located within the archaeological site. Artifacts are on display in three display rooms and a large courtyard. The remainder comprise a study collection. The exhibition consists of two main galleries housing sculpture, ceramics, and minor objects of prehistoric through medieval date deriving from excavations in and around Corinth.
The Temple of Apollo is impossible to miss; It dominates the whole area of archaeology which is ancient Corinth. With new lighting since January 2013 you can now be awed after dark as well. The remains of the temple lie on a terrace which is on the highest part of the city. From here there are wonderful views, extending as far as the Gulf of Corinth. It's a favourite spot from which to take photos, and to get an overall view of the extent of the ancient city of Corinth.
Acrocorinth, the acropolis of ancient Corinth, is a monolithic rock that was continuously occupied from archaic times to the early 19th century. The city's archaic acropolis, already an easily defensible position due to its geomorphology, was further heavily fortified during the Byzantine Empire as it became the seat of the strategos of the Thema of Hellas. Later it was a fortress of the Franks after the Fourth Crusade, the Venetians and the Ottoman Turks.
