This half-day excursion from Athens gives you plenty of time to explore the many treasures around Corinth. Spend the morning uncovering the ruins of the classical city of Corinth and also enjoy short stops at the Corinth Canal and the ancient port town of Kechries.
You'll head southwest through pretty countryside to the steep-walled Corinth Canal, which connects the Aegean and Ionian seas. You'll be able to take some great pics from above. Next up is ancient Corinth. The former stomping ground of the mythical Jason of the Argonauts is one of the Peloponnese's most underrated classical archaeological sites. St Paul also lived and preached here. Let your guide bring the past to life as you discover the Agora, or market place, Pirene fountain and Doric Temple of Apollo, which dates from the fifth century BC.
Rounding off the morning is a stop at the seaside town of Kechries, where St Paul is said to have disembarked from his ship before making the overland journey to Corinth.
