WELCOME TO ANCIENT CORINTH

Ancient Corinth is well worth visiting!


It has an extensive and hugely interesting archaeological site with the oldest standing temple and a museum. The village still stands on the same spot today so unlike other sites you can actually sit and eat or drink within sight of these ruins and the place where the Apostle Paul preached. This is overlooked by Acrocorinth, a hill fortress which has impressive architectural evidence of numerous historic invasions; as well as stunning panoramic view of both the Corinthian and Saronic Gulfs. The Acropolis in Athens could once be seen from it's own temple.

What few people realize is that as well as a destination in itself, Ancient Corinth is the perfect base from which to experience all the diversity Greece has to offer. Located at the gateway of the Peloponnese, it is within an hour driving distance to nearly all facets of the Greek experience. Why search for new hotels and parking when you can return to the peace and quiet of your own village each day? Hotel rates are low in comparison to other locations and the local Tavernas offer excellent traditional Greek fare.
