We had been to Ancient Corinth a few times in the past to shop and dine; this past summer we decided to see the ruins of what was once one of the largest and most important cities in ancient Greece with a population of 90,000 in 400 B.C. The feature attracation is definitely the Temple of Apollo with 7 columns... More

We arrived in ancient Corinth early afternoon and parked free in the public parking lot half a block below the town's narrow main street. I should mention first that the public restrooms next to the parking lot are despicable. There is intentionally no toilet paper in the ladies room, no paper towels for drying hands, no air dryers, and there... More

Great place to visit, train journey from Athens to Corinth was interesting and very scenic in places, Took a taxi from the station to Ancient Corinth as the bus does not go to the new station. The sites were very interesting, lots of space to stroll round and the museum was good. Really enjoyed my visit. Small row of shops... More

It is very difficult to grasp how dramatically the land scape and ocean defined the landscape thousands of years ago without driving out this distance and looking to where the sea currently lies. Small museum and large amounts of well-preserved architecture.

We took a day trip from Athens and went to Corinth, Mycenae and Epidaurus with a driver and guide. This is the way to see the area outside of Athens. We were here with no buses and few people. This site is just over the fence from the parking lot and on flat land so it is very easy to... More

Extensive archaeological site with ruins of Greek temples. Where St. Paul preached to the Corinthians. Easy access to ruins. Museum contains artifacts from several centuries BC. Museum staff is very knowledgable.

This site is better than most because it has decent signage (the lack of, being a problem with most Greek sites). Corinth was a massive city in biblical times which makes Paul's journeys and teachings here all the more impressive. I've added a picture of the Bema (judgment seat) where he was brought before Gallio of Achaia, in Acts 18:... More

We visited this place before and were not too impressed. However, on our recent trip we visited it again with a guide who was able to put this place in perspective as to the places and persons mentioned in the Bible which really helped us to appreciate the historic significance of this place. Standing in front of the judgment seat... More

This is one of those must visit sites of ancient Greece. The ruins are fairly compact, and have nice vistas overlooking the sea. The ruins have quite a rich history - from the ancient Greeks to early Christian times (you can see the platform where St. Paul preached to the Corinthians). Apparently the site is popular with touring Christian groups.... More

This was so fascinating because we have read about this place in the Bible. Loved seeing the Bema seat. The museum fills in the gaps. This is a must see place on a Biblical Greece tour.
