Signage to find this attraction wasn’t good once you left the main highway. Once there we didn’t go in. There’s a reasonable view of the Temple of Apollo from outside, and having read other reviews we decided that maybe paying money to trudge round ruins...More

The ruins of Ancient Corinth were not as large or impressive as that of Ancient Athens - but they were way less crowded and very impressive. You could get much closer to the ruins and visualize what the city center must have been like in...More

We came here unplanned. Our guide added it on to our trip and we was not disappointed. We actually found it more impressive than Acropolis! Costs 8€ to get in and completely worth it. Museum is really good with all statues and pottery. The ruins...More

We did two fantastic trips from Athens to Ancient Corinth and also Delphi with Athens Taxi Tours (with Michael Sterianos). I would also contact him to see what he could arrange. Very helpful and great to deal with.
