Ancient Corinth Half Day from Athens

Leave Athens and drive South West until we reach the Corinth Canal which connects the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea (short stop).

Drive on and visit the ancient town of Corinth where St. Paul lived and preached for two years.

The remains of the City, which include the Agora (market place) and Apollo's Temple (6th century B.C.) clearly show how rich and important Corinth was in Ancient Times.

A short stop at the Site of the Ancient Port of Cehries, where St. Paul disembarked, will conclude the visit.

Return to Athens in time for lunch.

    Stop At: Corinth Canal, Isthmia, Corinth 201 00 Greece

    Take this Ancient Corinth Half Day tour and visit one of the major cities of antiquity.

    Leave Athens and drive South West until we reach the Corinth Canal which connects the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea (short stop). The route we follow was called the Sacred Way because it was the route taken by a procession celebrating the Eleusinian Mysteries, were initiations held every year for the cult of Demeter and Persephone based at Eleusis in ancient Greece.

    On Fridays, along the way, we stop at the Monastery of Daphni, a 11th-century Byzantine monastery listed as a World Heritage site together with Monasteries Hosios Loukas and Nea Moni of Chios. The interior of the church is decorated with superb mosaics, a unique, fine example of the Classical idealism of Middle Byzantine art. The crowded scenes of the mosaics narrate scenes from the life of Christ and the Virgin.
