Athens - Ancient Corinth

Total Travel Time 8-9 hours

After a short stop for photos, we continue for ten minutes by car between fields with orange lemon trees and we reach Ancient Corinth and the only museum, the Temple of Apollo, the god of the Ores and the Sun, the Step (a raised platform) from where Paul declared to the Corinthians in AD 52
We will continue to visit Acrocorinth "Upper Corinth". The Acropolis of Ancient Corinth is a monolithic rock that oversees the ancient city of Corinth.

After a 90 km journey, along the highway, we reach the well-known Corinth Canal that connects the Corinthian Gulf with the Aegean Sea. It crosses the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnesian peninsula from mainland Greece, thus making it the peculiar island. Its length is 6.3 km and was built between 1881 and 1893.

The Isthmus of Corinth was an idea and a dream dating back 2000 years. The strip of land that
separates the Peloponnese and mainland Greece is called Isthmus. The closest point is
only 6 km wide.

Three circuit boards formed the defense of the hill. The highest peak on the site was the home of the Temple of Aphrodite that turned into a church and then became a mosque. At present, Akrokorinthos is one of the most important medieval castles in Greece.
