Daily tour to Corinth, the city that commands the entrance to the Peloponnese with its breathtaking man-made canal. Delve into Corinth’s rich history, as evidenced by the ruins of the ancient city and the Archaeological Museum.
Corinth lies some 80 km west of Athens, to a region that has played a pivotal role in Greek history since antiquity. First, we cross to the Peloponnese over the Isthmus or, as presently known, the Corinth Canal, which was dug out in 1893 at the narrowest part of the stretch of land that connects mainland Greece with the Peloponnese region. The approximately 6 km of land between the Saronic and the Corinthian bays was a busy crossing point since antiquity, when they would roll the ships on tree logs over this distance, offering a much faster route from the Aegean to the Ionian Sea than sailing around the Peloponnese.
Exploiting this strategic location made Corinth wealthy and powerful from as early as the 8th century BC, controlling the passage between Athens and Sparta.
Just a few kilometers west of modern-day Corinth, excavations have unearthed the foundations of the whole ancient city center, and the artifacts discovered there are on display at the adjacent Archaeological Museum. It’s no accident that the ancient city was built here, beneath a solitary hill overlooking the entire flat area – just like Athens developed around the Acropolis.
The Acrocorinth fortress is ideal for controlling the narrow Isthmus passage, so it has been standing there since antiquity, playing a critical part even during the Independence War against the Ottomans in the 19th century.
