The city dates back to 5,000-3000 BC, but it is the legendary canal, cut through solid rock by Emperor Nero, that has put it on the global map. The marvel of engineering is 82 feet (25 meters) wide and 20,180 feet (6,154 meters) long.
The ancient historians Plutarch and Strabo are quoted as saying that Corinth was extremely prosperous and one of the 3 main economic centers of Roman Greece, due to its location on the isthmus of two waterways, one leading to Asia and the other to Italy.
During the tour you will visit the Corinth museum and see ancient life come alive. Next to the museum is Ancient Corinth, the actual 6th Century BC Doric Temple of Apollo, remains of a Roman city, & the Agora (market place).
Enjoy the drive through beautiful lakeside countryside on the way back to Athens, where you will go to the top of the world-renowned Acropolis to see the legendary Parthenon, Temple of Nike, Temple of Athena and other monuments. Your guide will be a treasure trove of information throughout the day, filling you in on Ancient Greek history, as well as uncovering the art and culture of the everyday citizens and Greek gods.
