Discover the ancient and natural wonders of Corinth, all in the company of a knowledgeable guide to fill you in on the history of the area. Close to the Ancient city of Corinth, first see the large citadel of Acrocorinth. It was successively used and fortified by many conquerors like the Romans and the Byzantines. Through its imposing entrance gates, enter the castle and explore. Explore the ancient town of Corinth, one of the richest towns in Ancient Greece, where St. Paul lived and preached for 2 years. Visit the ruins of the ancient city in which you can see the remains of the Agora and one of the most outstanding monuments of pre –Roman period, the temple of Apollo. Head to Ancient Heraion and enjoy the chance to have a refreshing swim at the sanctuary's beach. For the more adventurous, have the opportunity to do some cliff-jumping from the surrounding rocks, as the sea in the sanctuary cove is both deep and clear. Visit the Malagavi Lighthouse which is situated above ancient Heraion, on the western tip of cape Malagavi in the Gulf of Corinth. One of the oldest stone lighthouses in Greece built in 1897 that is still in operation you can get to the lighthouse by walking up a small pathway.
