Full description
Leave Athens and drive southwest until you reach the Corinth Canal that 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 (marketplace) and Temple of Apollo (6th-century BC) clearly show how rich and important Corinth was in ancient times. A short stop at the site of the ancient Port of Cehrees, where St. Paul disembarked will conclude the visit. Return back to Athens by the same route. If you are staying near the coast, you will be transferred back to your hotel at around 15:00 with the tour bus.

Quick touch of interesting History

The Trip was Ok and teh agency was also punctual. Historiacal explanation from the guide also complete the experience. Suggestion to improve: enlarge about half an hour the visit of the historical sites. We were a bit in a hurry to see all the ruins and for the visit to the museum we had just a few minutes.
