Explore the glory of Ancient Corinth

The Corinth Canal (Isthmus) connects the Saronic to the Corinthian gulf. The idea for the canal, was conceived by Periander however the canal was finally opened after Greece’s independence. On the western side of the canal you can see the Ancient Passage Way, “Diolkos”. The Diolkos stone road, a marvel of engineering from the time of Ancient Greece, allowed ships to travel overland from the Ionian Sea to the Aegean, bypassing the Peloponnesian Peninsula.
Acrocorith was Corinth’s fortress throughout its history. At the peak of a 575 m high hill, has always been the fortified Acropolis of Corinth. It is the oldest, largest and most impressive castle in the Peloponnese, whose walls were built during the middle Ages.
At the Archaeological site of Ancient Corinth, you can see the foundations of a significant Roman basilica, the temple of the goddess Tyche (Fortune) the stores in the agora, the temple of Apollo, etc The Archaeological Museum operates at the archaeological site, which was violently interrupted in 1990. The theft was the largest one that has occurred in a Greek museum however the antiquities were returned back to their birthplace in 2001.
