Wish I Had A Guide
Sep 2021 • Couples
This was an amazing site that inspired me in so many ways. I just wish I hired a private guide to walk the site with me an explain what I was looking at. Yes, there were signs, but one sign covered a lot of material and I wasn't always sure what description went with what ruin.

It was an absolute thrill to see the burma where Apostle Paul preached and the 'layers' of ruins really had my imagination working hard to 'picture' what it all looked like in yesteryear. If only those stones could talk. Oh, the stories they could tell.

Don't miss the museum. It's small, but interesting. Social distancing is enforced and you can only follow the path in one direction, so there is no backtracking.

ANCIENT CORINTH
Aug 2021
This was a shore excursion from our ship. Not one of the best ancient archeological sites in Greece, but interesting and should be combined with a trip to the nearby Corinth canal. The museum on site is worth spending some time in. The walking in all the areas is flat.

Great Walking Tour
Jul 2021
I highly recommend that you do the complete walk-around to see what has been excavated. You will also go into the great museum of treasures. This is a major site of one of the great cities of ancient Greece.

Interesting archeological site
Jul 2020
Ruins of one of the most important cities in ancient Greece. Ruins of the theaters, temples, gates and some buildings. Must see place for people interested in history. Entrance fee is 8 euros. There's also and archeological museum onsite.

Great piece of History
Apr 2021 • Family
This is a must see stop if you are interested in the history of the area. I only wanted to see the Bema stone and the Forum where the Apostle Paul spoke. However, the area is designed so that you have to walk in one direction beginning in the museum. Don’t rush, it’s worth the 8 Euro to see everything. By the time we saw the Bema, I was overwhelmed and felt as if I were standing on Holy Ground. Plan on at least an hour. It’s not wheelchair accessible.

Fascinating
Nov 2019
Maybe we were lucky in arriving before lunch time but there were not many people there. The atmosphere was overpowering and you realise that you are walking over many levels of history, some of the most ancient are still buried. The bus from Corinth takes you for a magical mystery tour along the coast before heading up to the ruins. Well worth it.

Ancient City With Amazing Temple Of Apollo
Sep 2020
This was an ideal place to visit on our last day in Greece before a flight home in the evening.
It was the busiest archaeological site that we visited but we expected this as it is close to Athens.
Social distancing was in place and you had to follow the designated routes.
You are given the option of visiting the museum in which case you enter the museum first. If you chose the "avoid museum" route you can't change your mind and enter the museum at a later stage so that is worth bearing in mind.
The site is easy to navigate and there are detailed signs explaining each area.It is dominated by the amazing Temple Of Apollo which is one of the oldest temples remaining in Greece.
We found it far more compact than other sites we had visited but still spent a couple of hours here including the museum.
Plenty of parking nearby and tourist shops and restaurants. Noticed that one of the restaurants had an upstairs terrace overlooking Ancient Corinth which would have been great for photos!

Ancient Corinth
Sep 2020
This is very much worth a visit. It was reasonably priced. Directions when in the site were not always that clear, ie it is important to go in the museum building first or you cannot return to it later. The site is really interesting and the historical information well illustrated in both Greek and English. Sadly the information on the links with Christianity and St Paul was impossible to read.

Interesting ruins and olive oil
Sep 2020
You HAVE to buy the olive oil they produce at Mini Market Karamanos Anastasios - we stopped by to get some water and picked up 2 cans - one for us and one to gift - and I just opened it today as we are back at home and it is a wonderful product! thanks for making the holiday feeling continue!
Very interesting place altogether but this really made it even better
