Description of our half day Corinth tour
Departing with Athens taxi tours from Athens, we drive westwards along the scenic view of the Greek countryside, enjoying one of the most picturesque tours in Greece.
Once we reach the Corinth Canal we will make a short stop there to take in the breathtaking view of the Isthmus and shortly thereafter we will head for the ancient city of Corinth .
This is the place where St. Paul the Apostle lived and preached for two years, where Themistocles forced the Corinthians to use their triremes against the fleet of the Persian King Xerxes, as well as a place of significant importance in the development of ancient Greek sculpture.
In antiquity, Corinth was amongst the richest of the city states and this is quite evident by its remains, including the huge ancient agora (ancient market place) and Apollo’s Temple, dated to the 6th C.B.C.
The ancient port of Corinth
We will make a brief stop at the site of the ancient port of Kenchreai, where St. Paul made a stop in his second missionary journey.
Afterwards we will return to Athens in time for lunch where our private tour will end.
You can customize this private tour at any time, either on the way together with your private chauffeur or in advance by contacting our Athens Taxi Tours team. It is highly recommended for cruise travelers visiting Athens just for a day to enjoy one of the most interesting Greece tours.
