Description of the shared tour to Ancient Corinth

corinth canal
Corinth Canal

The bus tour to Ancient Corinth starts early in the morning from Athens and will last for almost five hours. The driver will take you through one of the most spectacular routes, driving by the Saronic Gulf in a southwest direction, until we reach the Corinth Canal which connects the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea.

We will have a short stop there before continuing with the rest of the tour. The Corinth Canal now cuts the Isthmus, which is a land bridge connecting the Peloponnese Peninsula with the Greek mainland. Since 1893 the canal has been running through the Isthmus which is  6.3 km wide.

After taking some nice pictures of the picturesque Corinth Canal, our driver will drive us further on towards the Ancient town of Corinth, where St. Paul lived and preached for two years. It is here where St Paul wrote one of his famous letters, to Corinthians, after a series of events that stigmatized his stay in the city and his effort to promote the new religion.
