Experience the wonder of the Miraculous Corinth 5-Hour Christian Tour, departing from Athens at the crack of dawn. Our skilled driver will guide you along the breathtaking coastal route that winds its way to the Corinth Canal and Ancient Corinth. Following a picturesque hour-long journey, you’ll arrive at the renowned Isthmus, a vital hub in Greece and the Mediterranean as it links the mainland with the Peloponnese Peninsula.

The Isthmus boasts a width of 6.5 km, with the iconic Corinth Canal strategically placed at its narrowest point. As you soak in the stunning scenery, seize the opportunity to capture some unforgettable snapshots. Then, continue your journey to Ancient Corinth, a prominent city-state in ancient times.

Below the awe-inspiring Acrocorinth fortress, the bustling city sprawled out, strategically positioned to control passing ships and trade goods between Italy and Greece.

Join us on an enriching journey through the ancient city of Corinth, where St Paul once resided and shared the teachings of the new Christian faith for two transformative years. As we explore the city, we’ll discover its strong ties to St Paul, who resided amongst the community alongside the Jewish couple Akillas and Priscilla. Witness the roots of Christianity as St Paul established both a church in Corinth and one in ancient Kechreai.

After a two-year stay in Corinth, Apostle Paul said farewell to the flourishing city and journeyed on to Ephesus (Acts 18:18). But even in his absence, Paul’s teachings laid the foundation for a vibrant church in Corinth, one that would face challenges due to the prevailing culture. In an effort to address these issues, Paul wrote several letters, pouring his heart out to the Corinthians. Despite the distance, Paul’s love for the church never wavered. Six years later, during his third missionary journey, Paul visited Corinth once again, bringing his powerful message to the community.

In the agora, the bustling marketplace of Corinth, Paul stood trial before Gallio (Acts 18:12-17). This significant event serves as a reminder of the complex history of this city and its ties to Christianity. It was also from Corinth that Paul wrote his letters to the Thessalonians, filled with wisdom and guidance for the growing church.

As you explore the ancient city of ancient Corinth, you’ll also have the opportunity to explore the magnificent Cathedral of St Paul.
