The ancient city of Corinth was one of the largest and most important cities of ancient Greece and rivalled Athens in areas such as politics, art, philosophy, architecture, wealth and opulence (an ancient proverb states that “it is not for everybody to sail to Corinth”).
For Christians, Corinth is known from the two letters of Saint Paul, First Corinthians and Second Corinthians in the New Testament.
On our way to Corinth we visit the canal of Corinth which marks the border between Attica and the Peloponnese.
The canal is an old project, started in antiquity but completed only in modern times (1893).
We make a first stop to admire the view and take beautiful pictures from the top of the canal, then we take a mini-cruise inside it, and then we visit the site of ancient Corinth.
