Your ancient Corinth tour departs from Athens and gives you a picturesque view of the scenic coast before reaching the Corinth Canal, which connects the Gulf of Corinth and the Saronic Gulf. From the canal, you'll take a short drive to ancient Corinth, where you'll have the opportunity to explore the ruins of the "Agora" marketplace as well as the Temples of Apollo and Aphrodite. One of the most notable sights you'll encounter on your ancient Corinth day tour is the Acrocorinth, the monolithic rock that oversees the former city. The site was heavily fortified throughout the ages and eventually became a fortress with its own secure water supply. The highest peak housed a temple to Aphrodite, the goddess of love. It's considered one of the most important Greek medieval castle sites. Don't leave Greece without taking part in a Corinth tour. This former city is filled with wondrous sights and a rich history that will leave you awestruck.
