WHAT YOU VISIT

Ancient Corinth - Corinth, Greece's wealthiest city, once boasted a forum larger than Rome. Famed also for its wicked ways, the city was introduced to Christianity by St. Paul. You will see the remains of the paved, 25-foot-wide Lechaion Road and Doric Temple of Apollo.



Corinth Museum - The museum houses an impressive collection of antiquities unearthed from the ruins. Most of the antiquities, including superb mosaics, are Roman in origin. The original Greek city-state was destroyed by Rome in 154 B.C. and was rebuilt as a Roman colony.

Acropolis - The Acropolis dominates the Athenian landscape. Your guided walking tour begins with a walk up steep steps through the Propylaea, which extends 150-feet across the western face of the Acropolis . Adjacent to the entrance stands the Temple of Athena Nike (or Wingless Victory). Beyond the Propylaea, on the highest point of the Acropolis , stands the Parthenon,
which was dedicated to the Virgin Athena, the white pentelic marble temple was built 447 - 437 B.C. Beyond the Parthenon, lies the Erechteion, a temple honoring Athena and the sea god Poseidon. The graceful Porch of the Caryatids features columns of lovely maids supporting the roof of the temple.


PHOTO OPPORTUNITY

Corinth Canal - Like a deep gash in massive rock, the canal, 76-feet wide and 26-feet deep, divides the narrow causeway linking the Peloponese with the mainland. Engineers of the 19th century succeeded where others had failed.
