Discover Corinth - the new and the ancient!

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

The region of Corinth is the first step on a tour when you come to Athens. It is especially interesting for lovers of archaeology. The Corinth Canal, 50 miles west of Athens, is impressive. Only 82 ft wide for a length of 307 miles, it transformed the Peloponnese, at the time of its completion in 1893, into a huge island, the first in Greece.

To see

The main areas of ancient and Byzantine Greece: Corinth and its canal, Mycenae and the city of Agamemnon are about 25 miles south of Corinth.

To do

Argolis is within a very short walk. In a day you can visit some of the wonders of this region such as the theatre of Epidaurus (18 miles from Nafplion) and its completely unique natural acoustics, Tiryns and its fortress, the old town of Nafplion (just 3 miles from Tiryns ), which overlooks the sea on one side and land on the other.

pros

  • +  Its canal, a historical wonder
  • +  The archaeological richness

cons

  • -  The merchants of souvenirs are omnipresent at the most visited sites
  • -  The highway runs too close to the canal. It's a pity
  • -  The beaches

To think about

Athens is not far... go and have a look!

To avoid

The working hours for visiting sites can prove difficult, come early in the morning, so as to enjoy yourself better without the masses of other tourists.

To try

Fish, fried foods, Greek salad and tsatsiki; Greece offers many delicious dishes.

To bring back

Jewellery and crafts are good choices for gifts to bring back.
