Some of the monuments you are going to visit:

The ancient city of Corinth

Corinth was one of the most powerful and important city-states of ancient Greece. Located at the narrow strip of land connecting the Peloponnese with the Greek mainland, its pivotal geographical location resulted in the economic blossom of Corinth. During the Roman invasion, the city was burned to the ground only to be re-founded by Julius Ceasar in 44 BC. In early Christian times, the city hosted the church of Corinth, a large group of Christians known by Apostle Paul's epistles. Just an hour away from Athens, Corinth with its vast history and impressive ruins is a must-see site during your visit to Greece.

  • I contacted GreekingMe for a tour in Athens. Christina (Customer Service Manager) guided me to 2 perfect tours. The first was Delhpi and the second was Corinth. Christina guided me to the right choice for a solo traveler. She is very friendly and cares about finding the right tour for me. My guide was Marisa who knows so much about history and has a great way of making it interesting and fun. I would highly recommend Greeking Me for Greek tours. They seem to really care about your experience and try very hard to make it enjoyable for you.
