Description

Venture South of Athens to discover highlights of the Peloponnese. Cross the Corinth Canal to leave mainland Greece and explore the Ancient Corinth, antiquity’s most powerful commercial crossroads. Starting in Ancient Corinth, the wealthiest city in all the ancient world, a leader amongst the powerful Greek city-states, built at the foothills of the rocky hill of Acrocorinth, discernible from afar, a striking lookout against potential enemies coming by land or sea, then on to Temple of Hera and Blue Lake to pay tribute to god Poseidon and the goddess Hera. Your first stop is at the Corinth canal for 15 minutes where you can take photos and have a refreshing drink. The next stop is at Akrokorinthos for 1 hour before you visit Ancient Corinth and the Archaeological Museum of Corinth for about 3 hours. Then, stop at Heraion (Sanctuary of Hera) in Perachora for about 1 hour and finally, visit the Blue Lake (Vouliagmeni Lake) for 30 minutes.
