Corinth is situated only about 1 1/2 hour away from Athens by vehicle and one follows a very pleasant coastal route along central Greece to reach the stanning Corinth Canal that was opened in 1893 and was an achievement of engineering at the time. Enjoy a nice coffee break overlooking the two seas of Greece that meet in the Corinth Canal, the narrowest Canal in the world! After Paul having spent a few weeks in Athens by ship he traveled to the very powerful city state of Corinth that controlled the eastern part of the Peloponnese. Very impressive are the remains of the temple of Apollo elevated on the highest point of the city and the Bema on which Paul stood and defended himself in the center of the ancient Agora. Inscriptions referring to the Synagogue that exited at the time and very unique poetry and statuary are to be seen in the small but interesting museum. The Acrocorith is the highest hill and once the unbeatable fortress that lays above Corinth. You are in the heart of the city that the unique letters towards the Corinthians refer to! Continue to the port of Cenchrea were Paul landed and is mentioned in the Acts. The remains of its buildings are partly on land and partly under the Aegean Sea and is also a very meaningful place to visit. These 5 hours can be extended with a lunch break and combined with visits to other parts of the Peloponnese close-by.
