In this half-day tour you are going to visit all places in Corinth where St.Paul saw during his journey there. We start by visiting the Corinth Canal: a canal that connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island. It is 6.4 kilometres (4 mi) in length and only 21.4 metres (70 ft) wide at its base, making it impassable for most modern ships.
Our tour continues and shortly we will reach the ancient city of Corinth (visit) where St. Paul lived and preached for 18 months. Back in the ancient times Corinth was amongst the wealthiest cities. Your are going to see the Temple of Apollo , The fountain of Pirene, the Market place, Theatre, the Odeum. Finally we will also visit Kechreai were St. Paul disembarked to Ephesus.
