Corinth, Greece, located 53 mi/86 km west of Athens, consists of both an old and a new town 4 mi/7 km apart. It is worth a half-day visit. The old town, where St. Paul once preached, is by far the more interesting of the two. Be sure to stroll its lively waterfront area, take in the view from the Acrocorinth hilltop and see the museum at the site of ancient Corinth.
Also visit the Temple of Apollo (sixth century BC), the Agora (Forum), the remains of the Long Wall and other ruins. Just before arriving at ancient Corinth, take a look from the bridge at the freighters below as they squeeze through the 82-ft-/25-m-wide Corinth Canal.
