Corinth is the first prefecture after Athens located towards south. Only about 80 km away is its capital Corinth, a city by the sea of about 30,000 inhabitants.
Always present in history, from the wars that participated with the Hellenes, to the epistles of the New Testament, it offers several sites of archaeological and historical interest. At the same time, Corinth is a rich land where a variety of agricultural products are produced with their famous olive trees / oils, their wines and especially the “Currants”. A product recognized worldwide for its high quality.
If you have time, do not miss the opportunity to pay a visit to one of the wineries in the area, where some of the best Greek wines come with Domination of Origin.
The visitor has a variety of archaeological sites that can be visited, among which the most important are the “Ancient Corinth” and the “Acrocorinth” castle that was the Acropolis of the area.
Even so, the most famous attraction in the whole region is the “Channel of Corinth” a channel that connects the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea. The idea of this project was going around several engineers since antiquity. But it only became reality in 1893 with the cooperation of several countries. With 6.3 km long, 21 m wide, more than 80 meters high and only 8 deep in its waters, it is a work that impresses and cuts your breath once you are on your bridge.
With a little luck you can contemplate and capture a beautiful photo of one of the 11.000 boats that cross it every year.
For the brave, the channel is the most famous place to practice bungee jumping in Greece. A truly unique place to practice this extreme sport worldwide.
Finally, Corinth like most areas of Greece offers a wide range of beaches, both organized and unspoiled beaches where the pines touch the sand.
Do not miss the opportunity to bathe in “the lake / sea of Vouliagmeni” and visit “Heraion of Perachora” a temple dedicated to the goddess Hera that is next to the sea.
