In the days of St. Paul, Ancient Corinth possessed a forum larger than Rome, with temples, theatres, baths, shops and basilicas. See the remains of the beautifully-paved Lechaion Road and 6th century BC Doric Temple of Apollo. A visit will be made to the Museum, which houses some of the finds from the site.The Corinth Canal never fails to impress. Four miles long, 75 feet wide and 26 feet deep, it represents a great feat of engineering. An unforgettable sight, the Canal separates the narrow causeway joining the Peloponesse to the mainland.The highlight will be the Canal transit. Boarding a boat, you will travel serenely through the Canal, with the walls rising sheer on either side. Depending on Canal traffic, the trip through the Canal may be made twice, and if that is the case you will return to the original starting point. There may be a short wait whilst queuing to enter the Canal.A buffet luncheon including wine and coffee is included. There will be a short time available for shopping in the area outside the site of the Ancient Corinth.
