The length of the Isthmus is about 6 kilometers and the narrowest point is where the Corinth Canal has been drilled (1880 to 1893).
Then you will the visit of Ancient Corinth. The famous and imposing archaic temple of Apollo, with monolithic Doric columns of whom seven are still standing prominently above the ruins of the ancient Agora. Additionally, you will visit Acrocorinth (the Acropolis of Corinth). Acrocorinth is a steep rock 575 meters height that dominates the plain of Corinth.
Acrocorinth is strategically located as from its location the ancient Korinthians could control the only entrance from mainland Greece to Peloponnese and all communication between Corinth and the Saronic Gulf. Acrocorinth or “Upper Corinth”, the acropolis of ancient Corinth, is a monolithic rock also overseeing the ancient city of Corinth. It provides a very impressive panoramic view of the area that will leave you charmed.
