Archeologists have been investigating the site at Corinth for a couple of hundred years and they continue to uncover new relicts each year (the day before we visited an un-explored burial site had been identified.) The site features the remains of a couple of major temples, an agora, and of the base of a fountain (listen carefully water is still rushing down from the mountain and passing through the base of the fountain.) There is a very nice archeological museum included in the tour. I collect glass and I was surprised by a 1500 year old box-molded glass pitcher on display. The surrounding area has many small shops. The admission fee is 6 euros a person. The drive to Corinth from Athens takes you out across the Greek countryside. I would recommend taking the subway or a train out to the outer suburbs, picking up a rental car and making a day trip of this (get a good map before you leave) or taking a bus tour that will take you out and back with probably a stop or two along the way. Corinth is an easy day trip from Athens.

Directions: Arrange a bus tour or rent a car and get a good map
