Ancient Corinth Favorites: 7 reviews and 10 photos
Favorite thing: I wanted to go somewhere in May where I would see poppies! - May is the best month for poppies in a number of European countries and Ive been pleasantly satisfied getting poppy and springflower photos during driving trips during May elsewhere - and this time I was weighing up between Italy, where Id already had 3 recent winter visits, or Greece, for my first ever visit, or Poland for May being its well regarded month of blossoms.
May was a lovely, or even wonderful month for Corinth!! From leaving the airport at Athens I had enjoyed road sides in yellow flower splendour or here and there pink stretches, then around the Corinth Canal an assortment of springflowers blooming in an assortment of colours, including red poppies.
ARound the site of Ancient Corinth there were more and more patches of bright red poppies, yellow and purple and white flowers out in the fields - and then up at Ancient Corinth the hills were alive with the massive blaze of.... poppies!
The temperatures were ranging from a little too cool later in the nights to pleasant to getting close to almost too hot - but not quite - sunscreen and hat were definitely needed - so any closer into the summer months itd probably be uncomfortable - overall May was excellent!
Fondest memory: red poppies and flowers in amongst the ruins that were already exciting to be able to visit!
