What you can expect

The city-state of Corinth played a pivotal role in classical Greece, and a ride to the remains of its ancient domain gives you a look back at this legendary era. Join a personal guide for a chance to get to know the secrets of this hub of politics and trade in the classical world.

When you meet your guide, chat about the sights you can see on your journey as you ride west of Athens and onto the Peloponnese peninsula. Located just over the modern city, the Corinth archaeological site looks over the narrow strip of land that links the Peloponnese back to the mainland, a strategic location that helped make the city a wealthy and influential power.

Along the way, you can learn the countless legends that revolve around the site, like the story of Sisyphus and the Olympic-like games held in the devotional area of Isthmia. Although earthquakes destroyed much of the city, you can still see the marble columns of the Temple of Apollo standing amid extensive ruins that testify to its prosperity.

Your journey across the Isthmus of Corinth also gives you a look at the Corinth Canal, which connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Aegean Sea by cutting through 4 miles (6.4 km) of solid rock. Learn the canal's incredible history, dating from plans made back in the 7th century BC to its final completion in 1893, before your journey comes to an end.
