from Athens we drive southwards along the highway,
until we reach the Corinth Canal with its breathtaking
views (short stop). The town of ancient Corinth where St. Paul lived, worked and
preached for two years is 7km. from the canal. Back in the ancient times Corinth was the capital of Roman greece and one of the richest
cities and this is quite evident by its remains,
with the huge agora (market place) and Apollos
Temple (6th C.B.C). The ancient has been destroyed completely 3 times
in its past and was rebuilt from scratch. After exploring the museum and the site
we proceed with a brief stop at the site of the ancient
port of Kechreae where St. Paul disembarked for his return to Ephessus 52AD.
Return to Athens for lunch.
