We had a driver from Athens for the day and stopped in Corinth to see the major sites. This was a great surprise as we had no idea what to expect. You should plan on spending 2-3 hours here. We were on our way to Epidaurus and Mycenae so didn't spend as much time as we would like here. This... More

No transport, nothing. Or rent a car or ask for a ride, try to visit till 4 pm, after it closed. Can be reached till Ancient Corinth bus stop by bus from the Corinth bus station (don't mix there are few in the centre, better ask locals for navigation), and after or by foot till the top of the mountain...

In Greece it was the norm to build castles on the tops of mountains. The reasoning is that they were supposed to be easier to defend. As such a water source was also needed so that one could not be 'waited out' until resources dried up. This site, like others had such a water source. It seems amazing when one... More

If you are in the area of Corinth, Greece you must see this fortress. Hire a taxi from the town center and for 15E the taxi will take you to the base of the fortress. From there take a slow journey up to all 3 levels of the fortress--each affording their own special views. Once you have reached the top... More

Rising sheer above the lower town...the medieval fortress is situated on an imposing mass of rock, blink and it can easily be missed.

An incredible site with breathtaking views. It is certainly worth the extra 10 minute drive up the hill from the archaeological site of Corinth. The fortress is impressive.

You need to wear good footwear or walking shoes for this place.. The climb is steep but the views are worth it. There are information boards dotted throughout so you can visualise and understand the make up if the place. Allow 4 hours if you want to get to the very top and back down and take water...

Worth trying more than once to find in fact it took 2 tries as it did not locate properly on our gps. Lots of ruins more than we expected from such a hard to find historic site.

I had read a little bit about Acrocorinth before going but it did not prepare me for the magnificent sight that I was about to see! Wow! It is very near the Ancient Corinth, which is at the foot of the hill, about 10-15 minutes by car, and definitely worth a visit. It is about 1 hour and 20 minutes... More

The Acrokorith os the castle of Corinth. When you reach the top of Acrokorinth there is a great view. In order to reach the top you must have running shoes or for climbing because of the slippery pavement which is made of marble. You must visit it.
