I take my visitors here all the time. It is a superb site for lots of ruins and has a very atmospheric feel. Yes much of the site is in ruins after many earthquakes over the centuries but is is big and has much to value. I think better than Acropolis and quiter too. My really favourite part is the bath area. The water still runs through it at some depth, you can hear it. You can imagine the collective bathing and the exchange of gossip at the central pool. Take plenty of water with you though as the is not much shade.
The town itself is small with good value tavernas and many gift shops.
Worth a visit for the food alone. (See other reviews)

The site was inhabited from the Neolithic to Byzantine times founded important colonies like Corfu and Syracuse.The Doric temple of Apollo, the theatre and the central agora dominate the archaeological site.The agora preserves the speakers platform where the Apostle Paul preached to the Corinthians. The MUSEUM is a must visit within the site, houses rich excavation finds from all periods, including finds from the Prehistoric settlements, Roman statues, mosaic floors and plenty more from the Asklepieion.

Old Corinth or ancient Corinth is a great place to visit it is about 1 hour and 15 minutes from Athens. If you have time and you are interested in ancient civilizations this is a must visit. Situated high in elevation the small town has restaurants and souvenir shops. I wasn't sure I wanted to visit this location but I am glad I did. Not as busy as the Acropolis but just as interesting.

Both the ruins and the museum were very worthwhile. Lots of interpretive panels with good details and explanations in English.

Surprisingly little emphasis on the Christian aspect of the site, although there is an inscription on the Rostra regarding St. Paul. You'll want a good guidebook to fill in the rest of the details for you. One of the only Christian artifacts in the museum, an inscription, was away on loan to another museum when we visited.

Also, make a point of visiting the nearby churches: the Church of the Apostle Paul has a wonderful modern triptych mosaic mural out front while the Church of the Panagia has a stone tablet with the words of 1 Corinthians 13 inscribed in Greek, English, French, and Russian.
