Isthmus of Corinth – Ancient Corinth – Ancient Olympia
Athens, early in the morning. We are picking you up from your hotel or apartment and driving to Peloponnese, where we are going to visit all the above magnificent places and meet the Ancient Greek History and Legends!
After a short journey, we are leaving Attica and reaching our first station, Isthmus of Corinth. This admirable structure, whose history starts 2.500 years before, when the tyrant Periandros was the first to begin this project, connects Peloponnese with Greek Mainland, while the Corinth canal connects the two gulfs, Saronic and Corinth, that is Aegean with Ionian Sea.
Our next station is Ancient Corinth, the city that, according to Mythology, was earned by Sun, when He and Poseidon had a dispute, in which finally Poseidon kept Isthmus. Corinth was one of the most important ancient cities, while it performed a crucial role during the Peloponnesian War. Local excavations have revealed a treasure of remains and objects, which you may admire either in the archaeological museum or outdoors.
Plenty of sensations and feelings, we are leaving Ancient Corinth to visit our tour’s last destination, Ancient Olympia. You are going to have the great honor to stand on the ground of the Olympic Games stadium, while the environment’s vibes will motivate your emotion and offer you a time-travel ticket, to meet Phidias sculpting in his workshop, the priestesses of Zeus’ and Hera’s Temples and so many other precious views and experiences.
Having completed our scheduled trip, we are leaving Peloponnese, having kept deeply in our hearts all this unforgettable experience and driving back to Athens.
