Athens and Corinthos - eight hours tour

Highlights of Athens, and the Corinthian Canal

 

Your tour starts from the Port of Piraeus ( the port of Athens) where your ship docks. Suggesting time  to start your private tour in Athens is 9 am to avoid the morning traffic.

 While driving from Piraeus to Athens, you will have a taste of the modern city and the way of life. Your first stop is the Acropolis. The entrance to the Acropolis was a monumental gateway called the Propylaea. To the south of the entrance is the tiny Temple of Athena Nike. A bronze statue of Athena, sculpted by Phidias, originally stood at its centre. At the centre of the Acropolis is the Parthenon or Temple of Athena Parthenos (Athena the Virgin). East of the entrance and north of the Parthenon is the temple known as the Erechtheum. South of the platform that forms the top of the Acropolis there are also the remains of an outdoor theatre called Theatre of Dionysus. A few hundred meters away, there is the now partially reconstructed Theatre of Herodes Atticus.

Most of the valuable ancient artifacts were situated in the Acropolis Museum, which resides on the south-east corner of the same rock. An operation to move them for the 400 meters distance to the New Acropolis Museum started on Sunday, 14 October 2007, and continued for six weeks.

After finishing your visit to these unique sites, your driving tour to the rest of Athens begins, on which you will see the Syntagma, Euzonous that are the traditional dressed Presidential best soldiers that are not allowed to speak or move until their swift is over. You will also get to see the Greek Parliament and the Olympic Stadium and then we will return you to your cruise ship.

Corinth in antiquity it was a city-state, on the Isthmus of Corinth, the narrow stretch of land that joins the Peloponnesus to the mainland of Greece. To the west of the isthmus lies the Gulf of Corinth, to the east lies the Saronic Gulf. Corinth is about 78 kilometers (48 mi) southwest of Athens. The isthmus, which was in ancient times traversed by hauling ships over the rocky ridge on sledges, is now cut by a canal.

Corinth is now the capital of the prefecture of Corinthia. The city is surrounded by the coastal townlets of (clockwise) Lechaio, Isthmia, Kechries, and the inland townies of Examilia and the archaeological site. Geophysically the city is likewise surrounded by the narrow coastal plain of Vocha, Corinthian Gulf, Corinth Canal, Saronic Gulf, Oneia mountains, and the monolithic rock of Acrocorinth where the medieval acropolis was built.

The Corinth Canal is a canal that connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnesian peninsula from the Greek mainland and therefore effectively making the former an island. The canal is 6.3 kilometer in length and was built between 1881 and 1893.

After we finish this wonderful and very interesting private tour we will return back to your ship in Piraeus or to your hotel in Athens.

Please note: In most of the tours in Greece, sport type shoes are recommended
