Ancient Corinth & Daphni Monastery Half day Tour from Athens

1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star 1 star 4.9 out of 5 based on 4 reviews

If you are interested in religious tours, this tour is the perfect choice for you. Exclusively with KEY tours you will have the opportunity to discover two must-see sights on this memorable day trip from Athens. You'll explore Ancient Corinth & Daphni’s Monastery.

After your morning pick up from your central located hotel, the bus will drive to Corinth via Iera Odos (the Sacred Way). It was so called because it was the route taken by a procession celebrating the Eleusinian Mysteries, were initiations held every year for the cult of Demeter and Persephone based at Eleusis in ancient Greece.

Our first stop will be the Monastery of Daphni, a 11th-century Byzantine monastery listed as an World Heritage site together with Monasteries Hosios Loukas and Nea Moni of Chios. The interior of the church is decorated with superb mosaics, a unique, fine example of the Classical idealism of Middle Byzantine art. The crowded scenes of the mosaics narrate scenes from the life of Christ and the Virgin.

Driving along the coastal road, we reach Corinth canal, which merges the Aegean with the Ionian Sea (short stop for photos of the breathtaking view). Shortly thereafter we reach the ancient town of Corinth, where St. Paul lived and preached for two years (Acts 18:1-18). Visit the ruins of the ancient city where Paul worked with Aquila and Priscilla, see the remains of the first century shops, the Agora where Paul’s trial by Gallio took place, the Fountain of Peirene, and one of the most outstanding monuments of pre –Roman period, the temple of Apollo.

This tour was amazing and very informative. Our guide Katia was well informed and fantastic n helpful. The tour was actually around 6 hours. We visited the monastery first than Corinth canal and ancient Corinth with a half hour break in between. Highly recommend this tour especially if you are a keen bible student. Tour of Corinth complements the bible book of Acts esp chaps 17 and 18...

We had an amazing time on this trip! Small, intimate group meant we got the most from our fantastic local guide. Great way to see a bit more of Greece, would highly recommend.
