Your first stop of the day is just an hour outside of Athens, when you reach the famous Corinth Canal. Although first conceived several thousand years ago, it was completed in the 19th century and is a natural photo stop.
After leaving the canal, the archaeological site of Ancient Corinth is just a short drive away. Here, you’ll learn about the significance of Corinth in ancient times, see the place where St. Paul preached, and visit important areas within the complex such as the Agora and Temple of Apollo. Our guide will help bring the site to life, mixing expert knowledge of the area with Greek myths and even episodes from the Percy Jackson books. They will also point out the imposing presence of Acrocorinth, which will be the next stop.

After a stop for lunch, the private tour then continues on to Epidaurus. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is an incredible complex, famous for its two main areas. The first is the theatre, which has been designed in such a way that people in the seats furthest away from the center of the stage can hear the tiniest whisper. The second area, is the Asklepios healing sanctuary, a place people would make a pilgrimage to from all over the known Greek world and beyond. Our guide will escort you around the site, explaining how it functioned and again linking it together with myths and the Percy Jackson stories.
