The city offers its visitors a wide range of fascinating museums, our favourite of which is the Museum of Ancient Corinth, the oldest museum in Greece and the only one of its kind in Europe. There is no better way to visit the ancient city of Corinth than through its museums and galleries.
Here you can find exhibits brought to light by archaeologists, which represent the heritage of the culture of ancient Corinth. There is a section on grave robbers and antique smugglers, including a large collection of artifacts from the ancient city of Corinth, as well as artifacts from other parts of Greece and Europe.
On the other floors there are several galleries that summarize what is known about ancient Greece, as it is found in the ancient city of Corinth and in other parts of Greece and Europe. These are exhibited in six galleries that give an overview of the history of ancient Corinth and its cultural heritage, but also of modern Greece.

The city is famous for its attractions such as the Corinthian Temple, the Greek Temple of Corinth and the Great Temple. Corinth was allied with Athens and other cities of Sparta during the Persian Wars, when the Athenians imposed their sovereignty over Greece. The Persians gathered their fleet in the bay of Elefsis, from which the Greek trier had withdrawn. This led to the beginning of the "Corinthian War," which was interrupted by the invasion of Greece by Philip II of Macedonia and his army.
The two remaining bastions are named after the French philhellene Robert, who died in the battle on the Acropolis of Athens. There are nine in total in the Citadel of Mycenae, but I am the only one I have seen in Greece this week. At the end of this gallery there is a tombstone of a legionary and the tomb is buried with a bronze cross, of which there were nine in total.
This is the monolithic rock that oversees the ancient city of Corinth, and it was founded as a continuation of ancient Corinth. The city on the Corinthian isthmus was the gateway to the Peloponnese and therefore an important trading city in ancient Greece and was once the center of early Christianity.
If you are in Athens and you do not feel like going to Corinth alone, you can book a day trip through ancient Corinth. We had an excellent time and we treated ourselves to this as a private trip from Athens to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable exploration of the history of Greece. We stopped in Corinth for a few hours at the Corinthian Archaeological Museum and in the ancient city of Corinth and had a great time.
