After you have passed the Isthmus having as your
destination the tour in the lovely Peloponnese, the first
prefecture you are going to meet is Corinthia. Capital of
the prefecture is Corinthos. A city with a deeply historical
legacy, which will offer you unforgettable vacations. Likewise,
they are saved ruins from the theatre and the Conservatory. After
you’ve passed the South Stoa, you’ll see the Asclepio (where the
patients stay overnight) and Acrokorinthos.
Soon after the ancient town you will meet the Acropolis of
Corinthos, one of the greatest and oldest monuments of the
entire Peloponnese where the combination of frankish, byzantine
and venetian order testifies its possessors. Certainly, at Corinthos
you’ll visit the Archaeological museum where you’ll see objects
that were found in the excavations of ancient Corinthos as also
patients’ offerings from Asclepio and the Ecclesiastical museum,
which have operated since 1973, and it’s got icons, handwritten
gospels and other ecclesiastical objects.
Corinthos has a vivid life, day and night because of the many shops,
restaurants, cafeterias and night clubs. If you are thatre-goer,
each year from September till October, it is organized a Theatre
Festival in which takes troupes from Balkans and the Pan-Hellenic
festival of amateurish troupes.
In Corinthos you have to taste the delicious milk-pie. At Corinthos
you’ll have the chance for excursions to the rest cities and villages
of the prefecture by buses that start from the city centre. In the
entire Corinthia you will find rooms-to-let and hotels. The villages
are connected with buses but you can also hire motor scooters and
cars. The restaurants and the taverns don’t miss and in the coastal
villages there are plenty of fresh fishes.
