Ancient Corinth

Approximately 5 km (3 miles) south of the modern capital lies Ancient Corinth, where you can visit its archaeological site to wander through the Agora (=ancient marketplace), see the Fountains of Glauke and Peirene, visit the Temple of Apollo, and hear the echoes of ancient drama and music at the Odeion.
