  • From Athens: Ancient Corinth & Daphni Monastery

    1. From Athens: Ancient Corinth & Daphni Monastery

    After your morning pick-up from your centrally located hotel, the bus will drive to Corinth via Iera Odos (the Sacred Way). It was so-called this because it was the route taken by a procession celebrating the Eleusinian Mysteries. Initiations were held every year for the cult of Demeter and Persephone based in Eleusis. Your first stop will be the Monastery of Daphni, a 11th-century Byzantine monastery listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site together with the Monasteries Hosios Loukas and Nea Moni of Chios.

The crowded scenes of the mosaics narrate scenes from the life of Christ and the Virgin.  Driving along the coastal road, reach Corinth Canal, which merges the Aegean with the Ionian Sea (short stop for photos of the breathtaking view).

    Tas is the absolute best. He majored in Syrian, Egyptian, and Greek History so he is definitely the go to guy for tours and he explained so much about ancient Corinth to us. Also takes you to a great local tavern in Corinth which had great food and a view you'll never get anywhere else. He also takes pics for you and then sends them to you after the tour. Tas is also just a great guy in general. We woke up late for our tour and he shifted it for us to accommodate our late start, he let us take our time on the spots, and when I lost my phone, he single-handedly went back to the place I dropped it to get it for me so that I could enjoy walking through ancient Corinth. Can't recommend this tour enough! Definitely book with them
