    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Corinth Canal, Isthmia, Corinth 201 00 Greece

    The Corinth Canal connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island.

    Duration: 15 minutes

    Stop At: Ancient Corinth (Archaia Korinthos), Ancient Korinthos village, Corinth Greece

    Ancient Corinth was inhabited in the Neolithic period (6500-3250 BC) but the big prosperity begins in the 8th century.

    Corinth was a city-state on the Isthmus (canal) of Corinth, the narrow stretch of land that joins the Peloponnese to the mainland of Greece, roughly halfway between Athens and Sparta.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Kastria Cave of the Lakes, Kastria Greece

    THE MYTHICAL 'CAVE OF THE LAKES' has something exclusively unique that does not exist in other well known caves. A rare creation of nature with mysterious galleries and strange stalactite formations.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Kalavrita, Kalavrita, Achaea Region, West Greece

    Kalavrita and the surrounding area are a resort for all seasons. This is your lunch place! We explore the center of the town on foot before or after lunch.

    Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

    Stop At: Odontotos Rack Railway, Diakopto 25003 Greece

    About 120 years ago Odontotos rack railway started from the seaside town of Diakopto parallel to the river and climbed to Kalavrita through bridges and tunnels.

    The little train incorporated so well to the natural environment that it seems that it had always been there. The way it was constructed did not put a strain on the ecosystem of the gorge. Using stone and wood from the area the technicians' work is so perfect that someone may think that the nature worked on its own.

    Duration: 2 hours

    Stop At: Acrocorinth, Corinth 200 07, Greece

    OPTIONAL: Acrocorinth, "Upper Corinth", the acropolis of ancient Corinth, is a monolithic rock overseeing the ancient city of Corinth and the Corinthian gulf. It is the most impressive of the acropolis of mainland Greece. With its secure water supply, Acrocorinth's fortress was repeatedly used as a last line of defense in southern Greece because it commanded the Isthmus of Corinth, repelling foes from entry by land into the Peloponnese peninsula.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Cooperative Winery of Nemea, 130 Papakonstantinou Av., Nemea 205 00 Greece

    OPTIONAL Wine tasting in the most famous winery area of Greece, Nemea.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Mega Spileo Monastery, Kato Zachlorou, Kalavrita Greece

    OPTIONAL or included/free alternative for visitors that have already done ancient Corinth: A cfii hanging monastery with amazing views of the gorge through which your train will pass.

    Duration: 35 minutes

    Thodoris (Theodore) was an amazing tour guide! He was very informative and super personable during our 10 hour trip. Would recommend you wake up early and are ready for pick up on time if not 10-15 minutes before required. This will add even more time to stops at Corinth and
