In this tour, Athens Taxi Travel will take you in all places where Apostle Paul visited during his journey to Athens and Corinth before disembarking to Epheus.
Our tour starts by visiting the place where St.Paul first came to Athens. Then we will visit the Acropolis, the Parthenon,the Erechtheion, Mars Hill (Areopagus). Our tour continues by visiting the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, the Temple of Nike, the tomb of the Unknown Soldier, Parliament House, Presidential Palace, Panathenian Stadium, Temple of Olympian Zeus, the Plaka, the Ancient agora, the Roman agora, Academy, the University and the National Library.
Then we will drive you to the Corinth Canal: a canal that 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. It is 6.4 kilometres (4 mi) in length and only 21.4 metres (70 ft) wide at its base, making it impassable for most modern ships. Our tour continues and shortly we will reach the ancient city of Corinth (visit) where St. Paul lived and preached for 18 months. Back in the ancient times Corinth was amongst the wealthiest cities. Your are going to see the Temple of Apollo , The fountain of Pirene, the Market place, Theatre, the Odeum. We will also visit Kechreai were St. Paul disembarked to Ephesus.
In Solomos, just three kilometres away from the city of Ancient Corinth and its evocative castle of Akrokorinthos there is a museum about wine and greek tradition, called Linos Museum.
The museum is situated in an old traditional winery. For decades the region has been famous for its vineyards. In the past wine was produced traditionally to meet the family needs. A small quantity of white wine is still produced in the winery for friends and visitors to taste.
