We visited in April and arrived at Acrocorinth at 2:00 pm, but were alarmed to find they closed at 3:00--and you have to physically be back out of the front gate at closing. So we made a rapid trek up to what was almost the top--the Frankish keep. The initial path to the front entrance gate and beyond is comprised... More

The climb up the steep slope requires maneuvering over rocks that are sometimes slippery so a set of hiking poles with metal points can help you navigate. The structure is magnificent and worth the climb.

The castle/fort dominates a mountain above the ancient city of Corinth. The structure is very imposing. This attraction is not for those with limited mobility or other medical limitations. The access is up a steep incline and the interior spaces are spread over multiple elevations. Wear a hat and sunscreen and bring water.

You do need non-slip shoes and water even in April but the quite strenuous climb is worth it. This isn't a commercial tourist site but one that gives a real feel of the history and superb views around as well and hence well worth the effort. It is also a large site so does not easily get overwhelmed at busy... More

I never tire of visiting the Acrocorinth. It is a steep drive to the site but the views in all directions are magnificent. The stones on the initial pathways are well used and worn, polished smooth, and rather dangerous, especially on the way down. After climbing to the main gate, which is protected by a crescent of massive towers, the... More

We went there in july, and to our surprise we were the only ones there. It was also partly cloudy when we started to walk, so we obviously hit the jackpot. Take some time to walk around and take in the beautiful views on top of old walls. In my opinion this is the best place to visit in this... More

Amazing viiews and ancient ruins. Wear good shoes and bring water with you because the small concession area may be closed. The trails are not marked with any signage and very little to guide you as to what you are seeing. Don't miss it if you come to Korinthia! Free to enter. Closes at 3:00 pm.

I was able to enjoy Bible history in the ruins. To be able to see the wonders of the ancient world in a simple walk thru Corinth ruins. I highly recommend you take the walk.
