Ancient Corinth was an important city-state of ancient Peloponnese. It controlled an area which equates to the eastern area of present-day Corinth and the northeastern area of present-day Argolidas. Ancient Corinth controlled the key position of the Isthmus and was the most important commercial centre of the ancient world, until it was threatened by Athens.
The focal points in Ancient Corinth are the archaic temple of Apollo, the road of Lecheou, Odeon, and the theatre. The site and the Archaeological Museum are open to the public.
It is worth taking a tour of the Doric temple of Apollo which stands in the center and to look for traces of the Roman Market, the baths and galleries and of course to admire the findings of the excavations which are on display at the museum (mosaics, ceramics, etc.)
The ruins of the archaeological site give a clear picture of the large residential development, while the well-preserved Doric temple of Apollo (550 BC) is an irrefutable testimony to the prosperity of the city since ancient times.
