With all that there is to see in the Peloponnese, few people stop to visit the archaeological site of ancient Corinth. Even us, who passed alongside hundreds of times, we had never gave it a chance… Not only it is worth to be seen, but it is also a great overnight stop for those who are going to or coming back from Athens.
Out of the beaten tracks, but a short distance from the road connecting Corinth to the south of the Peloponnese, Nemea is one of the capitals of wine production in Greece. Some manufacturers offer in their facilities the chance to taste and of course to buy their wines at very attractive prices. There is an icing on the cake too: the archaeological site with a temple in excellent condition.
Yes, there is also a castle in Corinth! In reality, what you see above are the fortification walls, as were rebuilt by the Venetians in place of those of the ancient Acropolis of Corinth (Acrocorinth) and it is only by going there that you can understand why they chose to build it up there…
