Overview

A truly unique tour bringing together the history of Greece and roots of Christianity in this country, this visit to the ancient city of Corinth follows the trail of time the apostle Paul spent here. Starting with a stop at the picturesque Corinth Canal which connects the Aegean and the Ionian Seas, we will head to the old town of Corinth where St. Paul lived and preached for two years, working with Aquila and Priscilla. Take a stroll through the stunning ruins of first century shops, the majestic Temple of Apollo, the inspirational Fountain of Peirene, the splendid Agora where trial of Paul took place, and relive the enthralling days of the past as our guide regales you with detailed anecdotes of the times. Our final haunt at this site is the harbour of Kenchreai from where St. Paul embarked on his journey to Ephesus.

We will then drive back to city to visit more places connected with St. Paul’s life. We will drive past the panoramic heart of the city where you can see the National Garden, the Hadrian’s Arch, St. Paul’s Church, the Parliament, the Catholic Cathedral, and the Athens Trilogy. A short stop at the historic Panathenaic Stadium, the host to the first modern day Olympics in 1896, awaits you as well.

Following the footsteps of the Apostle, we will arrive at the iconic Acropolis where you can indulge in an enriching exploratory walk through the Parthenon, the Propylaea, and the Temple of Athena Nike. you will finally visit Mars Hills, the site where Paul delivered his fabled sermon. Our final tryst with St. Paul’s life takes place at the scenic cobbled streets of Plaka, breathtakingly shadowed by the towering Acropolis and the Ancient Agora, where he met with his disciples regularly. A soul stirring day to say the least, this tour trailing St. Paul’s life is a guaranteed unforgettable experience in Athens!
