Anyone here ever been to Corinth? Do you think it would be overload? (Kids are older teens, who do like history/ruins.)
We did a half day tour of Corinth last summer. We did the ABD Greece tour and went to Corinth on our own before the actual tour started. Greece is loaded with ruins! Corinth is a small area and they have a small museum with interesting clay pots from thousands of years ago plus huge marble statues. You might pass by the Corinth Canal which is a narrow passage connecting the Saronic Gulf and Gulf of Corinth which was started by Nero. It was completed in the late 1800s though.

I think a trip to Corinth is more doable than Cape Sounion which is farther south. Traffic can delay your return to the ship. Piraeus is about an hour's drive to Athens, with traffic and Corinth is not far from Piraeus.
