One of the oldest towns in Peloponnese, Corinth is a port city with a population of about 58,000. The area is thought to have been inhabited since at least 6000BC. In the main part of the city, "new" Corinth, there is little left to remind you of the city's rich history. Much of this area has been destroyed by earthquake. Most of the interesting archeological sights are found in "old" Corinth, a short distance away.

Aegina

The island of Aegina is one of the Saronic Islands of Greece located in the Saronic Gulf. It is named for the mother of the hero Aeacus, who was born on the island and eventually became its king. The legend goes that the god Zeus swept Aegina away from her husband to the island where her son was born—hence the island's name became Aegina.
