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.
Proclaimed to be the center of the world by the ancient Greeks, Delphi and its ruins exist on the sloping mountainside of Mount Parnassus. With breathtaking views just over the cliffs, one cannot help but marvel at the sweeping valley dotted with olive trees all the way down to the sea. The beauty of it all truly brings one to a place where they understand why Delphi was marked as the center of the earth.
