First off, the archaeological site of Nemea. This is a place of significant historic value, as it hosted the Nemean Games every two years. Most of you will remember Hercules slaying the Nemean lion.

The entire archaeological site is located on the foot of the Arcadian mountains, in an idyllic place.

Malagavi Lighthouse is our last stop, although we know that it is hard to select just three attractions in a place like Corinth. Above the ancient Heraion (the Temple dedicated to Hera), you will find one of the oldest lighthouses in Greece. It dates back to 1897 and the view from up there is amazing. Infinite blue and embroidered coasts, lush greenery and clear skies!
