Ancient Corinth is where the apostle Paul spent some time.  He is credited with writing two books of the new testament, Corinthians I and II.  As an upscale travel location at the time it was said that not everyone can visit Corinth.  Some part of this understanding may have been the abundance of temple prostitutes in the city.  As an ex-Roman soldier, Paul may well have known all there was to know about Corinth.  It is also reported that he wrote a third book, which was not acceptable to Biblical scholars.  Interesting!!

After visiting the ruins, our busload of tourists mounted a rooftop restaurant and ate lunch with a great view overlooking the site.  This may be the best way to see old ruins.
