Explore Corinth's surroundings by going to Mycenae (Archaeological Site Mycenae, Citadel and Treasury of Atreus, & more).

Amsterdam, Holland to Corinth is an approximately 8.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Corinth. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Amsterdam in May; daily highs in Corinth reach 31°C and lows reach 18°C.
