A plethora of other exhibits will help you to better understand the challenges the Christians of the 1st century faced.

The Bema or Judgement Seat

Then, you will continue to Diolkos to learn about the ancient technology that made Corinth the 3rd most important city of the Roman Empire. 

Then you will take a break to rest while enjoying local dishes at a sea side restaurant.
