My last full day, and it made sense to take yet another taxi - this time a 7 km ride inland to Ancient Sikyon. I only found out about this place earlier this year when I saw it on a tourist map of the Peloponnese; no-one had ever recommended it to me and I had no idea what I would find there.
The site is about 2km outside the village and sits, surrounded by ...
I left Methoni by bus this morning, reluctantly, as the sound of bells rang in my ears, and with guilty feelings. Guilty because this is the first year that I have not stayed for the St Nicholas day celebrations. My absence is not important, probably not even noticed, but a shame for me none the less.

Time to head inland to the local main road. We racked up ...

A bus runs between Corinth and Loutraki, via Isthmus. You can take a taxi, and previously I have, but this time I joined others at the bus stop and waited (about 20 minutes). If you're on a budget, the bus costs only €1.40 so can be worth the wait.
I know the route well enough to alight before central Corinth to reach my hotel.
