The route of the ancient traveler Pausanias through the Corinthian Forum at the 2nd century A.D., together with the results of the excavations conducted on the site by the American Archaeological School of Athens, give the modern visitor an idea about the main roadways of the ancient city from the classical to the roman period. At the same time, the modern visitor has the opportunity to see the remains of two main roads of the Roman city, the Lechaion and the Kenchraie road.

The characteristic of the roman urban planning are the large roads (avenues). They cross the city, intersect in its center and end in the gates: the so called "cardo", from north to south and the "decumanus", from east to west. At the intersection of the main roads was situated the Agora, "forum", i.e. the main social and religious center, an open space, bordered by colonnades and monumental buildings.
