Corinth Canal, Corinth

4.3
#1 of 49 in Parks in Peloponnese
Pass through Corinth Canal, one of the world's tightest navigable waterways, which separates the Peloponnese Peninsula from the rest of the Greek mainland. Before the canal's completion at the end of the 19th century, ships sailing between the Adriatic and the Aegean had to circumnavigate the peninsula, adding nearly 320 km (180 mi) to their journey. The waterway is just over 6 km (4 mi) long and only 21 m (70 ft) wide. Much too narrow to accommodate modern ocean freighters, this channel now mostly services tourist ships, attracting curious visitors from around the world.

    If you're in the area you should not decide go along. The channel is very narrow. Nice to have the boats to see through it. Good for a short visit.

    While in the Corinth area this location is a must visit. A true Master piece that was created by man. If you are lucky you may get to see a ship cruise through the channel  more »
