4.2/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web
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.

  • החיבור בין המפרץ הסרוני למפרץ קורינתוס נהגה לראשונה ע"י הפרסים.המלאנה הושלמה בסוף המאה ה-. תשע עשרה.מקום ייחודי ומרתק.התעלה הצרה היא מחזה יוצא דופן ומעורר מבטים משתאים. 
  • The Canal view really is spectacular, I also recommend crossing the small bridge, the far East, which is lowered underwater for the passage of boats.
