Corinth Canal, Corinth
(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. Use our Corinth vacation generator to arrange your visit to Corinth Canal and other attractions in Corinth.

  • It's not exactly a tourist spot that makes you go there just to see, but how is halfway between Athens and various attractions of the region, it is worth the stop. In fact, the whole story behind the channel is more interesting than the work itself, so if it is without Guide, read about the construction.

  • Impossible to visit the Greece without stopping at the Corinth canal! Carved into the rock so that boats can cross! It's fabulous and amazing! A magical view! I highly recommend!
