Corinth Canal, Corinth

(4.3/5 based on 1,000+ 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 a must-see when you go to Athens by road or going to Athens. Or if you visit the Antique in Corinth. Everything is done to receive the tourist (even), such as bars and shops and also to eat the best souvlaki (Pork Skewers marinated with the lemons and herbs). The view is breathtaking, and if you're lucky, you'll see a boat pass.

  • Place that you need to see. Amazing, beautiful, unique. Both ends of the interesting, both have dropped into the water bridges when flow through vessels, bridges are for traffic and pedestrian, very interesting. Close to bars, shops, the Corinth big market. See the streaming the ship channel is seven years of happiness as the gołosi legend. I recommend,

  • המעבר מעל תעלת קורינתוס מרשים. התעליה עמוקה מאוד, קירות זקופים משני עבריה, והמחשבה על חציבתה מעוררת השתאות. כדאי לעצור והתבונן למטה, משני עברי הכביש.  more »
