The four-mile-long Corinth Canal through Greece connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. Only 70 ft. wide at sea level, the canal expands to a width of 81 ft. at the top of its 300 ft. high rock walls. Only ships with a width of 58 ft. or less can transit the Corinth Canal. Although the canal saves the 430-mile journey around the Peloponnese, it is too narrow for modern ocean freighters. Corinth Canal, a tidal waterway across the Isthmus of Corinth in Greece, joined the Gulf of Corinth in the northwest with the Saronic Gulf in the southeast. The isthmus was first crossed by boats in 600 BC when Periander built a ship railway, small boats being carried on wheeled cradles running in grooves. This system may have been used until the 9th century. Work on the canal began in 1882, and it opened in 1893. The canal is 6.3 km (3.9 miles) long and has a water depth of 8 meters (26 feet); its width varies from a minimum of 21 meters (69 feet) at the bottom to a maximum of 25 meters (82 feet) at the water’s surface. The canal has brought great economic benefits to the ports of Posithonía at its northwest end and Isthmía at its southeast end.
Corinth Archaeological Site & Corinth Archaelogical Museum 2 Hours
Your departure will be from Athens and from here we will drive to the South West along the scenic coast until we reach the Corinth Canal which is located at a strategic position between the Saronic and Corinthian gulfs and connects the Aegean Sea with the Ionian Sea. We will have a short stop here for refreshments and of course to capture many pictures of the breathtaking Canal. We will then continue onwards and take a visit to the Ancient Town of Corinth where it is said that St. Paul lived and preached for two years. We can also find The Temple of Apollo (6th century B.C.), and the Agora (marketplace) within the ruins of Ancient Corinth. As we reach the Ancient Port of Kechreai you will be given a short rest break and you will be told the story of how it's where St. Paul disembarked and returned to Athens.
