“time for a quick view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

My husband and I had time for only a brief look at the canal as we were being driven from Poros/Galatas to Athens. Our driver knew where he could stop and give us time to walk across a bridge to see the canal. I am glad that we took the time to see the canal because it had been difficult for me to imagine the whole thing!

“Just a quick stop off the highway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

You can easily stop off to see and walk over the canal from the Attiki Oddos highway. In the summer months they have bungy jumping off the bridge.

“An absolute must”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

This is a narrow canal that joins the Aegean and Ionean Seas. The idea of building it was mooted in Classical times and it was finally completed, at great expense in 1893. It is now, mainly used for tourist traffic as it is can only take small ships. Before you go on the canal, you must go on the bridge overlooking the canal and you can appreciate the huge feat of engineering that went into making it. When you sail along it, you see the sheer walls on either side and will marvel at the manpower that went into creating it.

“The Corinth Canal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

I remember the first time I saw the Canal in 2003 --> My jaw dropped. WOW!!!
The site of a monster ship passing through the canal was amazing to me.
Although subsequent visits in 2006 and more recently in 2012 resulted in less of a wow factor, I would still re-visit this place if I was to return to Corinth again.
