“Hand built history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We traveled through the canal by boat and so could appreciate its scale from the bottom. When you are in it you find it hard to believe that it was dug by hand over 100 years ago. You also get to see that it seems to require permanent maintenance! If you are in the area, make the journey and, if possible, go through by boat.

“Great views - exactly what you see in the picture”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

When you stand on the bridge above the canal - it is quite spectacular. The water is a nice piercing blue and the cliffs are large. We stopped here on our way to Old Corinth and Mycenae. Unfortunately, we didn't have time to take a boat ride. We were glad we took a cab because it didn't look like the location was marked with signs.

“Has the wow factor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Drove to the attraction by car from Kardamilli holiday location near Stoupa- took over 2 hrs. When we got there we ended up in town and had to ask -told go out towards Athens so we did. We drove over the canal be aware no signs re this attraction. We parked up and walked across the bridge wow!!!!!! A tip call in at the booth near the bridge and get tickets for a boat trip through the canal takes about 2hrs for the trip to go up and down and costs 20 euros each but if you go directly to the boat it will cost you another 10 euros for a couple. The boat goes from the next town and the boat is called Alpha II very good boat. The trip is breath taking well worth it and the photo opportunities are fantastic. All in all any excellent not to be missed day out and to see a masterpiece of workmanship as well.

“The canal and its bridge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Unfortunately I could not sail in the canal but we had the opportunity of seeing the mechanism of the bridge that, on the Corinthian side, allows to the cars to pass across the canal. It is incredible to see this metallic bridge that disappear under the water !
