A very impressive sight but nothing more ! Of course people who prefer extreme sports could find this interesting since the Canal is offered for activities such as bunje jumping.

In Athens on Easter Sunday.... what to do???? Pretty much everything is closed.

We decided to do a tour to the Corinth Canal just out side Athens. It is really something to see! It joins 2 seas and work started on it in 1AD, so even from a historical perspective it is interesting! I would really suggest you do the boat ride through, as that is when you really get to appreciate this engineering feat. Just looking from the top is OK, but the experience of going through the canal is far better.

If you take a road in the middle, not the motorway Corinth-Athens and not the road nearby the Corinth Gulf, but the one in-between, you have a possibility to stop a while and safely go over the canal by the road-bridge and take a pictures in both directions. The Canal over Isthmus of Corinth is over 6 kilometres long and smaller boats still pass it often, which can give an extra nice touch to the pictures. In the old times there was no canal, but there was an overland stone ramp through Isthmus called Diolkos, where people pulled the boats from Corinth to Saronic Gulf and vice versa.

The famous Corinth Canal connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnesian peninsula from the Greek mainland, thus effectively making the former an island. It was completed in the 19th century but the Romans THOUGHT about doing it 2,000 years ago. Awesome sight to see when visiting Athens, Greece.

This trip is worth doing. The tour fees include entrance to the museum, travelling fees and a visit to the Canal.
