In AD 67, Nero attempted to construct the canal with 6,000 Jewish prisoners of war. It was abandoned after his death and there is a plaque to Nero on the western end of the canal. The canal was completed in 1893. In 1988, a submersible...More

The color of the water in the Corinth Canal is incredible. Unfortunately, you can't truly capture it with a photograph. You can also bungee jump over the canal, which we unfortunately didn't have time for. We did eat lunch at a restaurant with outdoor seating...More

I don't really get why this is a stop. Yeah, it's a canal, okay. Fine. What made it worth stopping was the souvlaki/pita sandwich shop at the eastern side of the canal, yum.

Driving from Athens to Corinth and the Peloponnese, we stopped and saw the Corinth Canal. No real need to stop unless you need a break, you can see it from the road. If you do stop, the little strip of shops has a shop on...More

This is breath taking. So deeply cut! Even more amazing is that before the canal was cut they used to drag the boats over the narrow isthmus!

This engineering marvel is a must see when in the Corinth area. It is a quick stop, but well worth it. Two years ago our tour bus stopped on the north side which was the most convenient, but this trip we approached from the south...More
