The canal consists of a single channel 8 metres (26 ft) deep, excavated at sea level (thus requiring no locks), measuring 6,343 metres (20,810 ft) long by 24.6 metres (81 ft) wide at the top and 21.3 metres (70 ft) wide at the bottom.

If you are travelling by car, then you will have to get off the hwy to see it as you cannot stop anywhere on the hwy. The town is great and the view from the top is spectacular. Our favourite thing was the tourist shop that had a little window you could order souvlaki sticks. Best we have ever had.

A great day trip to take the small cruise ship from either side of the canal and go through the canal and visit the nearby islands

You only need an hour or so to walk across the bridge to get pictures from both sides. Suggest you stop here for lunch as the sun will then light up both sides of the steep sided canal. Go too early or too late and you will get shadows on the important areas.

one of Greece's most iconic places the canal is a must see while in Greece. Make the effort to learn how the canal was made.

The canal is breathtaking. The canal shows how if someone wants to get to th other side anything is possible. I thought about the first ship to make the journey. Spectacular.

From up to down it looks like a river. Looking from a boat up it has a strange feeling with the narrow channel. Passing of ships is not possible, but take time and make the boat tour through the whole channel.
