    Stop At: Corinth Canal, Isthmia, Corinth 201 00 Greece
    Depart from and drive along the coast line until we reach the Corinth Canal where we will make a brief stop.

    The 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 Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island.

    ls considered one of the great engineering accomplishments of Greece.

    The canal was dug through the Isthmus at sea level and has no locks. It is 6.4 kilometres (4 mi) in length and only 21.4 metres (70 ft) wide at its base. The canal was constructed from 1880 to 1893, however, it is something that shipowners and captains had dreamed about for some 2000 years before it became a reality.
    Duration: 10 minutes

    Stop At: Ancient Corinth (Archaia Korinthos), Ancient Korinthos village, Corinth Greece
    Ancient Corinth's location was of great strategical and economic importance. It was located between the Saronic and the Corinthian gulf, in the narrow band of land which joins the central Greek land with Peloponnesus.
