This canal was dug by hand, to save shipping from having to travel all the way round the Peloponnese peninsular, thereby knocking several days off their journey. Our boat journey took about 45 minutes to go both ways, and we first crossed over the submersible bridge, which sinks under the water when shipping wants to access the canal. The bridge... More

Schoolby history meant that I had to see this and it was worth the effort. We did not have time for the boat ride but the view in both directions from the bridge was worth it.

It is a nice experience and if you have never passed a canal before it will delight you. The fun is when you pass over the bridge and you see people like tiny miniatures. I traveled by day but I have heard that it is fun if you pass it at night.

We were fortunate to be in Poros and meet an English woman married to a Greek captain. She informed us that her husband had agreed to begin a tour through the Corinth canal. He could not believe that anyone would want to pay to sail through it! The trip was breathtaking! we travelled through the canal twice. Besides a greasy... More

See this deeply gouged canal at the bottom of a deep chasm and marvel at the construction of it although it is now too narrow for most navigation.
