Corinth Canal. 6.4 km long, 21 m wide, Rock walls rise 90m, build 1893. The first to propose such an undertaking was the tyrant Periander in the 7th century BC. Now nobody needs it – too narrow, however, 10000 small ships each year use it...More

Not much to do here except view the canal from the bridge but it is an historical site and an impressive engineering accomplishment. The vertical walls of the canal provide great exposures of the local bedrock.

A two way trip down the canal was educational and enjoyable, good job the sun was shining. The canal was dug to connect two areas of water and it cut out 144 nautical miles off the previous trip.

The Corinth Canal is much narrower than I had imagined, but I am still amazed that people could actually cut it at all. It took us longer to park than to stroll out onto the bridge and view the canal. I'm glad we took a...More

Over the canal is one bridge suitable also for pedestrians. Road goes through the field with old bunkers but not more than 500 meters. Near channel management area turn right and continue on unpaved road (no problem with standard car). If you go there by...More

I cannot speak with authority about the business of closing for any part of the year, though it was never mentioned to me by anyone. I can say that transit of the canal is impossible for any vessel with a beam of more than... More

Plenty of tour operators include it in a trip to Corinth. Time at canal is about 15 minutes, which is more than enough.
