Corinth Canal, Corinth

4.5
#1 of 84 in Parks in Peloponnese
Pass through Corinth Canal, one of the world's tightest navigable waterways, which separates the Peloponnese Peninsula from the rest of the Greek mainland. Before the canal's completion at the end of the 19th century, ships sailing between the Adriatic and the Aegean had to circumnavigate the peninsula, adding nearly 320 km (180 mi) to their journey. The waterway is just over 6 km (4 mi) long and only 21 m (70 ft) wide. Much too narrow to accommodate modern ocean freighters, this channel now mostly services tourist ships, attracting curious visitors from around the world. Make Corinth Canal a centerpiece of your Corinth vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Corinth planning app.

  • Was set as a stop on a bigger tour and I didn’t think much of it, but the sight left me positively surprised! I can say that I have formed an admiration of sorts for this historical element!  more »
  • It was pouring with rain on our day trip to the Peloponnese, but happy to stop off and walk over the canal. The water was an intense silvery blue even on a wet day.  more »

  • Fantastic view!
  • A place that you should visit if you are Christian and you know the background of Corinthian Church in the bible. You’ll understand why Corinthian city was the center of the peninsula.
