The Corinth Canal - Athens Private Tours

THE CORINTH CANAL

This impressive 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 Peloponnesian peninsula from the Greek mainland, thus effectively making the former an island. Built between 1881 and 1839 it has a length of approx. 6.3 kilometers (3.9 mi) and one of the greatest technological achievements of the 19th century.
