We will have a short stop here for refreshments and of course to capture many pictures of the breathtaking Canal.
The four-mile-long Corinth Canal through Greece connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea.Only 70 ft. wide at sea level, the canal expands to a width of 81 ft. at top of its 300 ft. high rock walls.Only ships with a width of 58 ft. or less can transit the Corinth Canal. Although the canal saves the 430-mile journey around the Peloponnese, it is too narrow for modern ocean freighters.Corinth Canal, tidal waterway across the Isthmus of Corinth in Greece, joining the Gulf of Corinth in the northwest with the Saronic Gulf in the southeast. The isthmus was first crossed by boats in 600 BC when Periander built a ship railway, small boats being carried on wheeled cradles running in grooves. This system may have been used until the 9th century. Work on the canal began in 1882, and it opened in 1893. The canal is 6.3 km (3.9 miles) long and has a water depth of 8 metres (26 feet); its width varies from a minimum of 21 metres (69 feet) at the bottom to a maximum of 25 metres (82 feet) at the water’s surface. The canal has brought great economic benefits to the ports of Posithonía at its northwest end and Isthmía at its southeast end.

Visit the Corinth Ancient City ,ıt will Take about 2:30 hours
We will then continue onwards and take a visit to the Ancient Town of Corinth where it is said that St. Paul lived and preached for two years.

As we reach the Ancient Port of Kechreai you will be given a short rest break and you will be told the story of how its where St. Paul disembarked and returned back to Athens.The ancient city of Corinth, with its monumental buildings (sanctuaries, fountains, odeon, theater), stores, the paving on Lechaio Street, the imposing archaic temple of Apollo and the Museum.
