As you head to AKS Porto Heli to enjoy your vacation in the Peloponnese, make a stop at the Corinth Canal to admire one of the most important Greek feats of construction of the 19th century. The Corinth Canal connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf, and has an impressive length of 6,346 meters. The idea of its implementation dates back to the time of the Second Tyrant of Corinth Periander; due to lack of re-sources and experience, he eventually created the ‘diolkos’, a land route from where the passage of ships was achieved on wheels. In the years that followed, many tried to complete the project, among them Julius Caesar, Caligula, and Nero; however, despite the great efforts of Ioannis Kapodistrias, the Corinth Canal was eventually completed in July 1893. It’s especially impressive to cross this canal by ship.
