Departing from the port of Navplion and after one hour and a half drive you will reach the ancient town of Corinth where Saint Paul lived and preached for two years.

The Canal is 4 miles long, 70 feet wide and has sloping sides, which reach 170 feet. The depth is at 26 feet. Its construction commenced in 1881, although the idea of connecting the Ionian and Aegean seas in order to provide a short cut seems to date back to at least Roman times.
