Highlights
1

Corinth Canal

Corinth Canal

The Corinth Canal is an important infrastructure which allows ships to enter the Aegean Sea when sailing from the Adriatic. Dug through the Isthmus at sea level, the canal is 6.4 kilometers long with a width of only 25 meters. The canal was dug in the late 19th century. Before its construction, ships in the Aegean Sea that wanted to cross to the Adriatic or anchor in Corinth had to prolong their journey an extra 185 nautical miles by sailing around the entire Peloponnese.

Nafplio

Nafplio

Nafplio is a charming city perfectly situated on a cape overlooking the Argolic Gulf. It was the first capital of modern Greece after the Greek Revolution against the Turkish occupation. According to mythology, the town was founded by Nafplios, the son of the god Poseidon, and Amymone, the daughter of Danaus. Frankish, Venetian and Turkish conquerors have left their mark on the town, strongly influencing its culture, architecture and traditions over the centuries. The Palamidi Castle stands proudly overlooking the town, 216 meters above sea level. In order to reach it you have to climb 999 steps carved into the rock. It is worth the effort, as the view from there is totally rewarding! After enjoying the magnificent landscape, venture into the castle, a place drenched in history, where the famous hero of the Greek Revolution, Theodore Kolokotronis, was imprisoned.
