One hour after departing from the port of Nauplion, you will reach the ancient town of Corinth where St. Paul lived and preached for two years. In ancient times, Corinth was amongst the richest cities and this is quite evident by its remains, including the huge Agora Market Place and Apollo's Temple.

The next site you will visit is the famous Corinth Canal. The canal is 4 miles long, 70 feet wide, 26 feet deep and has sloping sides which reach 170 feet. The canal's construction commenced in 1881, although the idea of connecting the Ionian and Aegean Seas seems to date back to at least Roman times. Boarding the local boat from the village of Isthmia, guests will traverse the canal, which takes approximately 45 minutes. Refreshments will be served during the canal crossing. After this unique experience, you will board your coach and return to Nauplion.

Please note: There is approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes of walking involved with this tour. Due to typically hot summer temperatures, guests are advised to wear a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen, as well as bring a bottle of water from the ship. The order of the sights viewed or visited may vary.
