Corinth Canal crossing

The Canal of Corinth is a 6km canal that connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland.

Remnants of the Diolkos are also visible at the Western entrance of the canal. The story of the Diolkos is fascinating and well worth watching:
