Paying our respects to the father of all gods, Zeus, we will explore the fascinating archaeological site of Olympia, together with the incredible archaeological museum.
The Corinth Canal is 6 kilometers long. It connects the Ionian Sea with the Aegean Sea via the Corinthian gulf and the Saronic Sea and separates the Peloponnese with the rest of Greece. Constructed between 1881 and 1893 it involves an excavation of 80 m (262 ft) in depth, and is 6,3 km (4 miles) long, allowing ships of up to 10,000 tons to pass.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are interested in experiencing the ultimate adrenaline rush and want to bungee jump the Isthmus Canal please state so. There is no extra charge for waiting time.
