Depart from Athens, make a brief stop at the Corinth Canal to walk on the old bridge and look at both sides. For many, the canal is as spectacular as the Parthenon.
The Corinth Canal is a structure of great importance, as before its construction, ships sailing between the Aegean and the Adriatic Sea had to go around the Peloponnese, adding about 185 nautical miles to their journey. The original idea for the construction of the canal was suggested by Periander, the tyrant of Corinth in 602 BC. but the one who finally started the project in 1830 was Ioannis Kapodistrias, the first governor of Greece. This happened after the liberation from the Ottoman Turks and ended in 1893 after several delays and restarts.
From the canal we continue to the ruins of Ancient Corinth. (Temple of Apollo and Roman Agora)
Ancient Corinth is where Saint Paul spoke to the Corinthians. A historical place for both the Byzantines and the ancient Greeks and Christians everywhere.
