Full description
After driving for one hour from Athens, you will discover the famous Corinth Canal. The Corinth Canal is a canal that connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth, and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, thus effectively making the former peninsula an island. The canal elevated Piraeus’ status as a major Mediterranean port, a project which spanned many centuries. Cut through solid rock, the canal is more than 6 kilometers long and 23 meters wide, with its vertical sides rising 90 meters above the water. You will spend approximately 30 minutes at the canal, with time for photos and refreshments. Following the canal you will continue towards Mycenae, one of the most important cities of ancient Greece. You will see the Mycenaean Acropolis, the tomb of Agamemnon and the ruins of the Cyclopean walls that protected this mighty city. After approximately 1.5 hours at Mycenae, you will have the option to stop at a nearby village or town for snacks or a quick lunch. Your your will conclude with your drop off at the pickup point, or any preferred central point in Athens or Piraeus.

Eine bleibende Erinnerung. Zuerst der Kanal von Korinth und anschließend die beeindruckenden Ruinen von Mykene. Georgios hat alles hervorragend erklärt, so dass diese Reise unvergesslich bleibt.
