Athens - Ancient Corinth - Mycenae
Total Travel Time 8-9 hours
After a 90 km journey, along the highway, we reach the well-known Corinth Canal that connects the Corinthian Gulf with the Aegean Sea. It crosses the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnesian peninsula from mainland Greece, thus making it the peculiar island. Its length is 6.3 km and was built between 1881 and 1893.
The Isthmus of Corinth was an idea and a dream dating back 2000 years. The strip of land that
separates the Peloponnese and mainland Greece is called Isthmus. The closest point is
only 6 km wide.
