More about this tour

Corinth Canal: The Corinth Canal, a testament to human ingenuity and perseverance, stands as a pivotal maritime shortcut connecting the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf. Carved through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth, this engineering marvel was dreamed of since antiquity but only realized in the late 19th century. Today, it serves not just as a significant navigational route for ships but also as a breathtaking sight for visitors, symbolizing the eternal quest to unite and conquer natural barriers.

Ancient Corinth: Nestled at the crossroads of major land routes in the Peloponnese, Ancient Corinth was a city of paramount importance in both Greek and Roman times. Its wealth and power are still reflected in the remnants of buildings, temples, and public spaces. Among its most revered sites is the Bema of Apostle Paul, an elevated platform where the apostle is said to have delivered his sermons to the Corinthians. This spot holds deep spiritual significance, marking a confluence of history, religion, and ancient civic life.

Nafplio: Once the capital of modern Greece, Nafplio is a mosaic of history, culture, and natural beauty. Its narrow, winding streets, expansive plazas, and vibrant maritime promenade are flanked by the grandeur of Venetian fortresses and neoclassical mansions. Nafplio's charm is not just in its picturesque setting against the backdrop of imposing castles like Palamidi but also in its ability to transport visitors through different epochs of Greek history, offering a serene yet profound glimpse into the nation's past.
