I actually had never heard of this until reading and seeing about it in Janetanne's page! Along with the likes of the Suez and the Panama canals these are feats of engineering and human ingenuity so I wanted to come see this - on my way to historic Ancient Corinth!
When I got here about 4pm a friendly old guy here at a little stall at the exit gate advised me that it had closed at 3pm and would reopen at 11am in the morning - hows that for visiting hours for a very popular tourist attraction in May still running on Winter opening hours! with sunrise at about 7am and sunset almost at 9pm!!

Sat for about an hour in a wonderful position in the sun on the fortress walls overlooking Ancient Corinth and the blue sea below me.
This spot would be fighting for top position of best castles or fortresses Ive visited - majestic entrance gate with its huge cobbled entrance road, way up on top of a huge hill! And the place was just absolutely covered in wonderful spring flowers of many colours but particularly wonderful were the poppies!
- In a nutshell:If you did well with your timing you could do these 3 sites - Corinth Canal, Ancient Corinth and AcroCorinth in one completely satisfying day!
7 km southeast of Korinthos (modern Corinth) is Arhea Korinthos (ancient Corinth) which is spread around the Recommended... more travel advice
