Favorite thing: The Gulf of Corinth is a deep inlet of the Ionian Sea separating the Peloponnese from western mainland Greece. I crossed the Gulf by the Rio-Antirio Bridge which connects Patras' easternmost suburb of Rio to the town of Antirrio, connecting the Peloponnese peninsula with mainland Greece.
The Gulf is bounded in the east by the Isthmus of Corinth which includes the shipping route of the Corinth Canal and in the west by the Strait of Rion, which separates the Gulf of Corinth from the outer Gulf of Patras at Cape Drepano, where the narrowest point is crossed by the Rion-Antirio Bridge.
In medieval times, the Gulf of Corinth was known as the Gulf of Lepanto.
