On our way to Athens (🛣️ 27,50 EUR / Class 3), we made a short stop at Corinth Canal hoping to catch some good photos with the big ship in a narrow channel, but we were not lucky ☹. Corinth Canal is a tidal waterway across the Isthmus of Corinth in Greece, joining the Gulf of Corinth in the northwest with the Saronic Gulf in the southeast. The isthmus was first crossed by boats in 600 BCE when Periander built a ship railway, small boats being carried on wheeled cradles running in grooves. This system may have been used until the 9th century. Work on the canal began in 1882, and it opened in 1893.
