    Stop At: Corinth Canal, Isthmia, Corinth 201 00 Greece
    Depart from and drive along the coast line until we reach the Corinth Canal where we will make a brief stop.

    The Corinth Canal connects the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea. It cuts through the narrow Isthmus of Corinth and separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland, arguably making the peninsula an island.

    ls considered one of the great engineering accomplishments of Greece.

    The canal was dug through the Isthmus at sea level and has no locks. It is 6.4 kilometres (4 mi) in length and only 21.4 metres (70 ft) wide at its base. The canal was constructed from 1880 to 1893, however, it is something that shipowners and captains had dreamed about for some 2000 years before it became a reality.
    Duration: 10 minutes

    Welcome to the grandeur of Delphi, where nature and ancient ruins blend in an extraordinary way, enhancing the beauty of one another against a setting of mountains, terraces and trees. Located on the slopes of Mount Parnassos, hundreds of feet above the sea, it is easy to see why Delphi was once believed to be the center of the earth.

    Before you reach the archaeological site of Delphi and its Museum, a short stop at the traditional picturesque village of Arachova is a must!

    Take your chance to lay back and listen to your driver as he ,on the way to your destination, he tells you the fascinating history of the Sanctuary of Apollo, the paved Sacred Way, and the Doric temple of Apollo. Admire the Theatre and the Stadium, used for the main events of the Pythian Festival, located on terraces above the Temple. To the right of the entrance to the Sanctuary is the Kastalian Fountain, where Pythia washed before speaking her prophecies. Across and below the road from the Spring you will find the Marmaria or Sanctuary of Athena Pronaia, with the conspicuous building of Tholos.
