Highlights
  • Corinth Canal - The Corinth Canal is a waterway that crosses the narrow isthmus of Corinth to link the Gulf of Corinth to the Saronic Gulf. As such, the canal separates the Greek mainland from the Peloponnese, turning it into an island
    The canal, though executed in the late 19th century, has been a 2000-year-old dream. Before its construction, ships in the Aegean Sea that wanted to cross to the Adriatic or anchor in Corinth, a rich shipping city, had to circle the Peloponnese, which would prolong their journey an extra 185 nautical miles.
    It is believed that Periander, the tyrant of Corinth (602 BC), was the first to conceive of the idea of digging the Corinth Canal. As the project was too complicated given the limited technical capabilities of the times, Periander constructed the diolkos, a stone road which allowed ships to be transferred on wheeled platforms.
    The Corinth Canal connects the Gulf of Corinth in the Ionian Sea with the Saronic Gulf in the Aegean Sea.

Depend on those who know the area well!

The Corinth Canal is a man-made channel that cuts through the slender Corinth isthmus, connecting the Gulf of Corinth with the Saronic Gulf. Consequently, the canal turns the Greek mainland and the Peloponnese into separate landmasses, making the latter an island.

Witness the awe-inspiring mountains, extensive olive plantations, citrus groves, and radiant azure sea of the Peloponnese, and unfold the unquestionable importance of wine in Greek heritage spanning nearly 6,000 years. The trip comprises of a privately-guided exploration to a globally recognized ancient monument, and a professional orientation into winemaking at one of the nation’s highly-acclaimed wineries.

Revel in the mesmerizing landscapes, remarkable ancient landmarks, and premier wineries of the Peloponnese. An ideal journey for wine enthusiasts eager to delve into Greek history, undertake a winery trip, sample some of the top wines of the region, and unfold the interlaced narratives of viticulture and ancient Hellenic civilization.

Excellent Tour. Ancient History and Beautiful Drive. - This tour was excellent. Our driver, Chris, made us feel very comfortable and provided snacks and drinks. During our stops, we had plenty of time to visit, and we felt like we could take our time as needed. The ancient history was fascinating, although most of the ruins at the sites were not well preserved. If you really want to dive deep into the historical significance, a private tour guide could be helpful. This is simply a helpful suggestion depending on your expectations to try to understand the ruins. If we ever get the chance, we would love to come back to visit Napflion. It's a beautiful town on the coast. I highly recommend this trip and would definitely consider Yomadic Tours and Chris again!

Amazing tour - It was an incredible experience, visiting the places where Pablo lived and all its history. The vineyard was also a memorable experience. We want to return with other family members.
