Isthmus of Corinth

The Isthmus of Corinth is the narrow land bridge which connects the Peloponnese peninsula with the rest of the mainland of Greece, near the city of Corinth.

The Corinth Canal

Separates the Peloponnese from the Greek mainland. The first attempt to build a canal was carried out by the tyrant Periander in the 7th century BC. Across the Isthmus, merchandise was transported from one sea to the other and ships were dragged along a road (diolkos) still partly visible.

Acrocorinth

The city was protected by the fortress on Acrocorinth, which overlooked the main city. Trade and civic activities took place in the agora, which by its situation and layout gives visitors a real sense of the scale of ancient greek agoras. The remains of the Temple of Apollo is regarded as one of the best examples of early Doric temple building anywhere in the Greek world.

The great theatre of Epidaurus

The most photographed spot of Náfplio is Bourtzi, the Venetian small fortress standing on the rocky islet of Agioi Theodoroi. During the Venetian rule it was connected to Akronafplia through a huge metal chain that secured the port against enemy ship attacks.
