Corinth Canal

Corinth canal sightseeing

Hold your breath for an awesome view over the manmade Corinth Canal. The canal of Corinth isthmus was delivered on 25 July 1893 though its history originates back to the late 7th century B.C. when the tyrant of Corinth Periander first set the vision of the canal. Through the timeline the first real attempt to dig the canal was initiated by Roman emperor Nero, to no success, and it was only until late 19th century, 25 centuries after the first conception, the coordinated work of visionary leaders, architects and engineers from all over Europe delivered this awesome project.

Epidaurus Site

In the peaceful hinterland of Epidaurus is the sanctuary of the god-physician Asklepios, the most famous healing centre of the Greek and Roman world. It is considered the birthplace of medicine and is thought to have had more than two hundred dependent spas in the eastern Mediterranean. Its monuments, true masterpieces of ancient Greek art, are a precious testimony to the practice of medicine in antiquity. Indeed they illustrate the development of medicine from the time when healing depended solely on the god until systematic description of cases and the gradual accumulation of knowledge and experience turned it into a science.

Among the greatest monuments of Greek Antiquity, the famous theatre at the Asklepieion of Epidaurus, the finest and most renowned of its kind, combines perfect acoustics with elegance and symmetrical proportions, qualities praised already in the second century AD by traveller and geographer Pausanias.

Ancient Olympia

In western Peloponnese, in the beautiful valley of the Alpheios river, lies the most celebrated sanctuary of ancient Greece. Dedicated to Zeus, the father of the gods, it sprawls over the southwest foot of Mount Kronios, at the confluence of the Alpheios and the Kladeos rivers, in a lush, green landscape. Although secluded near the west coast of the Peloponnese, Olympia became the most important religious and athletic centre in Greece. Its fame rests upon the Olympic Games, the greatest national festival and a highly prestigious one world-wide, which was held every four years to honour Zeus.

The archaeological site of Olympia includes the sanctuary of Zeus and the many buildings erected around it, such as athletic premises used for the preparation and celebration of the Olympic Games, administrative buildings and other lay buildings and monuments.

Grand Meteoro
St Stephen monastery

Meteora Monasteries

Meteora is the second largest monastic and pilgrimage area in Greece after Mount Athos. The first monks took refuge on these cliff tops fleeing an invading Turkish army around the 11th century. Several monasteries were built in the centuries that followed and all the building materials had to be winched up in baskets. Until 1920 this was the sole means for getting supplies up to the monasteries. In 1988 Metéora was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You will encounter a breathtaking site of impressive monasteries “balanced” on massive detached stone pinnacles, 400 metres above the ground. Meteora is one of Christianity’s holiest places as well as a landscape of outstanding natural beauty.
