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.

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.
