ItineraryThis is a typical itinerary for this productStop At: Corinth Canal, Corinth, Corinthia Region, PeloponneseThe 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.Duration: 15 minutesStop At: Ancient Corinth (Archaia Korinthos), Corinth, Corinthia Region, PeloponneseAncient Corinth was inhabited in the Neolithic period (6500-3250 BC) but the big prosperity begins in the 8th century.Corinth was a city-state on the Isthmus (canal) of Corinth, the narrow stretch of land that joins the Peloponnese to the mainland of Greece, roughly halfway between Athens and Sparta.Duration: 1 hourStop At: Kastria Cave of the Lakes, Kastria, Achaea Region, West GreeceTHE MYTHICAL 'CAVE OF THE LAKES' has something exclusively unique that does not exist in other well known caves. A rare creation of nature with mysterious galleries and strange stalactite formations. Duration: 1 hourStop At: Municipal Museum of the Holocaust of Kalavryta, Kalavrita, Achaea Region, West GreeceKalavrita and the surrounding area are a resort for all seasons. This is your lunch place! The museum is NOT part of the tour. We explore the town in foot before or after lunch.Duration: 2 hoursStop At: Odontotos Rack Railway, Diakopto, Achaea Region, West GreeceAbout 120 years ago Odontotos rack railway started from the seaside town of Diakopto parallel to the river and climbed to Kalavrita through bridges and tunnels.The little train incorporated so well to the natural environment that it seems that it had always been there. The way it was constructed did not put a strain on the ecosystem of the gorge. Using stone and wood from the area the technicians' work is so perfect that someone may think that the nature worked on its own. Duration: 2 hours
