First of all apologies if someone has already answered these questions. I reviewed all the reports I could find about the Corinth Canal, but some were quite old, so I am hoping to get the best current info.
I am hoping to visit the Corinth Canal around late March or early April, preferably on a day trip from Athens using public transport, a bus or a train.
My first choice would be to take a tour boat along the canal if there is one available from Isthmia or Corinth. Does anyone have any information on availability of canal tour boats? There was a youtube video clip of someone doing this sort of tour, but it is from 2009. I don't know if the tour is still available or where to get the boat if it is still operating.
My second choice would be to see the canal from the bridge, but I'm not sure if the bus or the train would stop anywhere near the bridge. The bridge is about 9km from Corinth. Does anyone have a good suggestion for how to get to the bridge over the canal for someone using public transport?
Thanks in advance for any information on this.
I can say "Giraffe" in greek, is that as well as some rough spanish and fluency in English and French, enough to get through airports, trainstations, hotels and tourist centers between Athens and Corinth?
We're going to arrive to Corinth by train from Athens and then continue to Loutraki. Where the local bus to Loutraki stops (how to find said stop)? What could be the approximate timetable and the cost of bus ticket Corinth-Loutraki. Would greatly appreciate the info.
where do you go to take a boat ride through the canal and what is the average cost?
There is a conflict in scheduling of a bus from Corinth's Argolis bus station to Korfos. One report was 1:30PM and 5:00PM. The other report was only one bus at 2:00PM. I can't find a web site showing a recent timetable. Does anyone have recent information? The problem is I may have to take another route if there is no bus after 4:00PM. How much would a taxi cost? Thanks!
is there light rail from Corinth to Meteora? Does anyone know what days, if so? Thanks!!
Last year I was denied passage through the Corinthian Canal. I was told I needed a motor and a speed of at least 5Km/hr. I paddle a kayak. No motor and a speed of about 3Km/hr. Does anyone know how I can get around these restrictions? Is there a prearraged time when a group of kayaks or a single kayak can transit? The office was no help. Who can I call?
I am planning my trip to Greece for this coming June. I will be spending several days in Athens. I want to take some day trips away from the city while I am there. I have been reading about Corinth in a travel guide and it looks interesting. However the guide book does not have a lot of information about traveling there. It mentions that there are some trains and busses on the Peloponnese but it does not mention if there is public transportation from Athens to the area. Does anyone from the area know if there are trains or busses that can be taken from Athens to Corinth. I will not have a car on this trip and was wondering if the visit would be possible without one.
Can anyone please help me? I'm trying to find the above places and I think they are in the Corinthia area. (or near Patras my Greek geography is terrible!). Its quite urgent so please email me at [email] if you can either help me out or point me in the direction of a relevant link!
