The Corinth Canal  is a canal that 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, thus effectively making the former peninsula an island. The builders dug the canal through the Isthmus at sea level no locks are employed. It is 6.4 kilometres  in length and only 21.4 metres  wide at its base, making it impassable for most modern ships. It now has little economic importance.  Source
