In this video, National Geographic takes you to the Corinth Canal, the world’s deepest man-made waterway in Greece with walls soaring 79m tall and some areas as narrow as only 25m wide.

Engineering geologist, Haris Saraglou, inspects the canal to ensure it is stable for large ships like this 195m long cruise ship, the largest ship to ever attempt to cross the canal. Our unique aerial view allows us to witness this magnificent moment like you’ve never seen it before.

In this episode of Europe From Above season 2, aerial photography reveals the secrets of Greece, set in a vast landscape where myth and legend collide with the modern world. Flying cameras soar over Mount Olympus, the home of the gods, over daring projects to clear ocean waste and through the deepest canal in the world.

National Geographic reveals a new perspective of world-famous icons, such as the Parthenon in Athens and the Tholos of Epidaurus, an ancient building with an underground secret.
