Content creator and pilot VGVideos used a DJI Mavic Pro drone to create this amazing video from an 11 day trip to the Peloponnese Peninsula in southern Greece, the site of the ancient city-state of Sparta.  The peninsula is technically an island, as it's been separated from the "mainland" of Greece since the construction of the Corinthian Canal in the late 19th century.  The canal, which is shown in the video, is too narrow for large ships; it's main function now is as a tourist attraction.
