Where best to see Corinth Canal?

We will be landing in Athens at 4am on a Sunday in Oct this year, hiring a car and driving to Nafplio.

Hopefully we should be on the road by 5am..... are the roads usually quiet at 5-6am on a Sunday morning? This is my first time driving on the right side of the road (although I have been a passenger many times when we traveled in the USA).

I've done lots of searches and read lots of posts and many of them mention "taking the old road" to see the canal. Is this well marked and is it easy to get off and back on the highway (E94)?? I've also looked at google maps, satellite and google earth and the roads all look confusing!

Where would we need to drive to to be able to get out of the car and have a quick look at and take photos of the canal? I'm sure I won't be able to have a good look if we just drive over it so figure since we're there anyway we should make a quick stop.

If you leave the high-way, to the right, a little before the Corinth Canal you enter the old road. This will take you across the canal giving you the view you probably have seen on many pictures. It is a parking, some tavernas and kiosks just passed the canal.
