welcome to Patra – GREECE
Primarily known for its busy port and ferry departures to Italy, not to mention the fantastic carnival held annually to kick off the Lenten season, Patra and the surrounding area offer a wealth of things to do and see. There is a sprawling metropolis by the sea with a wonderful old section. Neoclassical buildings, cathedrals, museums, shops, bars, cafes and vibrant nightlife make this area a treasure waiting to be found. Within easy reach are mountains, lakes, caves, and villages, all with magnificent natural scenery.
Patra is easy to reach from Athens by private or rental car, and by train or public bus. In fact, bus departures are very frequent throughout the day, and the trip takes only two and one-half hours, along a very scenic route.
