A real breath taking sight as you approach the bridge on either side of the waters. A real magnificent sight and achievement for Greece. It could be even nicer if they had thought of a small layby half way where tourists could stop and take some pictures, although that may cause other problems with traffic and safety reasons. The cost... More

Worth walking through that bridge. There's a free ferry that takes you from/to Rio-Antirrio which is also cool so the best would be to walk one way and ferrying the other.

Yes, every time I drive on the bridge I have a feeling of a movie star travelling around the world. I enjoy the view from any angle and I am thankful I have the privilege of using it. When the weather is clear, you can enjoy a lot of the scenery around.

OK, we are talking about a bridge, nothing really exiting about it bar it's span and length. Since it's inauguration in 2004 it has become a landmark for the surrounding region and a must for tourists in the neighborhood. I have crossed it on my bike!

I have also ran across the Golden Gate Bridge (see: http://www.looptijden.nl/content/foto/2238.jpg) which still is my best bridge run, with a view of San Francisco, but my run over this bridge with a very nice over over Patras is a very good second place! I would recommend everybody who likes to run or walk to cross this bridge by foot and... More

Great bridge especially some nights when is full of lights. But it has really expensive tolls(13.9), this is unacceptable! It is better to go by ferry (6€)!

Pont Rio - Antirio is one of the most beautiful bridges in the world to walk or bicycle The view from the bridge is awesome, but the toll is 2 expensive ! This is the reason why so many people are using the ferries.
