Take a ferry which is going from under the bridge over the water. It is cheaper and If you are photographer or not, you will make stunning pictures. CCheck the weather when you go!

This fantastic feat of graceful engineering welcomes the eye. The toll, though, is rather high at 13.20 Euro one way.

Beautiful to see, awesome to walk along, astonishing when you find out what is hiding underwater!! Whether someone is interested in modern engineering or not, learning about the methods used in order to have this bridge constructed is fascinating! Imagine the challenges and risks involved as the bridge had to be "planted" on a bedsea constantly moving due to earthquakes... More

One of the most beautiful attractions in the area. The longest cable bridge in the world. It takes just a few minutes to cross it by car whereas the alternative of taking the ferry-boat might take longer than 45 minutes.

You can walk it Drive it- toll is expensive! See it from Rio Or the best option is to take the ferry that goes beside it to really appreciate the size. Cheap to go on ferry although not always running

We walked over the bridge (3 kms!) and took the ferry back. Great views. Hugely expensive to drive over though .... Which is why the cheaper ferries are still running?

Although it is rather expensive to pass by car, you can go for free on foot or by bicycle. It is a nice experience, and the museum in Antirrio side is free and interesting. I would recommend it, especially if you are interested in engineering.
