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 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.

We are a family of 5. Our car from hertz didn't have ferry insurance so we split two kids went with me on the ferry- free if you don't have a car with you. My husband paid 13 euro and crossed the bridge with one of our daughters. If you ask me we got the better deal, but both parties... More
