Have to drive over it hopefully just once

A spectacular bridge but at the end of the day it's a bridge. €13.20 to cross it each time is very exorbitant so if you can, try crossing it just the one time.

The bridge is a truly beautiful piece of architecture. If you are in and around the city of Patras, take the time to admire this piece of art. Way too expensive, but it will of course, cut your time vs. the fairy and significantly cut your drive time around to the Peloponnese.

Few kilometres from Patras, this amazing structure connects Peloponesos with mainland. Toll stations are situated on each end, so it does not come cheap. Best time to see it and take pics is in the afternoon, from norhtern (mainland) end. There are 2 old forts on each end , conrtast with shiny new bridge is breathtaking. Worth spending time ans...

So this bridge is fairly new and is absolutely jaw dropping. The best place to see it is from the mainland side (not on the Peloponnese side) as there is a museum (free entry) that you can visit which tells you how it was built and has the Olympic torch and cauldron from the 2004 games. The bridge itself has... More

New bridge across the Gulf of Corinth at the western edge, the span connects the town of Rio on the Peloponnese peninsula to Antirrio on mainland Greece by road. Took them over 6years to construct the bridge, but it was open in time for the 2004 Olympics. There's even a statue near one end of an Olympic runner with a... More

The faster and safer way to get to the other side. Really spectacular views. You can also walk this bridge. You can park your car on the Antirio side (not the Peloponisos side). The length of the bridge 5 km. In the middle of the bridge (2.5 km) you are at the highest point. It is a nice walk, personally... More

As a driver you can only enjoy the scenery limitedly. That's why I decided to to take the ferry instead. I enjoyed the short crossing and took quite some photos of the bridge. The ferry also only cost about half of the price of the bridge. The ferry was 6.50 Euros for a car with any number of passengers in... More

Actually you get a better view of the bridge taking the ferry. Costs 13 € to cross the bridge by car but free if you go by foot. Interesting museum gives you information how the bridge was build.

Although the entrance and exit of this bridge are still under construction, a thing which is very annoying and has lasted since the completion of its construction in 2004, this bridge is a mechanical feat. The price is 13 Euros one way, which is expensive, but one can use the ferries to and fro, which cost 6,50 euros per car.... More
