Will be in Patras Greece next year, for a week Help plan

While in Patras we will have a car. Enjoy good places to eat, tours, history, day tours to any of the islands, on a budget. Any information will be greatly appreciated.

Has anyone taken the ferry to Italy?

Patra is nothing special, but the new Archeological Museum is good, and the little castle in Rio worth a visit. More information here: http://www.visitnafplio.com/visitnafplio.com/Excursions/Entries/2010/2/28_Wait%2C_theres_more_to_come!.html

The Diakaofto - Kalavryta railway is fantastic, or you could jut drive up to Kalavryta with your car: visitnafplio.com/visitnafplio.com/Excursions…

There are many other places in Peloponnese to visit, depending on how far you are willing to drive, just check the mentioned website, for the map here: visitnafplio.com/visitnafplio.com/Excursions…

Olympia is also great!

By car you could also cross the impressive Rio-bridge and visit Mesologio, Delfi and Nafpaktos.

I've always had problems finding a decent place to eat in the centre of Patra, so I hope somebody else will answer that question - I would like to know that too, for my next trip!

Thanks for the links, but since you live in Patra, can YOU recommend a great taverna or two in downtown Patra?

Sorry for my last post. I was editting and it was lost. Can't believe it. By the way.

Three of my best places to eat at Patras:

1st: Pavlis is next to Psila Alonia square and at the upper stage of Triwn Navarxwn square. It has delicious food and wine at a very beautiful environment.

You can find more details at:

secretpatras.gr/%CE%95%CF%83%CF%84%CE%B9%CE%…

2nd: Xasomeri is over the steps of Agiou Nikolaou Street. At this place go greek students at most that are very friendly and you can make a lot of conversations with them. The food is of very quality.

You can find more details at:

secretpatras.gr/%CE%95%CF%83%CF%84%CE%B9%CE%…

and 3rd: Ouzou Melathron is at Psila Alonia square. The food is more delicatese and is the best combination for ouzo, the greek drink. It's a bit more expensive than the others but if you don't mind you can give it a try. The dishes are extra large so you can order less.

You can find more details at:

secretpatras.gr/%CE%95%CF%83%CF%84%CE%B9%CE%…

I trust the choices and the spots found at http://www.secretpatras.gr and generally i found infos for excursions entertainment and clubbing- nightlife in this fantasitc website.

I would also reccomend you to spend some time at rion. There is a very cheap cafe-bar-restaurant that you can have coffee - beers and foof for company a kind of a dish with a variety of food choices. I can reccomend you this place especially at sunset times, because of it;s super view.

You can find infos and offers too for this store at:

www.soffer.gr/patra/stores/parathinalos/

it;s name is Parathinalos (Παρά'θιν αλλός) which means at Ancient Greek next to sea. Very good choice at any season.

I hope to be helpful.
