train reservation cost from patras to athens

by ridethetren

We have global passes and are wondering what the reservation fee is from Patras to Athens on the train? Is it correct that there is a compulsory reservation fee on this train?

Re: train reservation cost from patras to athens

by brotherleelove

I can't answer about the train but I can tell you that the Patras>Athens bus is faster and cheaper. If you're coming into Patras by ferry it's possible that the ferry company will offer their own bus for the trip into Athens. Check their website.

Re: train reservation cost from patras to athens

by johngayton

Yes you do need a reservation but I don't think it was expensive - for some reason the figure of 60 Euro cents comes to mind but that was about 4 years ago and it'll probably have gone up since then.

As BrotherLee points out the bus is faster and cheaper but the train ride is quite a pleasant one.

Travel Tips for Patras

general Info

by mindcrime

There is an Info Center opposite the port, next to the main bus station. They can provide you with a free colorful map that will help you walking all over the city center with some useful info at the backside about the main sites. The staff is friendly and can point you the sites but it seems they give the same answer to everything:
oh that church is behind us! Oh the castle is behind us!
Of course!! everything is behind them as the Info Center is near the sea so the city is behind them :)

The building of the info Center (pic 1) has a history itself. In our days it is an art center and houses the Info Center but it used to be the Barry storehouse. It was a currant storehouse and the building is a typical example of industrial architecture connected with the era of the economical boom of the city. It used to be a thread factory, then flour factory and at the end raisin factory.

The Corinthian raisin was the main export product of Greece in 19th century, mainly for England(1848-70) and then France (1876-93). Patra had the port so the majority of the locals were working at raising factories so after the raisin crisin (1893) the social fabric collapsed.

If you need information about the boats to Italy just check any of the travel agencies along the sea side. There are boats for 3 differents Italian ports (Bari, Ancona, Brindisi).

Parking. If you have a car, good luck! :) There is huge traffic and it’s very difficult to find a free spot in the center. There are several parkings though where you can pay (prices from 5 euros+)

Post Office. The one in Maizonos street (pic 2) is big enough and cover your needs if you aren’t familiar with internet yet :) But as a VTer just go to any of the internet cafes around.

European Number of Emergency: 112

TENTOURA, the liqueur of Patras

by INSULARIUS

Once in Patras or Patra, as we call it in Greek, do not forget to try the local liqueur of Patras called: "Tentoura".It is a sweet liqueur made of aromatic herbs.It is easy to ask for it and bring it home, as a nice souvenir from Patras.Its name, does not give you any pronunciation problem!

You can find Tentoura in every liquor shop around the port.

Rio fortress

by Aitana

There is a medieval fortress in Rio, on the cape near the bridge connecting with mainland Greece.

The fortification was built by Beyazit II in 1499. In 1532 it was taken by Andrea Doria, admiral of the Spanish Navy, and then taken again by the Turks, the Knights of Malta and Venetians, again by the Turks, until 1828. It has suffered repairs and reforms along time and has been used as a prison and during the WWII the Germans established themselves there.

I was the only person visiting the fortress at that time, a Sunday afternoon of late September. A strange feeling of solitude invaded me and as soon as I explored the fortress I left.
