Patra (also Patras, Greek: Πάτρα) is a city in Greece. It's one of the Greek cities with a ferry link to Italy, connecting to Venice, Bari, Brindisi and Ancona.

Hitchhiking Out

Northeast towards Lamia, Larissa, Thessaloniki or northwest towards Arta, Ioannina, Albania

There are two ways to get from Patra to the Greek mainland: a bridge and a ferry (both from Rio to Antirrio). The ferry is free for foot passengers and cheaper than the bridge for cars, and also easier to access than the bridge. It runs several times per hour.

East towards Korinthos, Athens

Stathmos Diodion Riou toll station

Suburban train to Agios Vassileios continue walking same road to Stathmos Diodion Riou toll station on 8A highway

option 2) I arrived to Rio Toll station (taking the train and then a bus to Agios Basileios) but a person for the security sent me away. So I hitchhiked on the nearby national road E08 until the next Eko station here: 38.32434, 21.870677 I found a ride directly for Athens easily there.

South towards the Peloponese

Catch bus no 8 from outside the central railway station. Stay on for about 1/2 an hour, into the small town of Ovyra on the outskirts of Patras. The bus takes a sharp right in the down and goes down a hill. At the bottom of the hill it turns left. Get off at the next stop (you should see signs for the junction) and you can follow signs to easily walk to the slip road for the E55 going south.
