  • "Faultless crossing "

    Just completed the Ancona to Patras on Minoan lines Olympia ferry May 2019. Everything from check in to disembark could not have gone smoother. Great comfortable cabin although not quite luxury cruise liner standard but after all it is a ferry and good wholesome food at reasonable prices made a refreshing and relaxed 24 hour break in our road trip from Wales to Crete. Thoroughly recommended as was our onward crossing from Piraeus to Heraklion.

  • "Much improved performance"

    I travel this route to Italy/Greece 2 to 4 times a year. This time the boat sailed at the time it said and arrived at the time it said it would. Bravo. I either stay in a cabin if accompanied but this time I was travelling by myself and used the First Class Airline type seats. They were great and I slept very well. The showers were fine as well.

  • "A very pleasant crossing. Staff were friendly and helpful"

    We enjoyed the journey with no problems. The staff were pleasant. The food was adequate but a little expensive. We were required to leave our cabin rather prematurely we thought and then had a long wait for disembarkation.

Patras Guide

The Greek city of Patras is located around 215 km to the west of the Greek capital, Athens, and is the regional capital of Western Greece in the northern Peloponnese. Visitors to the city should head to Aghiou Nikolaou which is the city's most famous street and is only a short distance to the Old City. This is characterised by cobbled streets lined with lovely neoclassical mansions which act as a reminder of the city's illustrious past. A popular site in the city is its medieval castle that was constructed in the latter part of the 6th century AD on the site of the ancient Acropolis. The castle's walls enclose an area of around 22 sq. m and the castle consists of a triangular external compound that was reinforced with towers and ramparts.

There are several spots around Patras that honours the famous Greek poet Kostis Palamas. His house is the most interesting one as is the house where he was born. When he moved to Athens it became the place where the Serao family (from Italy) lived and where the Italian writer Matilde Serao was born. Today it houses the Kostis Palamas Institution. The most famous statue of him stands at Ypsilá Alónia Square.
