Cruise to Patras!

 
The harbour of Patras is a multi-functional port, located in the city centre and within a few minutes-walk to the main places of interest and the shopping district.
 
Numerous architectural and historical monuments, a mild climate, an abundance of entertainment, railway and bus stations as well as banks and post office are within five minutes walking distance.
 
Situated inside the passenger terminal building are cash machines, international phones, internet services and travel agencies, cafe, restaurant and duty-free shops.
 
The region has many competitive advantages and is uniquely suited as a cruise and yachting destination, as it offers many alternative forms of tourism such as archaeological, religious, natural, culture, etc.., thus ensuring variety and diversity.
 
Patras is a favourite holiday destination, for both those in love with its sun and sea, and for those seeking an active, sensually thrilling holiday.
 
The port offers facilities for the supply of ships with water and telephone connections, while it currently arranges the provision of free internet access (hot spot).
 
The authorities also provide fire safety measures, through a special fire station operating in the port 24/7, with two fire- extinguishing ships. Hoists, forklifts, cranes and an O.L.P.A. bus for transport within the port are available.
 
The welcoming events of the O.L.P.A. SA testify to the sense of hospitality and responsibility all stakeholders feel, as well as to the importance of cruise tourism for the port. Tourism is linked to Greece’s age-old civilisation.
