Patras is a west-facing city that offers one of the most beautiful sunsets. The coastline of Achaia gives many options for moments of relaxation on its beaches that stretch for many kilometers.

The degree of accessibility to the city of Patras has improved significantly in recent years as, in addition to the Rio-Antirio bridge, the works on the road networks of Olympia Odos and Ionia Odos have been completed, while the airport of Araxos, which is just 45 kilometers from the city center with the possibility of international flights, has development potential.

The presence of the University of Patras and the Conference Center located within it, is one of the main reasons for visiting the city. Throughout the year, important scientific and business conferences are held, hosting visitors from all over Greece and abroad.

Just outside the city, in the direction to Pyrgos (in Kato Achagia), lies the Industrial Area of Patras. It is one of the 29 Industrial Areas that exist throughout Greece and is managed by ETVA Industrial Area.

The city is also approached for wine tourism as the famous and historic winery Achaia Claus is based here. In this area is kept the oldest wine in Greece, the old Mavrodaphne of 1873. Achaia Claus over the years, (founded in 1861), has been honored with many internationally renowned awards.

In Patras is the church of Agios Andreas (or Cathedral of Agios Andreas of Patras), on the west side of the city center. It is a place of pilgrimage and is dedicated to the first apostle Saint Andrew. It is considered the largest Orthodox church in Greece and one of the largest in the Balkans.

Finally, we cannot fail to mention the Patras Carnival! It is the largest and oldest carnival event in Greece. The events include the opening and closing ceremony, the Carnival of the Little Ones, the game of hidden treasure, the Parade of Chariots, the Bourboulia and of course the Night Podarati and the Grand Parade.
