Patras Discover the Ionian Seaside

Patras is a bustling student city, a place where entertainment, history and culture mingle. Yet, there is more to it. You are at the north part of Peloponese’s west coast. Head south through Pyrgos; 40 kms of one continuous beautiful sandy beach, medieval castles and picturesque slops filled with olive trees will be your reward.

Day trip to ancient Olympiacar bus
Rent a car or use the bus and take a trip to the valley of Gods, the very birthplace of the Olympic Games, Ancient Olympia. The scenery is amazing; the ruins of the stadium and the sculptures in the museum are extraordinary. Check out the famous Hermis of Praxiteles.

The North West special car
Syvota and Parga. Just look them up at Google’s photos. Amazing huh? These small port towns have that island feeling yet waters are emerald green instead of blue and the coastline between them is like an elegant lace, so delicate you can have a beach by yourself (rent a bike to get there). Don’t get too lazy though. 29 km away there is Acherontas River, the scenery is the closest you can get to a fairy tale. Horseback ride along the riverside, sail with a boat, hike and swim, canoe and watch the beavers, the sea turtles, the herons, or take part in a photo safari; grab your camera, hop on a land cruiser and wander through uncharted areas during sunset.

Sea food - The Ionian Variety boatbuscar
Lefkada – Ithaca – Cephalonia. Mind you, this is the Ionian Sea. It has nothing to do with super white, minimal, Aegean patterns; this is green and brown and orange and deep blue. All three islands are in fact mountains in the sea; Cefalonia’s Ainos rises up to 1628 m. and Lefkada’s Stavrota at 1184 m. Amazing views, sea caves, traditional villages, pebbled beaches, sandy ones and breathtaking sunsets is what you‘ll find here. Plus, you’ll get to truly understand why Odysseus had spent 10 years of his life trying to get back to Ithaca.

• If you are in Ithaca during August don’t miss Anogi’s faire. Thank us later.
