Port of Patras

Harbour Information, Terminals and Facilities
(Patras, Achaea, Greece)

Located in western Greece, the port of Patras is the main gateway to Greece from Italy and western Europe. The Ionian Islands, including Corfu, are just a short ferry ride away and the south coast of Italy is well within reach.

The port itself is very close to the centre of Patras, where many shops, restaurants and hotels can be found as facilities within the port itself are fairly lacking.

There is, however, a currency exchange booth just behind the ferry terminal building, as well as short-term and long-term parking.

Ferry Services

There are several car and passenger ferry services from Patras to other Greek and Italian destinations. Services run year-round and are of high quality.

Superfast Ferries operates a popular daily service from Patras to Ancona in Italy, with a journey time of approximately 20 hours, as well as running to Bari in southeast Italy with a journey time of 15 hours, 30 minutes.

Anek Lines Ferries also runs a daily crossing from Patras to Ancona which takes 22 hours; a slightly longer journey time than Superfast ferries owing to a stop-off at the port of Igoumenitsa in northwest Greece.

Another ferry company operating the Patras to Ancona route and taking 20 hours is Minoan Lines, which also operates the Patras-Corfu-Igoumenitsa-Venice route. The times on this long route are 7 hours from Patras to Corfu, 10 hours total to Igoumenitsa and 27 hours total to Venice from Patras.

The Patras-Venice route is also operated by Venice Line Ferries in a time of 23 hours.

Blue Star Ferries is another established ferry company that offers daily direct sailings on the Patras-Ancona route; daily sailings to Ancona via Igoumenitsa, and four sailings per week on the Patras-Corfu-Igoumenitsa-Venice route, taking between 27 and 35 hours.

Maritime Way runs the Patras-Igoumenitsa-Brindisi route. Brindisi is located in southeast Italy below Bari and is served daily in the summer months with reduced crossings in the winter. The crossing time is 14 hours, 30 minutes.

Hellenic Mediterranean Lines also runs to Brindisi in Italy, but direct from Patras. Departures in the summer are daily and crossing times are 15 hours.
