To go from Athens to Patra by car, you follow the National Highway Athens-Corinth. After the Corinth Canal, you follow the signs to Patra. Although the road from Athens to Corinth is very good, the road from Corinth to Patra is narrow and has only one line per direction, which is why extra attention is required by drivers.
There are daily trains from Athens to Patra but the trip is larger and more tiring than taking the bus. Passengers take the Proastiakos Train from Athens to Kiato and there they change and take another train from Kiato to Patra.
