Not amazed by Patras, Greece

Its a big, ugly city, only mass tourism oriented, nothing special about it. When we asked a taxi driver for the next beach, he drove us to 'Rion Beach'. It was a street with only pubs and bars and only one camping place, which was very expensive and not really nice. If your are going there, you should know where you want to rest, maybe some cozy and not too expensive inn would be the best choice or a good camping, not like the one we have found. Still, I say youshould spend your time in Greece much better than coming to Patras.
