The Rio–Antirrio Bridge (Greek: Γέφυρα Ρίου–Αντιρρίου), officially the Charilaos Trikoupis Bridge, is one of the world's longest multi-span cable-stayed bridges and longest of the fully suspended type. It crosses the Gulf of Corinth near Patras, linking the town of Rio on the Peloponnese peninsula to Antirrio on mainland Greece by road. It opened one day before the Athens 2004 Summer Olympics, on 12 August 2004, and was used to transport the Olympic flame.

  • A very nice, but expensive to cross, bridge. Not a lot to say, it is an attractive bridge and easy to get good views from the old forts and castles either side. It was just expensive to drive across.....  more

  • Any country in the world would be proud to have this lovely structure. Very near to the last toll both you can park and access a pedestrian walkway that lets you look down the center of the bridge...

  • As a traveler from Athens to Corfu and back I highly find the experience of your bridge quite disrespectful to the needs and wants of the travelers. For our trip Athens -Corfu we were looking a way to go up to the bridge and after 2 failed attempts we made it. There's no sign and if there's it fails pointing the direction to the bridge. Now, from Corfu to Athens we wanted to go back with the ferry boat. Alas! There was no street sign pointing, again, "Port" or "Bridge". The road leads directly to the bridge, without any prior notice. Shame on you for not paying respect to us, the travelers. And we were not the only ones. We have the options and you don't give us directions. I see no modern bridge here!
  • Very good minimalist architecture. This blends in with the hillside. A modern yet classical look, better than the massive towers of regular suspension bridges.
