The Greek city of Patras is the regional capital of western Greece and is located in the northern Peloponnese. It is roughly 215 km to the west of Athens, the Greek capital, and overlooks the Gulf of Patras and sits at the base of Mount Panachaikon. The city is the commercial hub for the region and is sometimes called the ' gate to the west'. Th port plays an important role in the city's prosperity as it facilitates trade between Greece and Italy and the rest of Europe. The Patras Carnival, one of the Europe's largest and most colourful, is held in the city every February and includes mammoth sized satirical floats and extravagant balls and parades. It is enjoyed by many hundreds of thousands who are buoyed on by the city's pleasant Mediterranean climate.
From the city's port, ferry services operate to the Ionian Islands and Corfu which are a short ferry ride away. The south coast of Italy is also within easy reach from Patras. Many shops, cafes, restaurants and hotels can be found in the city which is located very close to the port itself. Facilities in the port for passengers are rather limited.
The Italian city of Trieste is located at the edge of north east Italy and is situated close to the border with Slovenia and lies on the Adriatic Sea coast. The city is one of Italy's most unique with is former grandeur still in evidence today with is grand buildings complete with neoclassical facades. Despite the grandeur on display, the city is frequently overlooked by visitors who choose instead to visit other Italian cities that have a more established tourist infrastructure such as Venice, which is around 160 km to the west of Trieste. The city is a great place to be based in order to explore this part of Italy's coast but the city itself has a number of tourist attractions, museums, ancient Roman remains and some lovely cafes and restaurants in which to relax. Many of the city's most popular attractions are located in the medieval quarter of the Old Town and one attraction that is hard to miss is the Basilica di San Silvestro as it sits on top of the Colle Capitolino hill. Also in the city is the impressive 14th century Trieste Cathedral which is found overlooking the Piazza della Cattedrale.
