February – Visit Patras

Pick your carnival suit, join the boisterous parade and dance till you drop. Visit Greece’s capital for carnival festivities, Patras. The biggest town in the Peloponnese with an adolescent soul and a feisty temperament is home to the most popular of all Greek town carnivals. On Shrove Sunday (the last Sunday of the Carnival period before Lent) a great festive procession takes place with dozens of impressive carnival oats adorned with owers or satirical gures and parading on the streets of a truly festive Patras.
