  Resolved Question: Travelling in Greece from
In July, me and two friends are traveling from Italy to Greece arriving in Patras by ferry before traveling to Athens on the same day. I was wondering if anyone has any details on the trains at the moment because I've read various things about the rail connection and cannot get any information from the OSE website. Also, does anyone know if the Greece plus interrail pass would work if the train has been changed to a bus connection? We're also travelling from Athens to Thessaloniki so any extra information about rail travel in Greece would be really useful =)

  Resolved Question: What is the train station
I am trying SO hard to book train seats for my spring break trip that is coming up. I am doing it on the Eurail website. I have tried looking for a Patras train station (which I have seen on MANY sites is right by the ferries), but an actual NAME of the station does not exist anywhere that I have looked online! Can anyone PLEASE help me? Thanks!
