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.

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.

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.
