Agios Vasileios (Achaia), Greece

Europe is one of the five inhabited traditional continents of the Earth. Physically and geologically, Europe is the westernmost peninsula of Eurasia, west of Asia. Europe is bounded to the north by the Arctic Ocean, to the west by the Atlantic Ocean, to the south by the Mediterranean Sea, and to the southeast by the waterways adjoining the Mediterranean to and including the Black Sea and the Caucasus Mountains. On the east, Europe is divided from Asia by the water divide of the Ural Mountains and by the Caspian Sea. Europe is the world's second-smallest continent in terms of area and third-largest continent after Asia and Africa in population.

The village is connected slightly northwest of the old GR-8 linking Patras and Corinth. The nearest interchange for the GR-8A highway is nearly 3 kilometers southwest via the roundabout. It is located about 4 kilometers northeast of Rio, about 10 kilometers northeast of Patras about 4 kilometers east-northeast of the Rio-Antirio Bridge.
