  • "Patras-Ancona"

    The journey went well. The only problem was a really rude member of the staff that was supposed to help you find your cabin. Reserved seats cost a lot and are really uncomfortable. Do not book them!!! Better bring with you an air maittress and sleep on the floor.

  • "bit delayed both ways"

    Not exactly superfast, was delayed by 1 hour on one way, then 1.5hours in the return trip. Food onboard was of good quality, but a bit pricey. Reasonable cleanliness and facilities, would use it again.

Patras Guide

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.

Ancona Guide

The Italian port city of Ancona is located in the Le Marche region of central Italy and has been gaining in popularity as a tourist destination over recent years. It is popular for its natural beauty and lovely gastronomy, which the city itself has many things to offer its visitors. The city lies on the Adriatic Sea coast, some 200 km from the city of Bologna and 280 km from the city of Rome, the Italian capital. The city's natural defences, located between the slopes of Monte Conero and Monte Astagno, made it a good location for the original settlers from Syracuse to defend. Greek merchants established a Tyrian purple factory in the city and their influence on the area is widespread. During Roman times the city had its own coin system and Greek was spoken throughout the area.

Ancona is a very important sea port and is well connected by its port to many other locations. The best and easiest way to reach Ancona is by ferry, which operate to destinations including Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Hvar, Korcula, Dubrovnik, Patras, Igoumenitsa, and Dugi Otok.
