Bari Bar Ferry reviews

  • "Better than expected"

    Lovely way to cross the Adriatic Sea. We slept well in the cabin. Everything was clean. Staff ‘old hands’ at the job.

  • "Basic but clean Jadrolinija Ferry let down by DirectFerries and the check-in process"

    Firstly the direct ferries website is sufficiently complicated that, even though I had searched on a crossing from Bari (Italy) to Dubrovnik (Croatia), it directed me to a sailing between Bari and Bar (Montenegro) without anything clearly stating the difference in destination!!! As a result, I would NEVER use Direct Ferries again to book. Then Direct Ferries documentation directs you to the boarding place for Jadrolinija and not the ticket office (2km away) and so a VERY convoluted check-in and boarding process. However, once onboard, the ferry was basic but clean with very accommodating and helpful staff. Thumbs up for ferry experience and double thumbs down for ticket booking and check in!

  • "Friendly onboard service"

    Boarding in Bari wasn’t very clear. Once aboard everything g ran smoothly especially traveling with young children. Would be good to have more food options.

Bari Guide

The Italian city of Bari, located in the province of Bari, lies on the Adriatic Sea coast. The town is perhaps best known for its university and sea port. There are many visitor attractions in the city including the Basilica di San Nicola which was established in the 11th century to receive the remains of Saint Nicolas which are now located beneath the church's altar in the crypt. Also worth a visit is Bari Cathedral which was constructed between 1034 and 1178 and is dedicated to Saint Sabinus of Canosa.

Bari's port is one of the most important in the region and provides a hub for sea traffic between Italy and the Middle East and Balkan regions. The port has two harbours. The Old Port is located closest to the old city and is mainly used for small boats and fishing vessels. The modern new port offers passengers destinations including Durres, Igoumenitsa, Cephalonia, Corfu, Patras, Kotor and Dubrovnik. Crossings to Corfu take 8 hours and are only available during the summer months. Services to Igoumenitsa take 9 hours and 30 minutes and also operate during the summer. The New Port is modern and offers both short-term and long-term parking options.

Bordered by Croatia to the west, Montenegro is located in south eastern Europe and also has Bosnia and Herzegovina to the north west, Serbia to the north east, Kosovo to the east and Albania to the south west. Popular visitor attractions in the town include the Stari Bar which is also called the Old Bar.

Additionally visitors will also find the 13th century Church of St. Nikola and a large aqueduct that supplied water to the town.
