The fastest ferry from Italy to Greece can vary depending on the departure and arrival ports. The shortest routes are from Bari-Igoumenitsa and Brindisi-Igoumenitsa, and the duration of the trips are approx. 8-9 hours from Bari and approx. 7-8 hours from Brindisi. From Bari you will find mostly overnight sailings, while from Brindisi there are usually alternate day and overnight ferries.
What is the cheapest ferry from Italy to Greece?
Prices for ferry reservations vary depending on the route, the type of accommodation, the date of travel as well as applicable discounts. Based on official catalogue prices for low season, the cheapest ferry ticket would be 30€ for a simple deck ticket on the route Bari-Igoumenitsa, but even this price could be lower if booked during the Early Booking season (usually between December until the end February) or if you are entitled to additional discounts as a senior, student etc. The Ferries-Greece booking engine evaluates all your travel criteria and gives you the best possible price for your ferry reservation.
Is there a ferry from Italy to Crete?
There is no direct ferry from Italy to Crete but it is quite common for travellers to book a ferry from Italy to the port of Patras in Greece and from there travel by car to Piraeus port in Athens (appox 210km) to get the ferry to Crete (either Piraeus-Heraklion or Piraeus-Chania). The car drive from Patras to Piraeus is about 2.5h but we highly advise having at least a 4-5 hour gap to get there in case your first ferry is delayed or you encounter traffic on the way. Tip: The ferry companies Anek Superfast and Minoan Lines Grimaldi Euromed operate on Italy – Greece routes and offer additional discounts on the Piraeus-Crete tickets if you book with their partner companies. The additional discount is offered only if the international and domestic ferry tickets are booked at the same time.
Are there any ferries from Italy to Corfu?
There are some direct connections from Venice-Corfu, Ancona-Corfu and Bari-Corfu but they are very limited and only available in the summer months. The most common way to get to Corfu from Italy is to travel from Venice, Ancona, Bari and Brindisi to Igoumenitsa in Greece and then get one of the many local ferries from Igoumenitsa-Corfu. The duration of the latter ferry trip is 1-1.5h and you can count on a departure every 30’ to an hour tops from early in the morning to late at night.
What is the Camping on Board service?
Camping on board is a service provided by Anek Superfast to camper and caravan owners travelling from Italy to Greece. The camping vehicles are parked on the open deck and provided access to 220V electricity. Passengers only pay the price of a normal deck ticket but have access to their camping vehicle throughout their trip, making their ferry crossing quite comfortable as well as economical. The service is provided from 1st April until 31th October on all Anek-Superfast ferries on the Ancona and Bari lines, and certain ferries on the Venice line. If you are interested in booking the camping on board service you should know that it is only offered for bookings with vehicles that are officially registered as a camper or caravan (eg. modified minibuses are excluded). Pets are allowed to stay with their owners on the open deck as long as they do not disturb other passengers and the hygiene regulations are followed. Tip: there is an extremely large demand for Camping on Board reservations and places on the camping deck and places are very limited. Booking as far in advance as possible is highly recommended and by that we mean as soon as the yearly schedules are announced!
