The confort is decent. However, the price of the coffee is not: 3€ I was controlled by an employee who told me that I was not in the economy area… I had a ticket for the ABS class (not economy) The announcement are sometimes difficult to hear.

Ancona is a provincial capital of the Marche region, not quite midway down the Adriatic coast of Italy. It is one of Italy's more important ports, the terminus of the main rail line through central Italy, and the point of departure for many lines of passenger ships and ferries to Croatia, Albania and Greece. The town is finely situated on and between the slopes of the two extremities of the promontory of Monte Conero, Monte Astagno to the South, occupied by the citadel, and Monte Guasco to the North, on which the cathedral stands. The latter, dedicated to S. Ciriaco, is said to occupy the site of a temple of Venus, who is mentioned by Catullus and Juvenal as the tutelary deity of the place. After the fall of the Roman empire Ancona was successively attacked by the Goths, Lombards and Saracens, but recovered its strength and importance. It was one of the cities of the Pentapolis under the exarchate of Ravenna.
Igoumenitsa, the capital of Thesprotia and one of Greece's most important ports, lies 92 kilometers from Yanina. It is a modern town, one of the country's gateways to Western Europe, and a major hub for Adriatic sea traffic.
In ancient times Igoumenitsa was known as Titani and was one of the most important towns of the kingdom of Thesprotis.
The economy of the region is based on agriculture, stock-breeding, fish-culture, trade, craft industry, tourism and lastly, more and more, on transportation. Today, Igoumenitsa, capital city of the homonymous Municipality and of the Prefecture of Thesprotia, comprises a quite important sea-gate of entry to the Greek territory. A modern Technical Educational Institute functions, which is related with the production and the economical position of the Prefecture (tourism, trade, primary sector).
