"A journey with two dogs"
Reviewed 15 June 2014 by Alessandro
The area in which the pets are transported is not adapted. The kennel is run-down and it's unacceptable that there is nowhere you can bring the dogs to do their business.

No cash machine or Bursar on board, only the restaurants have card machines, not the bar! so make sure you bring cash.

"A good prestation"
Reviewed 15 March 2014 by Yves
The loading and the unloading of the vehicles were easy. We were quicly welcomed and given the keys to our cabins. The facilities on board and the lounges are pleasant. There are two possibilities to eat: a self service restaurant and a table service restaurant (the food was similar). You can enjoy the deck from a table and an outdoor bar. A good service overall

Located in the Marche region of Italy, the city of Ancona is located around 280 km to the north east of Rome and is situated on the Adriatic Sea coast between the slopes of two extremities of the promontory of Monte Conero, Monte Astagno and Monte Guasco. The city's port is popular with passenger traffic and is one of the main ports on the Adriatic Sea. There are many things to see and do in the city. The city's cathedral, Ancona Cathedral, is dedicated to Judas Cyriacus and was consecrated dating the 11th century and completed in 1189. The cathedral is characterised by its dodecagonal dome over the centre, which was altered by Margaritone d'Arezzo in 1270. The cathedral's exterior has a Gothic portal which is ascribed to Giorgio da Como (1228).
The city's port is popular for passengers travelling to countries surrounding the Adriatic Basin including Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Albania and Montenegro. Destinations available include Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Hvar, Dubrovnik, Bari, Patras and Igoumenitsa. Facilities in the port include a cafe, toilets and a small shop. There is also short term and long term parking available. There are also designated parking bays for disabled drivers.
The Greek city of Patras is located around 215 km to the west of Athens and is the regional capital of Western Greece, in the northern Peloponnese. Visitors to the city should begin their exploration from Aghiou Nikolaou (Ayiou Nikoláou), the most famous pedestrian street in the city. There, 192 steps will lead to the Old City. A stroll around its cobbled streets will reveal grand colourful neoclassic mansions, which serve as a reminder of the city's glorious past. Then visit the city's Medieval Castle, built in the second half of the 6th century A.D. on the ruins of the ancient Acropolis. Its walls enclose an area of about 22 sq.m. The castle consists of a triangular external compound enhanced with towers and ramparts. Walk past the remaining buildings, and take in the breathtaking views of the city.
There are several spots around Patras that honours the famous Greek poet Kostis Palamas. His house is the most interesting one as is the house where he was born. When he moved to Athens it became the place where Serao family (from Italy) lived and where the Italian writer Matilde Serao was born. Today it houses the Kostis Palamas Institution. The most famous statue of him stands at Ypsilá Alónia Square.
