"Motorcycle Touring Holiday"

We booked with Grimaldi with little knowledge of the ships. Both ships turned out to be efficient vessels with sufficient facilities for an overnight sea voyage. On each leg of our journey our outside cabins were clean, well equipped and with good beds (had a double bed in the return trip cabin. We were travelling by Ducati and found the whole check-in and boarding procedure quick and straight forward. Only downside was arriving at Igoumenista at 3.00am and having to disembark as the ferry was travelling on to Patras. I presumed that the journey end was in Igoumenitsa and that we could sleep on until 7.00am. I was so wrong and it lead to a hurried disembarkation.

The ferry was on time...but wasn't clean, the toilets were in awful conditions and the ground staff in Igoumenitsa was rude. The disembark operations lasted h1. We decided to change the return data and we've been asked to pay a difference of €260.00 for 3 deck places, a car and a trailer for a return trip from Igoumenitsa to Brindisi. This is a rip off if you consider that we paid €760.00 for the round trip. I wouldn't recommend it.

I have nothing bad to say a part from the toilets which were not so clean.

There were only two toilets available on a ferry full of passengers. Just a few seats. People were camping everywhere on board. It was difficult to move around because many passengers would put their mats on the tiny corridors, in the cabins area till the reception...I can just imagine what would have happened in case of emergency!

Brindisi is a city in the Apulia region of Italy, the capital of the province of Brindisi, off the coast of the Adriatic Sea.
Brindisi was an Ancient Greek settlement predating the Roman expansion.
Its name comes through the Latin Brundisium through the Greek Brentesion and Messapi Brention meaning “head of deer”.
The main sights of the city are The Castello Svevo, built by the Emperor Frederick the II, the Catalan-Aragonese Castle, best known as Forte a Mare ("Sea Fort") and the Duomo.
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).
