"High and low"
Reviewed 12 September 2013 by Luigi
The outbound trip on board of the "Catania" ship was normal, the ferry was on time and also the boarding and disembark operations were quite fast; The return, with the "Sorrento" ferry, was ruined because schedules weren't respected (the ticket shows that passengers have to be at the port h2 prior departure, but they started to board just h1 before departure) and the disembark operations lasted over h1. The negative experience has been mainly caused by the return trip on board of the ferry "Sorrento".

I have travelled in August 2013, I have booked the ticket on line, the price wasn't 'so cheap, but still good in compare with the other companies, I found the customer service excellent, the ferry was punctual and it was clean, the embarking / disembarking was really fast, the cabin was really good also, the only negative aspect was that the air- conditioning too high and noisy. I didn't eat at the restaurant, but the service at the bar was excellent at very convenient price.

"Small ship but a cheap way to get to Greece"

Small ship and lots of people sleeping all over the floor. If you have no room reserved, be shure to be the first one to enter the boat! But it's a relaxed, simple and cheap way to get to Greece!

I travelled with Grimaldi, the staff was really helpful, the only negative aspect was the restaurant and the bar services, they weren't so well furnished. In the return journey we ate at the self service restaurant and the food wasn't good, also the bathrooms were very few in comparison with the people on board and they weren't so clean.

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.
Patras is the third largest city of Greece, and the capital of the Achaea prefecture of Greece and of the Region of West Greece.
The first traces of settlement in Patras date to the 3rd millennium BC, in modern Aroe. During the Middle Helladic period (the first half of the 2nd millennium BC), another settlement was founded in the region. Patras flourished for the first time during the Post-Helladic or Mycenean period (1580–1100 BC). Ancient Patras was formed by the unification of three Mycenaean villages located in modern Aroe, Antheia and Mesatis. Mythology tells us that after the Dorian invasion, a group of Achaeans from Laconia, led by the eponymous Patreus, established a colony. During antiquity, Patras remained a farming region but in Roman times it became an important port.
Today Patras is considered to be one of the most beautiful towns in Greece and is popular with tourists.
