The Italian city of Brindisi is located on the Adriatic Sea coast in the Apulia region of Italy. The city's port is a natural harbour and has played an important role in the city's, and wider region's, trade with Greece and the Middle East. On the north coast of the city particularly, there have been many important archaeological finds in the many sand dunes and on the beaches. Despite the port's economic benefit to the city, tourism still plays a major role in the city's fortunes. For visitors interested in agritourism, head inland from the city where wine (Wine Appia) and olive oil (Collina di Brindisi oil) is produced.
From the city's port ferries operate to a number of destinations. Ferries to the Greek island of Cephalonia are operated by Maritime My Way Ferries. There are also ferries departing to Paxi , Corfu, Igoumenitsa, Zakynthos and Patras in Greece.
The Albanian town of Vlora, known also as Valona, is located in the south western of the country where the Adriatic Sea and the Ionian Sea meet. Vlora enjoys a beautiful position because it is the gateway to the Albanian Riviera , which is the gem of Albanian Tourist industry. The town with its wide boulevards, decorated by huge palm trees, has a real southern Mediterranean feel to it. It is located in front of Karaburuni peninsula and Sazani Island, close to a number of sandy and rocky beaches and scenic mountains. The oldest traces of civilization in the town date back to the 6th century B.C. In ancient times the city began life as a port, and was known as Aulona, and was famous for its olive groves and vineyards. During the 4th century AD it was frequently mentioned as a landing port for ships carrying goods from the ports of Otranto and Brindisi, as well as an important stop between the prosperous ancient cities of Apollonia and Butrint. After the fall of Apollonia and Orichum, it became the principal port of Illyria.
Vlora is Albania's second largest port and has regular ferry connections with the Italian ports of Bari and Brindisi.
