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, which is also sometimes called Valona, is located in the south west of the country where the Adriatic Sea and the Ionian Sea meet. The town occupies a beautiful location and is the gateway to the Albanian Riviera which lies at the heart of the Albanian tourist industry. The town is characterised by wide streets lined with palm trees and has a distinct Mediterranean atmosphere and lies in front of Karaburuni Peninsular and Sazani Island, close to a few sandy beaches. The town can trace its history back to the 6th century BC and began life in ancient times as a port, and was known as Aulona and was famous for its olive groves and vineyards. The town was an important landing port for ships transporting goods from the ports of Otranto and Brindisi during the 4th century AD along with being an important stop between the wealthy ancient cities of Apollonia and Butrint. Following the demise of Apollonia and Orichum it became the main port of Illyria.
Vlora is Albania's second largest port and has regular ferry connections with the Italian ports of Bari and Brindisi.
