A very good service from Patras to Bari but the price of the cabin accommodation is very high for the facilities provided.

"A good trip :-)"
We have travelled twice on Superfast (Bari to Patras and Partas to Bari) on both trips the service was very good, staff friendly and helpful and the cabins clean and comfortable. We would travel with them again. It would be nice if there was a sit down waiter service restaurant instead a self service.

"Great way to travel to/from Greece"
I've travelled on this route several times, and each time I've enjoyed it. The staff are courteous and competent and the food is exceptionally good. This time I didn't have a berth (to avoid being in a cramped cabin with strangers) and managed to sleep well on a bench once the commotion of the passengers embarking at midnight (in Igoumenitsa) had died down.

The Greek city of Patras is the regional capital of western Greece and is located in the northern Peloponnese. It is roughly 215 km to the west of Athens, the Greek capital, and overlooks the Gulf of Patras and sits at the base of Mount Panachaikon. The city is the commercial hub for the region and is sometimes called the ' gate to the west'. Th port plays an important role in the city's prosperity as it facilitates trade between Greece and Italy and the rest of Europe. The Patras Carnival, one of the Europe's largest and most colourful, is held in the city every February and includes mammoth sized satirical floats and extravagant balls and parades. It is enjoyed by many hundreds of thousands who are buoyed on by the city's pleasant Mediterranean climate.
From the city's port, ferry services operate to the Ionian Islands and Corfu which are a short ferry ride away. The south coast of Italy is also within easy reach from Patras. Many shops, cafes, restaurants and hotels can be found in the city which is located very close to the port itself. Facilities in the port for passengers are rather limited.
The Italian city and port of Bari lies on the Adriatic Sea coasty and is the capital of the Italian region of Puglia. The city is not particularly well known as a tourist destination although there are a few sights of interest and is conveniently located for visitors to use it as a base from which to explore the surrounding area. The city's historic centre is located on a headland that protrudes into the Adriatic Sea. Most of the archaeology in the city lies beneath the maze of narrow lanes in the Vecchia Bari quarter of the city which is famous for being confusing to visitors who frequently find themselves lost. Bari's most famous church is located between the sea and the Old Town, and is the 11th century Romanesque Basilica di San Nicola. The church is dedicated to St. Nicholas and was built in order to house his remains, which still lie in the crypt. In the main part of the church there are several interesting sights including an elaborate stone canopy over the altar and an 11th century marble bishop's throne, known as the Cattedra di Elia.
From the port of Bari, ferries depart towards Durres, Igoumenista, Cephalonia, Corfu, Patras, Kotor and Dubrovnik.
