    The crossing from Split to Ancona we made this year with the Blue Line ship - Regina della Pace - was, it must be said, better and more comfortable than the same crossing we made last year with the Jadrolinija ship. The crew were very helpful; the dinner in the restaurant good. We booked the luxurious "executive" cabin and were amazed to find it contained a jacuzzi (which we didn't use) but it has to be said that there was a distinct smell of drains in the bathroom area.

  • "Excellent ferry journey from Croatia to Italy"

    Ferry check was open very early, easy to check in and fairly short queues. Boarding 1 hour and a half early meant ferry left on time. Easy to board. Staff very helpful on board, helped me to find my cabin. Cabin was comfortable and suited my needs at a very good price. Self service restaurant was used for breakfast - good varied menu and competative prices. Ferry arrived on time and disenbarking was easy. Would recommend to others

Ancona Guide

The Italian port city of Ancona is located in the Le Marche region of central Italy and has been gaining in popularity as a tourist destination over recent years. It is popular for its natural beauty and lovely gastronomy, which the city itself has many things to offer its visitors. The city lies on the Adriatic Sea coast, some 200 km from the city of Bologna and 280 km from the city of Rome, the Italian capital. The city's natural defences, located between the slopes of Monte Conero and Monte Astagno, made it a good location for the original settlers from Syracuse to defend. Greek merchants established a Tyrian purple factory in the city and their influence on the area is widespread. During Roman times the city had its own coin system and Greek was spoken throughout the area.

Ancona is a very important sea port and is well connected by its port to many other locations. The best and easiest way to reach Ancona is by ferry, which operate to destinations including Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Hvar, Korcula, Dubrovnik, Patras, Igoumenitsa, and Dugi Otok.
