"Comfortable trip saving many road kilometres"
We had a very smooth crossing with good service from all staff plus a comfortable cabin. Food and wine reasonably priced but not outstandingly imaginative. We would use similar ferries again to save long road trips.

"Trip from Split to Ancona"
The trip itself was very good. The staff were helpful and we were stoked with our seats. If I was to comment on the leniency of tickets, I would comment on the topic of allowing people who purchased standing seats to enter the section of those who purchased reserved seating. We are travelling for an extended period of time and are on a budget yet purchased reserved seating and paid extra for this. Although during our trip, customers who purchased standing seats woke me throughout the trip to see if anyone was using the seat next to me. As a customer I was not happy that people woke me during my sleep to take a 'free' reserved seat next to me. I paid £190 for myself and another person to sit on this ferry and was very unhappy to be awoken by people who paid nowhere near as much as me, to steal the free seat next to me. But I do thank the lady staff member that saw me shivering during the trip and tucked a blanket around me.

"It was great and happy experience..."
It was my first time ferry with sleeping. Ship was very perfect. It was Good trip. But, when I enter the ship by car, I was waiting those parking in ship and line was unfair.

Bathrooms and facilities extremely old and in bad conditions, there isn't any kind of surveillance at night to make people respect the resting of those passengers that have paid -expensive- for a cabin. People can drink on the deck and sleep lying on anywhere on the ship. Crossing Split-Ancona, July 24, 2014

The city is an important transport hub, with many connections to the islands in the Adriatic Sea and to the Apennine Peninsular, and is also a popular tourist destination. The city can trace its history back to the 4th century BC, when it was a Greek colony of Aspalathos. Modern day Split is a lively city with many sights to keep tourists busy including the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the Diocletian's Palace is one of the world's most impressive Roman monuments. Located within the city's old walls there are many bars, restaurants, cafes and shops that will cater for everything tourists would need. The mountains behind the city provide a lovely backdrop to Split and provide a stark contrast to the blue waters of the Adriatic.
Ferries operating from the city's port depart to Ancona, Pescara, Rijeka , Korcula, Dubrovnik and Mljet.
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.
