  • "Split to Ancona"

    We got the overnight ferry from split to Ancona. All in all considering how much we paid it was fine but the aircon was blasting the whole time. Definitely take many layers with you! Would also recommend spending a bit more for a cabin as we ended up sleeping on the floor as the chairs were not that comfortable

  • "Mixed but good enough"

    The ferry has seen better days in some areas but the beds were clean and comfy. Excellent meal in the restaurant with great service. Beer on promenade deck mega-expensive. Overall an ok experience and would travel with them again as an overnight trip. Decent value for money - you get what you pay for.

  • "Adequate trip"

    The journey was normal and uneventful - which is good. Parking of the car on the ferry was awkward. This was not a drive-through ferry. It required backing the car and turning it around to exit from the same point in the stern of the ship. The interior decor of the ship was old and worn out. The beds were adequately comfortable.

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.
