Vlora Brindisi Ferry reviews

  • "Quiet route."

    Vlore-Brindisi is a quiet route. The ship was half-empty - which was a very enjoyable. Most of the facilities were closed - except for a small bar/coffee shop and the toilets. A very relaxing trip.

  • "Travelled between Vlore, Albania and Brindisi, Italy"

    Easy to book on the internet. Friendly staff on the ferry. The ferry did not keep the time table. The restaurant was very dirty. The lock on the toilet door was broken. Dirty toilet.

  • "3 hours delay"

    On the booking confirmation it says that you have to go to the check in 180 minutes before the departure. So we went to the Valona harbour at 11am because our departure was at 2pm. We board immidiatelyand then we waited till 4pm without any kind of informations from European Seaways. Apparently there was a problem with the customs....the useless waiting on board it was not pleasant!

Vlora Guide

Vlora is a town and second largest port in Albania and is located on the Bay of Vlore, an inlet of the Adriatic Sea, and is almost completely surrounded by mountains. The town's port is only 130 km from the Salento coast in Italy and is the closest of any port to Bari. Located at the entrance to the Bay of Vlore is the nearby island of Sazan and the town itself is surrounded by pretty little gardens and olive groves. Valonia, the mass name for acorn cups obtained in the neighbouring oak forests and (because of its chemical derivatives) used by tanners, derives its name from Valona, the ancient name of Vlore. The town can trace its history back to the 6th century BC when it was founded as an ancient Greek colony and has been continuously inhabited ever since. Because of the development of tourism in recent years, pubs, nightclubs, restaurants and bars have sprung up, especially in the area of 'Cold Water' (Uji i Ftohte), around 3 km from the centre of the town.

From the town's port there are 3 sailings per week to Brindisi in Italy with a crossing time of around 5 hours.

Brindisi Guide

The Italian city and port of Brindisi is located in the Apulia region of the country and lies on the Adriatic Sea coast. The city, like many of the towns on the Adriatic Sea coast, has a history that has strong links to the countries that lie across the Adriatic to the east. The city's large natural harbour is one of Italy's most important ports and is today the port of departure for ferry services departing to the Balkans and to Greece, although in Roman and Greek times and during the Middle Ages the port had many other purposes.

Popular attractions in the city include the Castello Svevo which was built by the Emperor Frederick II and has a trapezoid plan with large square towers. Also in the city is the 15th century Aragonese Castle which was built by King Ferdinand I of Naples, and is located on S. Andrea island which faces the city's port.

From the city's port, ferry's operate to destinations including Paxi, Corfu, Igoumenitsa, Zakynthos and Patras.
