Ancona Split Ferry reviews

  • "Confusion between Direct Ferries & SNAV "

    The only negative aspect of this trip was with Direct Ferries - i sent an email expecting a response to a request with regards to my disability - NO RESPONSE - when l made the booking there is no special place for assistance or at least l could not find it. At Ancona it was a bit misleading how to get to the boat - check in was at the SNAV - why did l have two reference numbers - when we eventually arrived at check-in SNAV told us - direct ferries does the marketing! SNAV were quick to act and help us with regards to getting us to reception on the boat and to the cabin - the cabin was clean and had towels etc in the bathroom. It was clean. I don’t think the loudspeaker system worked so well as we could not hear the announcements - getting off someone did help us to the lift - we would travel again

  • "Trip from Ancona to Split"

    It was very good .. I bought the deck space and I slept on the floor 🙈 I think there should be more instructions when buying the tickets online... but I know for future that is better to buy Pulman seats...

  • "Ancona to Split"

    Good trip, worthwhile having a cabin overnight, but a bit small with no shower.

Ancona Guide

Located in the Marche region of Italy, the city of Ancona is located around 280 km to the north east of Rome and is situated on the Adriatic Sea coast between the slopes of two extremities of the promontory of Monte Conero, Monte Astagno and Monte Guasco. The city's port is popular with passenger traffic and is one of the main ports on the Adriatic Sea. There are many things to see and do in the city. The city's cathedral, Ancona Cathedral, is dedicated to Judas Cyriacus and was consecrated dating the 11th century and completed in 1189. The cathedral is characterised by its dodecagonal dome over the centre, which was altered by Margaritone d'Arezzo in 1270. The cathedral's exterior has a Gothic portal which is ascribed to Giorgio da Como (1228).

The city's port is popular for passengers travelling to countries surrounding the Adriatic Basin including Greece, Turkey, Croatia, Albania and Montenegro.

Split Guide

The Croatian city of Split is located in Central Dalmatia, on the south western side of the country and has a picturesque setting lying on the shores of the Adriatic Sea. Split is an ancient port city that is centred around large Roman times Diocletian's Palace and has many bars, restaurants and cafes to cater for the large numbers of visitors it welcomes each year. In addition to its huge palace and Old Town which is full of ancient buildings and palaces, the city's harbour setting provides an added bonus for visitors as it provides additional facilities to enjoy.

The mountains behind the city provide a lovely backdrop to the city which faces the Adriatic Sea. The city itself doesn't have any beaches but Bacvice Beach is conveniently located nearby and is frequently very busy during the summer months. Other popular beaches are Kasjuni Cove to the west, Zlatni Rat Beach on Brac Island, and Potocine Beach on Bol Island which is also a good destination for windsurfing, scuba diving and sunbathing.

Ferries operating from the city's port depart to Ancona, Pescara, Rijeka , Korcula, Dubrovnik and Mljet.
