Genoa Porto Torres Ferry reviews

  • "Genoa to Porto Torres Round Trip"

    This was our second trip to Sardinia with Tirrenia, and we enjoyed it as much as we did we did the first time. The Check-in, Security Clearance and Boarding processes are fairly straightforward, and like an airpot require some patience as it takes some time to load hundreds of cars and passengers onto a ship. Once onboard, the Officers and Crew are VERY Courteous and helpful, and speak enough English to offer assistance. We always book a cabin so we can sleep on the 12 hour journey and have a private toilet and shower. The cabins are quiet, roomy, clean, well-equipped with towels and linens and the bunks offer a comfortable night's sleep. Many passengers book a reclining sleeper seat, or set up camp on the deck. The self-service cafeteria offers good food, although a bit pricey, and has a number of window tables from which to enjoy the view. A Real Treat is the morning Breakfast Bar, at which you can order Delicious Italian Coffee, Croissants, and Fresh-Squeezed Orange Juice. There is a children's playroom, card room, bar, big screen Italian TV. Internet is slow, we bring books or our own movies to watch. In general, the ship is clean, tidy, and well-maintained. It normally leaves and arrives close to on-time, but the debarkation process is time-consuming and often takes close to an hour after arrival, depending on which deck you are parked on.

  • "Great overnight from Genova to Porto Torres"

    This was our first trip on a car ferry and we were a bit concerned as we walked through the car parking area and then up to the passenger reception. Once we entered the doorway to reception all our concerns vanished. This was a very nicely appointed ship and had all the necessary facilities and crew. We had an inside cabin that would sleep four easily and had plenty of space as we were only two. There was a private bath with shower which was very nice for cleaning up in the morning. We had no problems sleeping and found the bar/ lounge to have very nice snacks and drinks. All in all a very good trip even if our cabin door was a bit sticky and required a bit of shoving to open from the hallway.

  • "Very good trip Genoa -> Porto Torres"

    I used the ferry for a 5 day trip to Sardinia travelling by motorbike. Booking with Direct Ferries was easy and a change I made to accommodation worked fine. Direct Ferries give you vouchers that must be exchanged for the tickets at the office in Genoa - this is located on the 1st floor of the Ferry Terminal Shopping Centre. Luckily being on a bike I could just park it on the pavement and nip in - it is a very congested area so not sure how that would work with a car. I headed down to embarkation about 3 hours before the ferry left just to get out of the mayhem of Genoa. All worked well, I was given a voucher for my cabin and joined the queue. Good thing in Genoa is that you could walk through to the shopping centre after joining the queue and parking up. Boarding was quick and easy, cabin key was collected from reception and luckily I was given a 4 berth cabin. It was clean and functional, shower worked well, no complaints at all. Snack bar had various sandwiches and pastries or you could get a full meal in the restaurant - I didn't bother. After 11 hours of riding that day I was in my cabin at 9pm and slept through. Ship arrived on time and unloading was stress free. All in all an excellent trip.

The maze of squares and narrow streets make up Genoa's historic centre. The city has influences of the medieval about it, along with 16th century and Baroque influences (San Matteo square and the ancient via Aurea, now via Garibaldi).
