Livorno Palermo Ferry reviews

  • "Our return"

    It was an amazing experience. With two kids we were a bit anxious, also because the outbound journey with another company did not went really well. Insteat we did not have any problems, fantasti 4 berth cabin, night crossing with good service. We recommend it.

  • "Motorcycle trip to Sicily"

    Biggest problem was finding the port in Livorno, as multiple roadworks defeated our SATNAV - very frustrating, but eventually followed a camper van who seemed to know where he was going!! Loading was quick and efficient, but "slot" allocated to m/cycles very narrow, and required backing out on arrival - not easy on a big tourer. The cabin was great and very comprehensive, the crossing smooth and the food excellent at a reasonable price. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Recommended crossing, but allow plenty of time to find the correct port!!

Livorno Guide

The Italian city and port of Livorno lies in the Ligurian Sea on the western coast of Tuscany. Much of the original street layout and architecture has been retained in the New Venice area of the city. In this area visitors can see old bridges, narrow lanes, noblemen's houses and a network of canals that were used to connect its port to the city's warehouses. Also of interest are many fine examples of neo-classical buildings, museums, public parks and cultural institutions. Containing memorabilia, documents and operas by the composer Pietro Mascagni, who lived in the city, is the Museo Mascagnano and is well worth a visit. Organised by the Traditional Theatre of Livorno, some of Mascagni's operas are performed during the lyric music season.

The city's port is the third largest on Italy's west coast and provides many services and facilities including cargo handling and passenger services. The port's facilities include wheelchair ramps, toilets and shower facilities for passengers. There are also bars, restaurants, a conference centre, banks and a passenger information kiosk. From the port, there are ferry services to Bastia, Olbia, Golfo Aranci, Cagliari and Tunisia.


Palermo Guide

The city of Palermo is located on the Italian island of Sicily and lies on the island's north west coast and has a large and strategically important natural port, next to the Monte Pellegrino. The city is typically Mediterranean and can trace its history back to the 8th century and is today known for its Norman buildings, fabulous palaces and the hustle and bustle of its markets. Palermo's historic centre is the Quattro Canti district, which means 'Four Corners' and is where a number of the city's most spectacular attractions can be found. These include the Royal Palace and the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. The cathedral's sheer size and lovely architecture really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Also popular in the city is the medieval Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi and the 12th century Castello della Zisa. For visitors who enjoy the performing arts there is also the Teatro Massimo which is a recently refurbished theatre that puts on regular performances.

Ferries from the city's port depart to Genoa, Civitavecchia, Naples and Tunisia.
