Palermo Naples Ferry reviews

  • "Delays too long"

    Although the actual time spent on the boat was extremely pleasant, and everything on board was great (restaurants, private cabins etc...), we were asked to turn up 3 hours before departure of boat, only to discover that our boat had not yet arrived, and we left with 2 hours' delay....We were told that we had been asked to arrive early for security reasons, but there was no security check, so all in all it was a very irritating 5 hour wait .

  • "Great service"

    We had an excellent experience on this trip. Delicious pizza eaten and a very comfortable and clean family suite. Only small grumble was being told of arrival at 7am when we actually arrived after 8.30 = lost sleep!!

  • "Palermo to Naples."

    We found our cabin excellent and well stocked. Would us this ship again. Did find it very confusing locating the booking office at Palermo. The name of the ship was slightly different to on our boarding pass. As there were no indicators on the wharf pointing to walking passengers. The boarding process was totally confusing.

  • "Wifi needed"

    Everything was better than my expectations. The only down side was that there was no wifi within the ship.

Naples Guide

The Italian city of Naples is the largest city in southern Italy and is certainly one of the most beautiful, especially around the Bay of Naples. The city was founded by the Greeks and was later enlarged by the Romans all of which is reflected in the city's rich history and stunning architecture. Located to one side of Naples is Mount Vesuvius, and near to the bay are the picturesque islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, all of which are located close enough for day trips departing from Naples.

The centre of Naples is quite compact and is full of palaces, spectacular churches, monasteries, convents and castles and is the perfect place to stroll around and marvel at the spectacle. Popular attractions are the Duomo, which is an ancient cathedral that dates back to the late 13th century and early 14th century. Also of interest is the Palazzo Reale, the Teatro San Carlo and the Museo Archeologico Nazionale, which is filled with some of the best archaeological exhibits in Italy. Finally, there is the Napoli Sotterranea which is a series of underground tunnels, stairs, rooms and halls that are right in the heart of the city.
