Palermo Salerno Ferry reviews

  • "A lots of troubles"

    No chances to get the boarding ticket and no indication on where to get it. Really long boarding times and underneath a really hot sun. The common area became a dormitory (even during the day) and all the seats where busy becouse of that.

  • "Just a late departure "

    Boarding was delayed because every car coming off the ferry was being searched by the authorities. Our voyage arrived in Salerno two hours late which for us was no great inconvenience because the scheduled arrival was very early in the morning.

    'Catania' travelled on Catania

  • "Great experience "

    We took the ship from Palermo to Salerno and had a great experience. However, the bed may not be long enough for those who are more than 190cm.

Palermo Guide

The Italian city of Palermo is located in the north west of Sicily, by the Gulf of Palermo in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The city has a reputation across the world for its history, gastronomy, culture and architecture with a its origins dating back over 2,700 years. Many visitors flock to the city and it has become Sicily's main hub for culture, commerce and tourism. The city's centre has many examples of fine palaces and churches which give way to areas whose way of life doesn't seem to have changed for centuries. This is perhaps most evident in the markets in Palermo, whose Arabic origins can still be seen today thanks to the noise, aromas, colours, narrow streets and with the excellent array of produce on offer and the general 'souk's atmosphere.

From the city's port, ferry services operate to destinations include Genoa, with a crossing time of 21 hours, Civitavecchia, 14 hour crossing time, Naples, 10 hours and 30 minutes, and Tunisia, 10 hours. It is recommended that foot passengers check in 1 hour prior to departure and vehicles 2 hours prior to departure. For all departures to Tunisia check in should be 4 hours prior to departure.


Salerno Guide

The Italian city of Salerno lies on the Gulf of Salerno, in the Salerno region of Italy. The city lies on the shores of the Tyrrhenian Sea and is close to the Amalfi Coast and is perhaps best known for being the home of the world's first medical school, the Schola Medica Salernitana. Being the cultural hub of the region, Salerno has many things for visitors to see and do. The city has some lovely pedestrian streets and large piazzas and for visitors who have a car they can easily drive around the city as traffic is not a problem and parking is available in most areas.

Salerno is located at the geographical centre of a triangle nicknamed Tourist Triangle of the 3 P (namely a triangle with the corners in Pompeii, Paestum and Positano). This provides Salerno with a unique opportunity to attract tourists who visit the city to take in sights that include the Lungomare Trieste, the Castello di Arechi, the Duomo and the Museo Didattico della Scuola Medica Salernitana.
