Patras Brindisi Ferry reviews

  • "Pleasant stay "

    I had a relaxing overnight journey from Patras to Brindisi - the facilities are slightly dated, but fully functioning. Disembarking is a nightmare and should be better organised but other than that I would highly recommend this ferry service!

    What a wonderful experience travelling with hundreds of tourists sleeping on the floor. I could know many new friends.

  • "A pleasant journey"

    This was a nice, relaxing journey. I often travel by boat and Grimaldi Lines has been a pleasant experience, particularly because of the friendly staff.

  • "Patras Brindisi"

    I had a very good journey, thanks also to the weather, the trip was long but peaceful, we left Patras at 5 and in the ferry there were few people, all afternoon was quiet. When we arrived at Igoumenitsa in the evening the ferry started to became crowded, we had the cabin so it wasn't really a problem for us, we could manage to sleep quite good, the only negative aspect was the disembarking procedure which was a little bit slow, I think that in order to improve the service they should create more entertainment on board.

Patras Guide

The Greek city of Patras is the regional capital of western Greece and is located in the northern Peloponnese. It is roughly 215 km to the west of Athens, the Greek capital, and overlooks the Gulf of Patras and sits at the base of Mount Panachaikon. The city is the commercial hub for the region and is sometimes called the ' gate to the west'. Th port plays an important role in the city's prosperity as it facilitates trade between Greece and Italy and the rest of Europe. The Patras Carnival, one of the Europe's largest and most colourful, is held in the city every February and includes mammoth sized satirical floats and extravagant balls and parades. It is enjoyed by many hundreds of thousands who are buoyed on by the city's pleasant Mediterranean climate.

From the city's port, ferry services operate to the Ionian Islands and Corfu which are a short ferry ride away. The south coast of Italy is also within easy reach from Patras. Many shops, cafes, restaurants and hotels can be found in the city which is located very close to the port itself. Facilities in the port for passengers are rather limited.


Brindisi Guide

The Italian city and port of Brindisi is located in the Apulia region of the country and lies on the Adriatic Sea coast. The city, like many of the towns on the Adriatic Sea coast, has a history that has strong links to the countries that lie across the Adriatic to the east. The city's large natural harbour is one of Italy's most important ports and is today the port of departure for ferry services departing to the Balkans and to Greece, although in Roman and Greek times and during the Middle Ages the port had many other purposes.

Popular attractions in the city include the Castello Svevo which was built by the Emperor Frederick II and has a trapezoid plan with large square towers. Also in the city is the 15th century Aragonese Castle which was built by King Ferdinand I of Naples, and is located on S. Andrea island which faces the city's port.

From the city's port, ferry's operate to destinations including Paxi, Corfu, Igoumenitsa, Zakynthos and Patras.
