Salerno Palermo Ferry reviews

  • "Nice trip"

    Excellent trip. The embarkation was slow and not very organised (I guess it depends on the port)

  • "great way to go"

    this is an excellent value and wonderful way to get to Sicily from Salerno. The trick is finding your way to the boarding area. I'd recommend a car service to take you. We booked a private room, which was clean and comfortable. This is a no frills cruise but since you leave at 11 pm and arrive at 9 am, it's a perfect way to get some sleep and travel between the two cities. Well worth it!

  • "Good, clean, friendly and helpful staff "

    The ship departed quite a bit later and I have reflected this in my rating below. However, it made up time and we did arrive on time so I want to make that clear.

  • "Travel by ferry from Salerno to Palermo"

    The boarding was very fast.We have travelled with the inside cabin. The ferry and the cabin was clean. The ferry arrived very punctual to Palermo. We have not used the restaurant or the bar. Nobody touched our car during the crossing. We can recommend that operator , the price was really good comparing with another crossings to Naples. The only problem was the labguage barrier but I guess in all Italy is the same. We are family of two adults and two children. July 2015

Salerno Guide

The Italian city of Salerno is located on the Gulf of Salerno on the Tyrrhenian Sea, and is the capital of the Salerno region of Italy, and is close to the Amalfi Coast. The town is well known as the home of the first medical school in the world, the Schola Medica Salernitana. The city, which is the cultural hub of the region is popular with visitors who enjoy strolling around the city taking in the wonderful sights, many of which are located close to the city centre. The city is characterised by beautiful pedestrian street, large piazzas and lovely shops.

The city is located in the centre of a geographical triangle nicknamed the Tourist Triangle of the 3 P's, whose corners take in the towns of Pompeii, Paestum and Positano. Because of this there are many points of interest including the Lungomare Trieste (Trieste Seafront Promenade), the Castello di Arechi (Arechi's Castle), the Duomo (the Cathedral) and the Museo Didattico della Scuola Medica Salernitana (the Educational Museum of the Salernitan Medical School).

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.
