Split Ancona Ferry reviews

  • "Very enjoyable trip"

    We had a lovely crossing from Split to Ancona in July. The staff were nice, the cabin was clean. My only recommendation would be that staff actually help people getting their luggage up the ram and escalators. Elderly and young kids struggled, to pull very heavy suitcases up a wobbly ramp and 2 sets of narrow escalators.

    Check in was easy and the boat was nice! The only thing I wish the boat has was WiFi

  • "Ferry trip made easy."

    I booked at the main ferry terminal and the girls were very helpful, went above and beyond the role. The trip was great, smooth sailing and I recommend the passengers add value to their trip by getting on board tickets for dinner and breakfast.

  • "Great journey - don't believe every review you read!! "

    Had a great trip to Ancona with SNAV Ferries. The boat left an hour late but that was OK as the views over Split were fantastic. We had a 3 course meal and a bottle of wine on board, both of which were lovely. We also booked a cabin which was spotlessly clean and adequate for an overnight sailing. I would recommend this ferry trip to anyone.

Split Guide

The Croatian city of Split is Croatia's second largest city and is located in the Dalmatia region of the country. It lies on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea and is spread across a central peninsular. The city is an important transport hub, with many connections to the islands in the Adriatic Sea and to the Apennine Peninsular, and is also a popular tourist destination. The city can trace its history back to the 4th century BC, when it was a Greek colony of Aspalathos. Modern day Split is a lively city with many sights to keep tourists busy including the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the Diocletian's Palace is one of the world's most impressive Roman monuments. Located within the city's old walls there are many bars, restaurants, cafes and shops that will cater for everything tourists would need. The mountains behind the city provide a lovely backdrop to Split and provide a stark contrast to the blue waters of the Adriatic.

Ferries operating from the city's port depart to Ancona, Pescara, Rijeka , Korcula, Dubrovnik and Mljet.


Ancona Guide

The Italian port city of Ancona is located in the Le Marche region of central Italy and has been gaining in popularity as a tourist destination over recent years thanks to its natural beauty and lovely gastronomy. The city lies on the Adriatic Sea coast, some 200 km from the city of Bologna and 280 km from the city of Rome, the Italian capital. The city's natural defences, located between the slopes of Monte Conero and Monte Astagno, made it a good location for the original settlers from Syracuse to defend. Greek merchants established a Tyrian purple factory in the city and their influence on the area is widespread. During Roman times the city had its own coin system and Greek was spoken throughout the area.

Ancona is a very important sea port and is well connected by its port to many other locations. The best and easiest way to reach Ancona is by ferry, which operate to destinations including Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Hvar, Korcula, Dubrovnik, Patras, Igoumenitsa, and Dugi Otok.
