Split Ancona Ferry reviews

  • "Split to Ancona Ferry was a good idea."

    We chose to get a cabin and were surprised at the comfort of the bed and pillow. The cabin - as you would expect - is tiny and spartan, but it worked to get a good night's sleep while traveling. Recommend you bring your own food and drink - the bar tender gladly opened our bottle of wine for us. Even though our departure was later than scheduled our arrival was exactly on time.

  • "Very nice experience "

    I was very skeptical to take a 11 hr ferry to Italy. But this was just a pleasant surprise. Very comfortable and good facilities. Will choose it always again

  • "Enjoyable way to travel between Croatia & Italy !"

    We had a lovely journey from Split to Ancona on the ferry & highly recommend it to anyone deciding which way to travel. Friendly staff + ok food ( would have preferred it a bit hotter) & a cabin for the night.

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.

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.
