"Crossing Venice - Igoumenitsa"
Ship sailed at pre-scheduled times which of course in no bad thing! Can't say that it was a luxury crossing though; cabin accommodation not overly desirable and the toilet was not working properly, little luxuries, pretty self-service restaurant, staff could be a little more friendly and helpful too. Boarding in Venice ok, but disembarkation of the ship when we arrived at Igoumenitsa wasn't very well supervised by the staff who seemed to have conflicting assignments handed out to them. Strange that on an international ferry these staff at the port didn't speak English / German or French either. Earlier experiences with Minoan Lines ensure that we will be back next time with them instead. This Anek Lines service is more of a cargo ship with passenger accommodation.

"Anek lines to Igoumenitsa, Greece"
Apart from the fact that the boat didn't depart in Venice but from a port on the mainland near Venice and the booking with Anek Lines is not exactly user-friendly and self-explanatory, the crossing, the ship and the service on the ship was good.

The city of Venice is located in the north east of Italy and lies on a group of 118 islands that are separated by canals and linked by a series of bridges. The city is situated in the marshy Venetian Lagoon which stretches along the shoreline, between the mouths of the Po and Piave rivers and derives its name from the ancient Veneti people who lived in the area around the 10th century BC. The city, perhaps one of the most famous in the world, is renowned for its beautiful architecture, its views and for its works of art. The city and lagoon have, unsurprisingly, been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The Venezia Ferry Terminal, Passeggeri, connects Venice to the mainland at the exit of the famous bridge, Ponte della Liberta. The new Venice Marittima Ferry Port Terminal provides a wide array of facilities including check-in desks, restaurants, shops, and many more services. The Terminal S Marta can be found in one of the port's oldest buildings and offers modern amenities including cafés, shops and other public facilities. The I S Basiliocan Terminal is where ferries from Croatian and northern Adriatic destinations arrive. Destinations available from the port include Mali Losinj, Pula, Porec, Rovinj, Igoumenitsa, Patras, Piran and Umag.
The Greek city of Igoumenitsa is located in the north west of Greece and is separated from the nearby island of Corfu by the Gulf of Igoumenitsa. The city was, until the second part of the 20th century, a small port whose residents were mainly employed in one way or another with the fishing industry. The majority of the city's buildings are post war as the city was badly damaged during the Second World War. With many of the buildings constructed in the 1960's -1980's there are not many sites of historical interest to see in the city.
Despite this there are some nice examples of modern office buildings lining the main street which stretches along the city's coastline. Most of the city's restaurants have terraces which enables diners to take in the lovely views of the coast whilst dining on fresh local produce. The best time to visit the city is between May and September as there is little rain and the temperatures are nice and warm. This enables visitors to explore the city and its surrounding countryside.
