Italy has long been known as a place full of great cuisine, history, culture and fashion. Whether you prefer spending time admiring the work of Da Vinci and Michelangelo or making up the thousands in attendance at a packed coliseum, Italy has something to offer everyone. As a place surrounded by serene water, Italy is particularly popular with holidaymakers who use ferries to get from A to B.
If you like travelling aboard ferries, you are spoiled for choice when it comes to selecting a port. To name but a few, the cities of Genoa, Civitavecchia, Amalfi and Naples can all by reached by jumping on board a luxury ferry. Before you pull up in Italy, you can be entrained by movies and live acts while also remaining refreshed at the bar or well fed in the restaurants.
From the south of Italy, millions of tourists catch ferries every year in order to get to the cities in Greece, Albania, Turkey and Croatia. If you are on Sicily, it is possible to be even more adventurous and journey as far as north Africa. Although there is more than enough to enjoy in Italy, north Africa can provide a stark alternative and to the Mediterranean area and is commonly enjoyed by European tourists.
Further north in Italy is the stunning city of Bari which, funnily enough, also has a bustling port where ferries leave from each and every day. From Bari, you are able to visit plenty of areas in the Balkans with numerous cities in Croatia such as Stari Grad, Dubrovnik and Split there to be visited with companies such as Superfast Ferries and Agoudimos Lines.
The second most popular port for tourists visiting Italy is found in the city of Civitavecchia. Two million passengers congregate here each year before later boarding ferries to Sardinia and Cagliari and there are several travelling times for you to choose from throughout the day.
