The main European tourists are travelling to Greece by ferry, sailing between Greek ports and ports in neighbouring Italy. There are daily routes from Italy to Patras and Igoumenitsa, to the ports of Ancona, Bari, Brindisi and Venice.
These routes are serviced with new “cruise ferries” that offer all modern comforts and speeds, while proper scheduling to Greece provide as many departures and arrivals as possible, thus giving tourists a wide selection to chose from. In order to better cover the ever increasing demand for mobile home transportation, shipping companies have scheduled ships with specially configured areas for campers and caravans (camping on board).
Travelling with ferry to Greece in a comfortable and sophisticated environment and experiencing their hospitality and modern services provides relaxation and pleasure at very reasonable prices. These ships offer various categories of cabins -from outside cabins with WC and shower to more economical inside cabins or deck- but in every instance your overnight stay is comfortable. They usually include air-conditioning, bar, restaurants and clothing stores, as well as satellite communications, video games and gambling (slot machines, casino, card rooms), pools, self-service facilities, disco, cinema, children’s playroom, escalators, camping on board, etc. Other than facilities for daily departures and the option to buy return ferry tickets, passengers are assured that they will arrive at their destination on time, while at the same time providing them with an extra vacation day.
