Ferries from Italy to Montenegro

About Italy:

Italy is home to the greatest number of UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the world. Together with Greece, it is known as the birthplace of Western culture.

Full of high art and monuments, almost every small village in Italy offers a few interesting locations. From the Roman ruins, Byzantine cities and Renaissance masterpieces to cobblestone streets, beautiful churches and wide variety of stunning beaches, Italy is a place that provides rare experiences that can never be overrated.

Italy is the ideal departure country for those travelling by ferry with numerous amazing destinations, many of them domestic on offer. With so many miles of coastline and famous islands to choose from, the list of destinations is truly unrivalled. In terms of international travel, Italy is connected to almost all of the countries in the Adriatic Sea as well as featuring numerous links to Greece, Tunisia and Spain.

The short island crossings are usually made with small passenger vessels while the longer international journeys are operated by luxurious cruise ferries.

About Montenegro:

Montenegro is a Balkan country in southeast Europe, with a relatively short coastline facing the Adriatic Sea to the southwest.

Given its name translates to ‘black mountain’, it comes as no surprise Montenegro has some jaw dropping scenery. Dark, rugged terrain and gorgeous water inlets comprise most sights, and the coastline is one of the crowning jewels of the Adriatic, with picturesque cities and stunning stretches of sand.

Steeped in history and lauded by UNESCO, Kotor is a medieval, fortified town perching on the edge of the namesake bay, offering some of the country’s most impressive backdrops. Budva is another tourist favourite, known for its incredible nightlife, even better beaches and red-roof houses. Finally, the capital, Podgorica is the economic and cultural hub, boasting a lovely mix of Turkish, Roman and modern architecture.

Sailing across the Adriatic Sea is a popular way of exploring the Balkans, particularly from Italy. The Italian ‘heel’ lies opposite Montenegro to the southwest and there are regular ferry crossings from Bari to the small Montenegrin seaport of Bar, in the south.
