Napoli Palermo Ferry reviews

  • "Easy & Comfortable"

    We booked a cabin for our overnight trip & were pleasantly surprised by how spacious & comfortable it was. I'd recommend grabbing a bite to eat as quickly as you can once on board.

  • "Naples to Palermo and back"

    Took a ferry from Naples to Palermo and back on late September 2016. Easy boarding and disembarking. Nice on board restaurant. Had a 4 berth cabin with sea view and we were very pleased with the cleanliness and comfort of it. The ferry arrived with a slight delay in both directions, but both times we were out of the port before 8:00.

  • "A nice alternative to stay overnight "

    This was the first time to stay overnight in a ship in Italy, which was nice and confortable. We booked a 1st class cabin and could sleep well. It was a nice alternative to travel overnight with a nice situation instead of train or bus journey. Apart from the nice experience, I have to ask you to improve your booking system on the web. I booked two routes on the very same day because I found I misplaced an order from Naple to Palermo istead of the vice versa. After I replaced the new order, my former booking on my page disappered and I could not cancel the misplaced order. That is to say, I had to pay double. It's not also good that I could not find any way to do under this situation on your page.

  • "Two night ferries - Napoli-Palermo-Napoli"

    Good service. I chose deck and the possibility to sleep comfortably in the bar, which is also open all night, is good. One suggestion: to add to the ferri a container for left baggage, optional for 1 Euro, so one does not need to guard the baggage if travelling alone. More convenient and safe. Ferries in Greece have that arrangement, and it's very good.

Napoli Guide

The Italian city of Naples, or Napoli as it is also called, is located in the Campania region of the country and lies on the Gulf of Naples, on southern Italy's west coast. The city is located in an enviable position between two volcanic areas, Mount Vesuvius and the Campi Flegrei. The Roman ruins of Pompeii, Herculaneum, Oplontis and Stabiae, which were destroyed the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, are located close to the city as is the city of Sorrento and the beautiful Amalfi Coast. Also located close to Naples are the former parts of the Roman naval facility of Portus Julius, namely the port towns of Pozzuoli and Baia which are both to the north of Naples. The city is adorned with medieval, Baroque and Renaissance churches, castles and palaces and has long been an important centre for the arts and architecture. In the 18th century, Naples went through a period of neoclassicism, following the discovery of the remarkably intact Roman ruins of Herculaneum and Pompeii.

The port of Naples is home to several ferry, hydrofoil and SWATH (Small Waterplane Area Twin Hull) catamaran services, linking numerous locations in both the Neapolitan province, including Capri, Ischia and Sorrento, and the Salernitan province, including Salerno, Positano and Amalfi. Ferry services also operate to Sicily, Sardinia, Ponza and the Aeolian Islands.

Palermo Guide

The city of Palermo is located on the Italian island of Sicily and lies on the island's north west coast and has a large and strategically important natural port, next to the Monte Pellegrino. The city is typically Mediterranean and can trace its history back to the 8th century and is today known for its Norman buildings, fabulous palaces and the hustle and bustle of its markets. Palermo's historic centre is the Quattro Canti district, which means 'Four Corners' and is where a number of the city's most spectacular attractions can be found. These include the Royal Palace and the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta. The cathedral's sheer size and lovely architecture really needs to be seen to be fully appreciated. Also popular in the city is the medieval Basilica of San Francesco d'Assisi and the 12th century Castello della Zisa. For visitors who enjoy the performing arts there is also the Teatro Massimo which is a recently refurbished theatre that puts on regular performances.

Ferries from the city's port depart to Genoa, Civitavecchia, Naples and Tunisia.
