I would give everything 5 stars, but because everything can always be improved, I will give this experience a four and a half. Friendly staff, super delicious food at the restaurant and, unlike last year, both during the outward and return trip, there was a live performance at the bar. Compliments to the gentleman who performed on the return trip, on Tuesday 22nd of July, from Porto Torres to Genoa. I still doubt if it was not the real Eros Ramazzotti, in disguise. So no bad comments, excellent!

After our last crossing in 2013, we decided to travel with the same company from Sicily to Genoa in June. The restaurant was closed during the sailing, the swimming pool on board was empty and quite dirty, just like everywhere on board. We were quite sceptical about making another booking for July from Genoa to Sardinia and Grandi Navi Veloci offered the cheapest crossings. To our great surprise, the ship Toscana (a former ferry from Scandinavia and quite old) proved to be nice with several excellent restaurants, entertainment and bars on board. All this at very reasonable prices. Good service from motivated staff. The 4 berth cabin was quite small and the air conditioning went off at night but this did not spoil the fun. Disembarkation was somewhat later than planned but this wasn’t a problem because we were well-rested. De return trip with Tirrenia on the other hand was just the opposite.

The Italian city of Genoa lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast and is located in the Liguria region of Italy. The city's old town, which has a long and rich history in art, music, architecture and gastronomy was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2006. Additionally the city was declared the European Capital of Culture in 2004 and is also the birthplace of Niccolo Paganini and Christopher Columbus.
The maze of squares and narrow streets make up Genoa's historic centre. The city has influences of the medieval about it, along with 16th century and Baroque influences (San Matteo square and the ancient via Aurea, now via Garibaldi). Visitors can still see remains of the 17th century walls near to San Lorenzo Cathedral, which happens to be the most attended place of worship in Genoa.
