  • "Great crossing "

    We really enjoyed our night crossing from Palermo to Naples. The ferry was clean, staff were very helpful, we dined at the restaurant which was delicious and our cabin was perfect. It's a great way to travel and to wake up in the early morning seeing Naples appear.

  • "Great way to travel from Sicily to Naples!"

    Travelled to Sicily by train from the UK and took the boat back to Naples to make a 'round trip'. From arrival at the port to check in, everything was perfect! Easy check-in and walk across the dock to board the ship, welcomed aboard and found our comfortable, clean two-berth cabin with bathroom. Plenty of public accommodation space, enjoyed an evening meal in the restaurant and breakfast in the cafe with good coffee as the boat arrived into Naples. Excellent value for money considering the distance travelled and quality of overnight accommodation. Highly recommended.

  • "Lovely trip"

    I highly recommend this service. Prompt departure and arrival, surprisingly spacious and comfortable cabin (outside, ie with window), and an excellent meal in the restaurant. I can't speak for the cafeteria, didn't eat there. On a summer night under a bright moon, it was really very beautiful, and smooth as silk.

The Italian city of Palermo is located in the north west of Sicily, by the Gulf of Palermo in the Tyrrhenian Sea. The city has a reputation across the world for its history, gastronomy, culture and architecture with a its origins dating back over 2,700 years. Many visitors flock to the city and it has become Sicily's main hub for culture, commerce and tourism. The city's centre has many examples of fine palaces and churches which give way to areas whose way of life doesn't seem to have changed for centuries. This is perhaps most evident in the markets in Palermo, whose Arabic origins can still be seen today thanks to the noise, aromas, colours, narrow streets and with the excellent array of produce on offer and the general 'souk's atmosphere.

From the city's port, ferry services operate to destinations include Genoa, with a crossing time of 21 hours, Civitavecchia, 14 hour crossing time, Naples, 10 hours and 30 minutes, and Tunisia, 10 hours. It is recommended that foot passengers check in 1 hour prior to departure and vehicles 2 hours prior to departure. For all departures to Tunisia check in should be 4 hours prior to departure.

Napoli Guide

The Italian city of Naples is the largest city in southern Italy and is certainly one of the most beautiful, especially around the Bay of Naples. The city was founded by the Greeks and was later enlarged by the Romans all of which is reflected in the city's rich history and stunning architecture. Located to one side of Naples is Mount Vesuvius, and near to the bay are the picturesque islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida, all of which are located close enough for day trips departing from Naples.

The centre of Naples is quite compact and is full of palaces, spectacular churches, monasteries, convents and castles and is the perfect place to stroll around and marvel at the spectacle. Popular attractions are the Duomo, which is an ancient cathedral that dates back to the late 13th century and early 14th century. Also of interest is the Palazzo Reale, the Teatro San Carlo and the Museo Archeologico Nazionale, which is filled with some of the best archaeological exhibits in Italy. Finally, there is the Napoli Sotterranea which is a series of underground tunnels, stairs, rooms and halls that are right in the heart of the city.
