Ancona became one of the major ports of the Adriatic between the thirteenth and fourteenth century, second only to Venice. However, in later years Ancona, like other Italian towns, became the scene of many battles connected to the wars of independence, and was also the target of foreign occupations, including the massive air bombing campaigns during World War II, which destroyed whole areas of Ancona, and badly damaged the port.
A settlement can be dated back at least 4,000 years where the centre of modern day Patras now stands. However, despite this ancient heritage, Patras is very much a modern city: it was the first city in Greece to introduce electric trams and was named European Capital of Culture in 2006.

09 Jul 2016Expensive cabins and poor wifi
The overall booking and check in process was good however, when you compared the cost of the cabin it was two times the cost of the ferry. It was 247 euros and the last ferry trip only days earlier on another ferry was £85 for a 24 hour trip. When I was on board I again questioned the cost and it was the same 247 euros and there were spare cabins and after talking to several people in the restaurant they would not pay this amount out of principle so these cabins were left and not used. Surely from a business prospective it would have been better to drop the price and sell out all the cabins.The other issue was the wifi, it was very poor and not worth the money as I failed to send some important emails to work, this needs to be looked at. Apart from that most of the staff were very friendly except the people at the reception especially the lady who was very impolite and needs customer relation training. I will be happy to use this service again and also recommend it to others.

04 Jul 2016Average ferry, average service
Older ferry, average or below average in just about everything. Needs to be well cleaned. Service not that great though you can understand it given the feral nature of summer ferry passengers. But, really, you would think that someone would remove those sleeping at the entrance of the deck or restaurant. And frankly waiters should not be calling out to one another in the restaurant. But we got there safe, which ultimately is what counts.

14 Oct 2014Sue's trip to Athens
Very relaxing, plenty of room to roam about in, choice of bars/restaurants all good. Views gently slipping by, in amongst the Greek Islands as we made our way towards Patras. Ship not too crowded. The reclining chair zone was also not too busy, so I could sleep full-length on the floor, with my sleeping bag. Would have preferred the arrival time to be stated as local, had a strange hour at the bus station one hour behind everybody else!
