About Ancona

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.

About Split

Split, or Spalato in Italian, is the largest and most important city in Dalmatia and the second largest city in Croatia. Split is situated on a small peninsula on the eastern shores of the Adriatic Sea. Split is also known as one of the centres of Croatian culture. Split benefits from a warm, Mediterranean climate and is one of the sunniest places in Europe, attracting many visitors and making the city a popular tourist destination.

Split is one of the oldest cities in the area, dating back more than 1700 years, and has many historical sites. The old town of Split dates back to Medieval times, and is home to many of Split's attractions, such as Diocletian's palace. The historic centre of Split is listed as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

There are many interesting museums in Split, including the Museum of Croatian Archaeological monuments, the Ethnographic Museum, the Museum of Natural Science and the Museum of Maritime History. Split is also home to many art galleries such as the Mestrovic Gallery. Also worth visiting is the Marjan Forest Park, which comprises beautiful parkland, scenic paths, playgrounds and the Split zoo.

    • STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY AT ALL COSTS - It was dirty, dirty, and again dirty. No one wanted to speak English and the staff laughed at us. We booked a pink seating area that does not even exist on the boat! It looks like something that has been pulled from the bottom of the ocean and restored to sail again. Worst experience ever.

    overall a good experience
    • Lengthy queues to go through passport control, hard to believe that that couldn't have been handled better, a nice cabin, well appointed, OK food in the restaurant, but why did we have requests over the PA system to leave our cabin from 5.15AM onwards when weren't going to disembark until 7.30 - or 8 as it turned out? Would have liked the chance to sleep a bit longer! These are pretty small complaints in the scheme of things though, the ferry was one delightful part of a much longer journey.

    West European values clash with surly East European mediocrity.
    • On the one hand we got to Split in a timely fashion, however finding the terminal was a real trial and took us ages. The roads around the port are a nightmare as there is no effective signage and it is far from the SNAV berth. Fortunately we had an excellent lunch in the small restaurant upstairs in the terminal building, which we recommend and where we were made to feel welcome. In contrast, food and service on the boat was disappointing. By the time we got to dinner some options and all desserts had been exhausted, so we were unable to have the three courses we had paid for. The food was mediocre and barely warm. To add insult to injury I had to pay for a small pat of butter to go with my bread roll. Be warned that you must take all you want to eat at once, as you cannot go back for the next course. Customer service is notable by its absence. In all a disappointing experience which I doubt we will repeat. Next time we will travel to the Balkans down the East side of the Adriatic.

    Ancona to Split
    • Having read several reviews of this ferry journey, I approached my trip with great trepidation. However, although there was some confusion as to how to get the physical ticket to board the ferry, (I only had a confirmation number and image and printed receipt,) once aboard everything was great. The Croatian staff were very helpful, though they do everything in a very serious manner - possibly explaining why other travelers think they are unfriendly. I thought they were great. The cabin was simple, but very clean and adequate. The shower was hot and plentiful. I would not hesitate to use the same ferry service again. I really enjoyed the experience.
