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 historic Italian port on the East Coast, Ancona offers frequent sailings to Greece, Montenegro, Albania and Croatia. All of these connections, including special offers, can be booked online with AFerry.
About the Ionian Islands
The Ionian Islands are situated off the west coast of Greece, and comprise the islands of Kefalonia, Kythira, Corfu, Zakynthos (Zante), Lefkada, Paxi and Ithaka. These beautiful Greek Islands have a rich and colourful history. The past occupation of the British and the French has given the islands a distinct feel that is quite different to the other Greek archipelagos.
The islands are famed for their clear blue waters, long beautiful sandy beaches enclosed by cliffs, quaint villages and a stunning countryside. Each Ionian island has it's very own unique charm and between them, they have everything you could possibly want from a holiday in the Greek islands. Why not try island hopping to capture the essence of each island?
