Brindisi in Italy's Apulia region in Italy's heel is easy to reach by car and one of the most popular ports for ferries for Greece and its Ionian islands including Corfu. Due to i'ts natural harbour, Brindisi has long been one of Italy's most important ports, however, Brindisi is also well worth a visit.
Brindisi has a long history and actually belonged to Greece until the middle of the third century. Today, the centre is home to the impressive fortress built by Emperor Frederick II as well as wide, palm-tree lined boulevards, a redeveloped seafront promenade with restaurants and bars, stunning Baroque churches and a cathedral. So if you were thinking of spending a few days here before or after you ferry journey, don't hesitate.
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.

A Faultless travel experience. I would recommend a cabin and business breakfast. Well worth the extra money as 17 hours at sea is a long time. Check in was easy, just be patient as there is some hanging around to load onto the boat. There are basic facilities while waiting such as a snack coffee bar and toilets. All staff at the port and onboard where friendly and helpful.

Food was overpriced. Cabin was dirty, they cleaned after asking.Suitable for truckdrivers, not if you want to enjoy crossing.

My Greek partner & I off to Keffalonia. Haven't visited Greece since 70's. We discovered the ferry is principally for lorry drivers. Plenty of room to sleep across seats as few passengers. Food was poor. Nothing very healthy. Much smoking in common lounge despite notices not to do so. Ferry delayed at 1 port by hours due to stuck anchor. Made our connection difficult and cost us a taxi for speed - 90 euros. Staff were pleasant however they failed to provide any update on delays and progress. Suggest take own food for overnight trip.

01 Jul 2014Sorry Grimaldi Lines but not very impressed
On the way to Patra the Boat set off two hours later than should be, the staff Were constantly using the on board intercom so not much sleep for us. The cabin card was not working so every time we needed to be in the cabin staff had to digitally configure lock. The restaurant and bar didn't have a good choice of food available and also not much given on plate,The food was also very expensive (the truckers though managed to get a better treatment to my eyes). The return trip was still delayed approx two hours again but we ended up having a better sleep (less announcements on intercom). The cabin carpet was very dirty, the food was shocking again with the breakfast to be even worst. On both trips people aloud by the bar staff to smoke in the bar area (even with no smoking signs displayed)

31 May 2014Getting from A to B with the least trouble
The day prior to our departure, we attempted to upgrade our booking to a cabin but was unable to do so online. A travel agent in Brandisi said we had to go to the port, some distance away. The cab fare was 40 Euros return and the Grimaldi Agent seemed to take great delight telling us the ship was full. The next day we arrived at the port, there was no boarding announcement and the walk to the ferry was about a mile (30+ heat). When we boarded we were upgraded through the purser even though your agent had reiterated that the ship was full. The onshore customer relations was non existent in Brandisi and in Patras we were not informed that there was a shuttle bus from ship to terminal until a young guy who was a previous customer informed us. Overall your customer relations stinks and I have had better service in the Philippines and Italy and Greece are supposed to be first world countries, Next time I will travel by plane.
