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.
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.
20 Nov 2014Foot passenger
Brindisi is an interesting town to spend a few hours in before or after a sailing, but prospective foot passengers should note that there is no transport between the ferry port and the town - at least in the off season. On arrival, unless you're lucky and can find an expensive unofficial taxi, it's a fifty minute walk to the railway station, most of it through a sub-industrial wasteland.

15 Nov 2014Bad over night trip would have been nice to sleep
Booked over night crossing only offered a Pullman seat curtains on windows but why leave the spot lights on all night. Not able to sleep at all to make crossing nicer for paying customers they would like to sleep, make that area darker or soft lighting in night crossings.

28 Oct 2014It did the job.
Check-in was quick and problem-free. Boarding was no problem. The ship (Express Brindisi) is an old one, and public spaces are rather lack-lustre and utilitarian... the ship really has the feel of a cargo ferry... but most things worked. Also, watch out if walking on the upper deck! The non-slip paint isn't, and if there is dew or rain it is very slippery. We had animals, which were reasonably well accommodated. Our own cabin was comfortable and clean. Crew were helpful, except in the restaurant where they were disinterested. The food was not very interesting, but it was also inexpensive by ferry standards. The ferry was 3 hours late arriving, although the weather seemed OK... this caused us problems making our next day's itinerary. Not a memorable experience, but reasonably priced and it got us there. No real complaints.

The overall organization of Grimaldi lines is ok. The food served is regular but in face of values could be better. The most concern was the bathroom of the cabin - was not clean - and constantly with very bad smell.

20 Jul 2014Ok journey nothing special
Quite relaxing journey, although nothing to do on board - just a boring dining space to relax or the cabin. Cabin nice but had noisy air con all night, couldn't turn it off. Kept us awake. Arrived late into Brindisi.
