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.
Venice, in Northern Italy, is home to approximately 272,000 inhabitants, and is one of the most famous, and popular, tourist destinations in the world. Venice is made up of 118 small islands in the marshy Venetian Lagoon, which stretches between the Po and Piave rivers.
Venice is best known for its canals and waterways; which interlink the many small islands of Venice. However, there is more to Venice than water - Venice is home to some of the world's most beautiful and most-recognised buildings and architecture, such as St. Marks Basilica and the Torre dell'Orologio clock tower, which overlook St. Mark's Square.
Venice has also produced, and houses, some important art such as the Venetian paintings and sculptures that crowd the churches of Venice. Much of Venice's artwork can be seen in the many galleries in Venice, such as the enormous Palazzo Grassi and the Museo Correr, and is showcased each year in the Biennale di Venezia international festival.
Venice itself is one large tourist sight, one of the most breathtaking in the world. Visitors will enjoy simply admiring the views, and cruising along the Grand Canal discovering the beauty of this city.
07 May 2018Journey home in spite of Hellenic seamen's strike
We took this route because of a strike. The cabin was wonderful, very large, comfortable bed and plenty of hot water. The onboard food was tepid and very expensive and disappointing. I know it is not a fault of the ferry, but the journey from Venice across to Turin was horrendous, worse than the M1 on a busy day and for that reason we would avoid taking this route again.

05 May 2018Return in spite of Hellenic seamen's strike Patras to Venice
Took this route at the last minute due to strike. Given a very large cabin which was a plus. Found the food cold and disappointing compared with our outward journey from Bari to Ancona, and also very expensive. Shower curtain in the cabin was far too short and the whole room flooded - such a silly mistake!

28 Jul 2014Treated like dirty street dogs
A. The building on the address to collect our tickets was closed B. The 1st control they treat you like criminals! In black clothes they shine in your face with big lights and than shouting "Open!!", and then you have to guess them meaning the back trunk C. No signing at all on the quay D. That's where the real trouble begun, we were in the wrong line and were shouted at by the men in white clothes getting people on the ship like street dogs, some in English, but the obviously rude stuff in Greek. Then I told the man he can't speak like that to a paying customer. He kept yelling. And I didn't accept that. I got out the car and took a picture. He was furious and told us: I shall make you wait and control by the police and get on the ship the last or not at all. E. That's when it got really nasty, because there was a man in plain clothes saying he was police taking our passports and I made a film of him saying I want to see his ID. Then he got angry, called colleagues from coastguard, we were both arrested. 1st because I made a film, then because I was drunk suddenly (did not drink 1 drop), then because I had spat at the policeman in the face. All big lies by the Greek police! They can do anything to people because people at such times don't want to miss their boat or airplane (I experienced this kind of treatment once before in 2003 on the airport of Corfu). F. To make a long horrible story short: they let us choose between going to prison or miss the boat, pay parking money of 120 euro (corruption!) and get another ticket later that week (533 euro!). I said I wanted to go to prison. Again to make it short: Now they had a problem. Big harassment and stress and physical bruises, but we could go on the boat, but only after seeing the "captain" and they made us even apologize for "the problems we made"! Can you believe it? The atmosphere on board was like the rest of Greece in these days: dark and unfriendly. Greece has become a zombie-state in our eyes and we warn everybody to stay away there!

11 Oct 2013Wonderful experience
It was a near to perfect trip, departure and arrival dead on schedule, a friendly crew, a high level of cleanness and as an open deck passenger I was entitled to crash pretty much wherever I wanted to .... bravo Anek lines.

03 Oct 2013Ferry crossing was perfect facilities good but found the staff to be very unhelpful
Ferry crossing was perfect facilities good but found the staff to be very unhelpful and obnoxious and rude we were continually woken if we fell asleep in the lounge area with no cabins available 33 hours is a long time yet it was acceptable for other passengers to sleep in fire exits with sleeping bags and dogs also passengers with tents on the decks, passengers were also sleeping on the top of stairs with out being disturbed, we felt we were being victimised and harassed because we were British, as Greek and Italian passengers were not being harrased. The whole experience left a bitter taste .
