Please note that the information provided is correct to the best of our knowledge at the time we have received the same information from the Ferry Operators. The situation is changing rapidly and we will try to keep the website updated as soon as we receive updates from the ferry companies.
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.
Some of the beaches in Corfu have been awarded with the European Blue Flag. The coastline is about 135 miles long including capes. The highest point is Pantokrator Mountain (2,972 ft).
Corfu town, the capital of the island, is a labyrinth of medieval cobblestone streets dominated by the 16th century fortress. Corfu's Old Town and Old Port areas are well endowed with tavernas.

03 Oct 2012One way ferry crossing from Venice to Corfu
Our expectations exceeded by: 1) We were given 4 berth cabin, therefore more space, even though there were only 2 of us. 2) Food at restaurant well above standard. Unfortunately, we were not so impressed with the self service cafe. All other cafe/ bars were fine. Overall, we were more than satisfied and found the staff helpful and courteous.

24 Sep 2011Anek - not the best ferry company if you want to go to Corfu
Anek Lines? Firstly the ferry didn't leave from the port in Venice where it was supposed to leave from, but one about 5 km away. We had to follow in a confused convoy to the actual departure point. We left 2 hours late. The boat was packed, crowded and parking the car on board was a stressful matter, not an orderly process. It was obvious the ferry had been overbooked since it only just managed to squeeze all the cars, trucks and people on board. The car were parked jig-saw fashion to make extra space, and literally just inches apart. Sleeping on this 26 hour journey was almost impossible unless you had booked a cabin. You were not permitted to sleep in the bars and if you did fall asleep, even at 4 am, an irate member of staff would come and wake you up. On what should have been arrival time at Corfu the ferry by-passed the island and went first to mainland Greece to drop of the heavy goods vehicles, meaning a delay of a further 2 hours before disembarkation in Corfu. Having had no sleep for almost 48 hours I had another 1 hour drive to my island destination. Luckily, it was just an hour. I discarded my Anek tickets for my return journey. If I was going to have a minimum 6 hour drive to Switzerland, following my return and with no sleep, this was far too risky. I booked my return, despite the additional expense on the Minoan Line ferry, and the trip was far more relaxing, plus despite booking last minute, as a driver, I was allocated somewhere to sleep. I will not be travelling on Anek Lines ever again. The big difference was that Anek was crewed mainly by Greeks, who were frankly officious and not very friendly or cooperative, whilst the Minoan Line ferry was crewed mainly by Italians who were just great and couldn't do enough to keep you happy. My overall advice would be, to book on Minoan. Despite being more expensive, the whole experience will provide a much better start and finish for your journey, especially if it'a a holiday and you want to arrive in a good mood. Plus, if you are driving, you will be much safer if you can get a good nights sleep.

12 Jul 2011good value for money
Good value for money. Generally everything is of good standard, cabins large, well equiped. Loading at Venice on Lefki Ori was long & confused with our car waiting thinking we were not getting on . Bar waitress on return trip Sofoklis V was chewing gum & did not notice when you wanted a drink.

07 Jul 2011Could be so easily improved
Terrible long queue for check-in (how much would it cost to add one more person dealing with this?), staff doing everything very, very slowly as some kind of defense mechanism to prevent themselves getting rattled. You stand in this queue with an email from A-Ferry, not knowing if that email constitutes a ticket and whether you should be in the "Tickets" line or the "Check-in" line and whether on finally reaching the front you are going to be told to go to the back of the other queue. Then there's a shambolic mustering system for the vehicles for the ferry (the staff put me in the Minoan queue then I realised the Anek ferry was on another dock round the corner and luckily, on a bike, could move). A few moveable signs on the dock on stands saying "Minoan Corfu" or "Anek Corfu" would end the confusion in the click of a finger. The whole embarkation process is far more stressful than it needs to be. On the boat, apart from in the serviced restaurant and one of the reception staff, the crew were totally unsmiling and surly. Maybe they get a lot of unpleasant, perhaps drunk, passengers, but also have they forgotten that the best way to make people behave better is to charm them, not treat them with contempt? Food is what you'd expect on a ferry. The cabin was immaculate. Ferry left and arrived on time and the basic ticket for me and the motorbike, at seventy-something pounds, is really good value. Everything that's wrong with this service could be addressed in a day by the management and the experience would be transformed.
