Stuff to See and Do


Getting Around


by Kluft about 10 years ago

Try taking the ferry from Italy to Greece. They travel from Bari, Ancona, Brindisi, or Venice Italy. To Corfu, Igoumenitsa, or Patras and vice versa. All ferries are atleast one night and there are different companies for each route with different times. If you have a Eurail pass it will cover part or all of your ticket, but will only give a ticket for the deck which means no bed or room, so be prepared.
