Ferries to Italy

What Ferries travel to Italy?

There a wide range of ferries that go to Italy currently, from over 28 destinations, and with over 350 routes available, there’s no shortage of choice. Indeed, there are around 12706 ferries sailing a week to multiple ports in Italy from a variety of destinations, such as Croatia, Sicily, Greece, the Aeolian Islands, and even with Italy itself; and with over 31 ferry operators, all of whom have spacious and modern fleets, choosing your perfect journey to Italy has never been easier here at Direct Ferries.

What time is the Ferry to Italy?

The sheer number of ferries that sail to Italy on a weekly basis from such a wide number of ports, means that there is no one time, especially as the ferries are heading to an assortment of ports throughout Italy. Indeed there are up to 2526 ferries a week just within Italy itself, with 6558 ferries sailing from the Aeolian Islands a week, and many other sailings too, such as the 1163 ferries a week from Sicily, 58 a week from Albania, and 64 a week from the Tremiti Islands. This wide variety of ferry sailings a week, combined with the fact that ferry schedules can change due to times of year, there is no one specific schedule here, but we will always give you the best options when you are making your booking, to make sure that you have the best ferry experience.

How much does the Italy Ferry cost?

Again, the volume of ferries that sail to Italy on a weekly basis means that there is no one cost that can be given, especially as fares can also be affected by what time of year you are travelling, what route you are travelling, and how you are travelling, either with your car or by foot. We therefore recommend checking out our helpful fare finder tool to find the best route for the best price for you, and be sure to sign up to our email newsletter to be the first to hear about our latest deals and offers.

Can I take my car on the Ferry to Italy?

Of the 31 ferry operators that offer ferries to Italy, 15 of them do not allow you to bring your car with you when sailing with them, although the remaining 16 do allow you to bring your car with you. Because of this, we recommend checking that your route and operator supports cars before making your booking, and all the information you need can be found on the fare finding page.

  • "excellent service"

    We booked the ferry a few weeks prior to travelling as we wanted to be sure to catch the right ferry at the right time and avoid the queues at the ticket station. Timing was important as we were coming into Napoli on a cruise ship and we wanted to visit Sorrento. We needed to be sure the ferry back was timed in order to arrive back in time to re joining the ship. Everything went according to plan and the service was excellent. This is the second time we have done this and would highly recommend this method of visiting Sorrento.

  • "Ischia to Napoli 10th Septembet 8.40am"

    One of your crew saved me and a few other stray passengers by seeking us out at the wrong dock... I would have missed my flight at great stress and expense. Thank you for your care. It was a very quick and smooth journey! Grazie.
