Ferries to Albania

The proximity of Italy’s southern coasts to Albania allows ferries to connect cities such as Bari and Ancona with Albanian ports. The main ports are Durres in the north of the country and Vlora in the south, with ferry routes running all year round, especially from Bari to Durres. Arriving by ferry, either as a passenger or with a car, is an option, although it’s a good idea to study the journey times to plan your trip.
