The cargo port of Tangier-Med is located around 40 km to the east of the city of Tangier in Morocco. The port opened in 2007 and is one of the largest ports in the Mediterranean and in Africa. The second phase of the port's development began in 2009 in order to meet the increasing demand for the port's services. The port also deals with passenger traffic which is accommodated in the new passenger terminal, which replaced the city of Tangier port as the destination for ferries arriving from Europe. Facilities in the new terminal include a bureau de change, a small shop, a cafe and ATM's.
Tangier's history has been influenced by the many different civilisations and cultures that have ruled the city since the 5th century BC. Between the period of being a strategic Berber town and then a Phoenician trading centre to the independence era around the 1950s, Tangier was a refuge for many cultures. In 1923, Tangier was considered as having international status by foreign colonial powers, and became a destination for many European and American diplomats, spies, writers and businessmen.
The port city of Genoa is located in the Liguria region of Italy and lies on the Mediterranean Sea coast. Genoa's historic centre is a maze of narrow alleys that open up onto small squares and is where visitors can't fail to appreciate the history and culture that embodies the city. Architecturally there are many different styles sitting side by side with a medieval wall acting as a base for a 14th century building on Gothic loggias. Genoa really is a place where the past literally forms the foundations of the present.
The city's old port, redesigned by Renzo Piano in 1992, is a popular draw for tourists who go there to take in all the sites the old port area has to offer. A popular site located close to the pier is the city's lighthouse where lovely views of Genoa and its Gulf can be had.
Genoa's ferry terminal is located in the Calata Chiappella and ferries depart towards Sardinia, Sicily, Corsica, Spain, Tunisia and Morocco. The terminal building has all of the usual passenger facilities and is also wheelchair friendly.
