Igoumenitsa Guide

The Greek city of Igoumenitsa is located in the north west of Greece and is the capital of the Thesprotia region. The Greek island of Corfu lies a short distance across the Gulf of Igoumenitsa and is therefore a popular place to visit from the town. Igoumenista is surrounded by hills full of pine trees and is on an amazing coastal road lined with sycamores. The town's port is an important line between Greece and Italy and as a result attracts many tourists to its streets which are lined with beautiful buildings containing shops, cafes and restaurants. A pleasant way to spend a relaxing afternoon as by taking a slow lunch on the terrace in one of the city's restaurants.

The city was once an important town in the Kingdom of Thesprotis in the 4th century and was known as Titani. Following archaeological excavations, artefacts have been found showing there was a theatre and two temples in the town.

From the town's port ferries can be taken to Bari, Brindisi, Ravenna, Trieste, Venice, Kerkyra, Lefkimi and Paxi.

Ancona Guide

The Italian port city of Ancona is located in the Le Marche region of central Italy and has been gaining in popularity as a tourist destination over recent years thanks to its natural beauty and lovely gastronomy. The city lies on the Adriatic Sea coast, some 200 km from the city of Bologna and 280 km from the city of Rome, the Italian capital. The city's natural defences, located between the slopes of Monte Conero and Monte Astagno, made it a good location for the original settlers from Syracuse to defend. Greek merchants established a Tyrian purple factory in the city and their influence on the area is widespread. During Roman times the city had its own coin system and Greek was spoken throughout the area.

Ancona is a very important sea port and is well connected by its port to many other locations. The best and easiest way to reach Ancona is by ferry, which operate to destinations including Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Hvar, Korcula, Dubrovnik, Patras, Igoumenitsa, and Dugi Otok.
