Ferry from Ancona to Split

Split is a picture-perfect city on the east shore of the beautiful Adriatic Sea in Croatia. Getting to Split from Ancona by ferry is undemanding. Connecting ferry port Ancona in Italy with the ferry port Split in Croatia, the ferry route is served by ferries from Snav and Jadrolinija companies. The Snav and Jadrolinija ferries take approximately 11 hours to cover the 147 miles (237 km) journey from Ancona to Split. Boats depart every day from Ancona to Split with over ten ferry services each week. During the peak season, which starts in summer, there are more ferry services, and the fare is usually more than in the low season. The best part is that travelers can travel with their furry friends and also board in their car. Travelers only need to book in advance and indicate the make, model, length, and height of your vehicle and acquire a boarding card that will allow their pet to tag along.

The Jadrolinija ferries operate ferry services from Ancona to Split throughout the year, with at least two or three sails a week in winter or spring and autumn, respectively.

The ferry departs from the Ancona ferry port in the evening and arrives in the Split ferry port in the morning hours, taking approximately 11 hours.

The Snav service operates seasonally, from mid-April to early October, and takes 11 hours to reach the Split ferry port, and makes a stop at the Island of Hvar in July and August. Onboard both the Snav and Jadronilija ferries travelers enjoy facilities such as self-service snack shops, restaurants, pubs, and cinemas to give them a comfortable and enjoyable trip.

What do you need to know before traveling by ferry from Ancona to Split?

Departure port: The port of Ancona handles an enormous number of passengers, cruise ships, and is one of the busiest traveler ports in the Adriatic ocean. The terminal provides an array of services such as cafes, shops, access to toilet facilities, and metropolitan public transport networks. For travelers with cars, there are excellent parking facilities in the port both for long- and short-term stays. The terminal is located very close to the bus and railway station and about 20 minutes' drive from the Airport. Several trains and buses depart frequently from both the railway and bus stations heading to the Ancona ferry port. Alternatively, if you don't have heavy luggage, you can take a walk to the port.

Arrival port: The Split ferry port is located in a small peninsula on the eastern shores of the Adriatic Sea and is close to the city Centre. Transport to the central city includes the use of public buses, tourist buses, or taxis. Cruise lines also provide shuttle bus services from the terminal to the city Centre. The cheapest means is to travel by the public buses as the cabs are quite expensive. A walk to the city is an equally viable option as you survey the splendor of the Croatian Islands.
