    First time with virtu feries
    • Overall the quality is perfect but i have to thinks to point out. The price for the car is expensive. Also the temperature was extremely low having result of me and the children catching a cold. I think the temperature should be at a more resonable level (24 -26) degrees

    Seamless crossing on very comfortable ferry
    • The crossing over to Pozzallo went really smoothly and couldn't fault it at all - however ONCE WE GOT TO POZZALLO PORT WE WERE HOUNDED BY TAXI DRIVERS TRYING TO FORCE US TO PAY OVER-THE-TOP PRICES FOR A JOURNEY TO SYRACUSE - they tried to charge us and two otherladies 145 EUROS!!!!! YOU WOULD BE WISE TO TELL TRAVELLERS ON YOUR FERRY ABOUT THIS AS IT WAS INTIMIDATING WITH THEM FOLLOWING US AROUND THE TOWN BADGERING US TO BOOK THEM Quote .. THERE ARE NO TRAINS TODAY, THEYRE ON STRIKE... IT'S BETTER YOU TAKE A TAXI ... unquote!!!! Eventually we DID take a taxi at 20 each with the two Argentinian ladies we'd met. We would never take a ferry to Pozzallo again, preferring a ferry to a larger place such as Catania or Palermo.
