The Port of Igoumenitsa
The port of Igoumenitsa is a fundamental seaport both from a commercial and tourist point of view. The A2 Egnatia Odos motorway (in honor of the ancient Via Egnazia), which starts just outside the port area, allows, in fact, agile land connections with Turkey, Macedonia and Bulgaria.
From a tourist point of view, however, the port of Igoumenitsa is connected with some of the main Italian ports of the Adriatic (Bari, Brindisi, Ancona and Venice), as well as with nearby Corfu, the other Ionian islands and Patras. Ships to / from Italy depart from the New Port which is located in the southern area of the port. On the contrary, ferries for inland destinations leave from the Old Port in the north.
Therefore a fundamental connection bridge with the Balkans, Italy and the rest of Greece. This was also possible thanks to the modernization of the port area (approx. 210 hectares) which today, among the many services, has a modern passenger terminal with waiting room, shops, restaurants and luggage storage.
