Jadrolinija’s ferry route between Zadar on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast and the Italian port city of Ancona is to return this summer after more than two years.
The ferry service between the nearest part of the Croatian and Italian coasts across the Adriatic Sea will launch on June 23 and operate until September 9, Zadarski.hr reported.
From June 23 to July 17 and from September 1 to 9, the ferry will operate once a week. The ferry will depart from Ancona on Thursday at 10 pm, and will arrive in Zadar on Friday at 7 am.
On the same day at 10 am the ferry from Zadar returns to Ancona, arriving at 5 pm.
From July 18 to August 18, when the highest traffic of the season is expected, the ferry will operate twice a week. It will depart from Zadar for Ancona on Mondays at 10 pm (arrival in Ancona on Tuesday at 7 am) and on Fridays at 10 am (arrival in Ancona at 5 pm).
Departures from Ancona to Zadar are scheduled for Monday at 10 am (arriving in Zadar until 6 pm), and Thursday at 10 pm (arriving in Zadar at 7 am).
