Ferry from Milano (Ancona) to Portas (for Athens) that's covered by the Global Pass?

We need to travel from Milan to Athens, I've figured out that I need a ferry from Ancona to Portas. Which one is covered by the Eurail Global Pass-Flexi? Trying to map out our plans ahead of time.

  • I've found that I may be able to do the Superfast ferry from Venice to Portas, but still having problems. Upcharge for a cabin, correct?

    Hi Judith,

    The Eurail Global Pass does cover passage on the 'Superfast Ferries' from Ancona to Patras.

    If purchased for 1st class, the pass would allow you free open-air seats. If the pass is 2nd class, you would be granted free deck passage.

    If you wish to have an actual sleeping cabin on one of these ferries, a reservation would be required at an additional cost. With a Eurail Pass, reservations for sleeping cabins would just have to be made by contacting 'Superfast Ferries' directly. Their website is www.superfast.com. I believe you click 'Partnerships' and then 'Sail & Rail'. If you have questions, you can also email helpdesk@attica-group.com or helpdesk@anek-superfast.com.

    There are also additional surcharges for these ferries. These include a seasonal surcharge in June and September of €10 per person, and €20 per person in July and August, as well as port taxes of €7 per person. A fuel surcharge may also apply.

    Check-in time for this ferry is 2 hours before departure.

    For the Eurail Global Pass itself, you would click here: https://www.raileurope.com/pass/eurail-global-pass-5880.

    Milan to Ancona

    Connections from Milan to Ancona take around 3.5 hours in duration and involve changing trains once in Bologna along the way.

    From Milan to Bologna, you would take a high-speed Frecciarossa train on which reservations are required as a supplement to a rail pass.

    From Bologna to Ancona, you would take either a Frecciabianca high-speed train or an IC train.

    For travel with a rail pass, you would purchase reservations by searching a route on our homepage (www.raileurope.com), checking the box that says ‘I have a rail pass’, and then indicating the type of rail pass with which you'll be traveling (i.e. a ‘Eurail Global Pass’). For a route from Milan to Ancona, you would just have to piece together the connection by doing a separate search for each segment. Therefore, you would do one search for trains from Milan to Bologna and another search for connecting trains from Bologna to Ancona.

    Generally, these trains can be reserved within 120 days of an intended departure date.

  • But I can depart from Venice instead of Ancona, correct? Taking the train from Milan to Venice instead of Ancona?
