Camping on Board the Italy - Greece ferry crossings "Officially" ends for the season on the 31st October.

The smaller ferry companies operating on the short crossings Bari/Brindisi to Igoumenitsa/Patras usually allow/turn a blind eye to the use of the van on the crossing.

Agoudimos Lines http://www.agoudimos-lines.com/routeEN_01.asp
Bari to Igoumenitsa/Patras
Brindisi to Corfu/Igoumenitsa

Ventouris Ferries www.ventouris.gr
Bari to Corfu/Igoumenitsa

Endeavor Ferries (was Myway Ferries) http://www.ferries.gr Brindisi to Igoumenitsa/Patras

Don't ring/e mail the ferry companies as the head office will not admit they allow you to use your motorhome on the crossing in the winter.

Usually there is no need to book in advance just turn up at the port and buy your tickets there. There is plenty of room for overnight parking at Bari and Brindisi. At Brindisi you might have to park outside the port gates.
It's quite safe we have parked over night a couple of times.

If bad weather is forecast you will not be able to use the van on the crossing, you have the option of paying extra for a cabin or sitting it out at the port until the weather improves.

Sometimes there are reduced or cancelled sailings in January/February so be prepared.

A very good site for checking Mediterranean ferries is http://www.ferries.gr/

This info is current at 13th October 2007.

Safe travelling

On Board the ferry

For those interested this is what the Camper Deck looks like on the Agoudimos lines ferry from Brindisi to Igoumenitsa. This was taken early January 2006. Parked behind us is the four winds of Barry & Margaret Williamson of Magbaz Travels.

It does tend to get a bit more crowded in the high season. 8O
