The Ancona (Italy) based ferry company Adria Ferries s.p.a has announced that from July 9 will operate on a new route between Italy and Montenegro.

This is responding to the growing interest in the Balkan country, which is developing rapidly in terms of hotel accommodation and tourist services.

The new ferry connection is between Ancona in Italy and Bar in Montenegro, and vice versa, and it will be guaranteed with departures from both ports on a biweekly basis, as Adria Ferries informs.

The opening of the new route is the result of strong synergy that has developed over the past few months between the Government of Montenegro, the Embassy of Italy in Montenegro, and Adria Ferries s.p.a.

The “AF Mia”, a cruise ferry that joined the Adria Ferries fleet in December 2023, will operate on the Ancona – Bar route.

The ship can accommodate more than 1,500 passengers and has approximately 200 cabins, all equipped with WC and shower.

Among these, there are 14 suites with king size beds, 12 of which are located on the upper deck and completely renovated as of May 2024.

The “AF Mia” also features a reclining seat lounge and spacious common areas that ensure a comfortable journey for all types of passengers. There are also cabins specifically designed for traveling with pets, and cabins equipped for the transport of persons with reduced mobility (PRM).

“AF Mia’s” service offerings include a duty-free shop, four bars, two restaurants and an area dedicated to children.
