Getting around Italy by ferry
How to get around Italy by traghetto (ferry) and aliscafo (hyrdofoil)
Italy has 5,275 miles of shoreline, a whole passel of islands—from giants like Sicily and Sardegna to smaller, popular vacation islands like Capri, Elba, and the Aeolians—some world-famous coastal regions (Amalfi Coast, Cinque Terre), and several large lakes.
That means, at some point, you will likely have to get into a boat to explore the best bits of Italy.
