Grimaldi Lines

The Group's strategy of opening new passenger routes in the Western Mediterranean is a demonstration of how creativity can apply in establishing innovative maritime links. The most evident example is the set of services linking Rome (Civitavecchia) and Livorno to Barcelona, the latter launched in 2007. In particular, the Rome (Civitavecchia) / Barcelona daily - except Sunday - link is served by two of the largest and fastest cruise ferries in the world, able in less than 20 hours to carry thousands of passengers and hundreds of cars and trailers between the Mediterranean's two biggest coastal markets.

Rome (Civitavecchia) has been established by the Group as the main hub for passenger traffic, with services several times a week to Sardinia, Sicily, Tunisia and Spain.

The Group offers maritime links to some of the most popular tourist destinations. The North Western coast of Sardinia (Porto Torres) is directly linked to the port of Civitavecchia and to the whole of Central Italy in just seven hours. Other line connects Sicily: Palermo is linked to Salerno, effectively removing the need to take the long, congested and dangerous Salerno/Reggio Calabria motorway.

There are regular departures from the ports of Palermo, Salerno and Civitavecchia to Tunis in order to carry passengers and freight between the two countries. Furthermore, the Group launched its first maritime service to Morocco, offering weekly departures from Livorno (Italy) and Barcelona (Spain) to Tangiers.

Finally, as from 2012 the Group offers a daily connection between Brindisi, Igoumenitsa and Patras (Greece).
