    Seamless crossing on very comfortable ferry
    • Malta to Pozzallo with Virtu Ferries

      The crossing over to Pozzallo went really smoothly and couldn't fault it at all - however ONCE WE GOT TO POZZALLO PORT WE WERE HOUNDED BY TAXI DRIVERS TRYING TO FORCE US TO PAY OVER-THE-TOP PRICES FOR A JOURNEY TO SYRACUSE - they tried to charge us and two otherladies 145 EUROS!!!!! YOU WOULD BE WISE TO TELL TRAVELLERS ON YOUR FERRY ABOUT THIS AS IT WAS INTIMIDATING WITH THEM FOLLOWING US AROUND THE TOWN BADGERING US TO BOOK THEM Quote .. THERE ARE NO TRAINS TODAY, THEYRE ON STRIKE... IT'S BETTER YOU TAKE A TAXI ... unquote!!!! Eventually we DID take a taxi at 20 each with the two Argentinian ladies we'd met. We would never take a ferry to Pozzallo again, preferring a ferry to a larger place such as Catania or Palermo.
