For me, it's now Ancona- unless you are already down in/near Brindisi which I am unlikely to be again. Choices choices!
That's alright mate. I alway's use that crossing. Because. One it's about the same price as crossing the channel. If the get the night crossing it's about 12 hour's. Hell it's 12 hours what ever time of the day you cross. But you can get your head down on the boat. So that's one less night that you have to find a place to sleep. Take that off of the price of the crossing, and it's dirt cheap. I always try and take on some drink and food. Captive custom's so the price's are a bit high. The crossing to Igoumenitsa drop's you off at the right place. IE. From there just about any where is with in a day's distance riding. From May onwards the weather is something to write home about. With the coast road, just about the same. The down side is it's about three day's to get there from the UK. But apart from that a good Start to any holiday.
To buy petrol in Europe. Pull up at station. Wait. Get out a 20 Euro note, then ask someone to fill up the bike. Give person money. Ride away. Simple.
