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.

I'll get to posting more intel here soon, but for now, to the right are links to ferry info for getting popular islands and coastal spots, and below are some other key links you need:
