“Maritime traffic in the port is strengthening both in terms of passengers handled and ship calls” said Rodolfo Giampieri, head of the local port authority. “Being positioned at the heart of the Adriatic Sea and the Adriatic-Ionian macro-region is a key factor for the port to play a central role on the maritime links to and from the Balkans”.
