Rome to Ancona (train), Ancona to Split (ferry)

I am traveling from Rome to Ancona by train on September 24 (2011) to catch the ferry to Split. What time should I plan to arrive in Ancona in order to check-in and board the ferry for the overnight trip to Split? With many train options, I want to depart Rome as late as possible in the morning/early afternoon to arrive in Ancona. Is the train station near the Ancona port?

Also - I am looking at booking the ferry (Blue-line) and with so many seating/room options, I am not sure if there is any advice for the overnight trip based on experience? Is booking a suite worth it?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

first of all look at any trenitalia schedule for the day you wish to travel and check times.

from memory the Blue line departs at 8.30 to 9.00 ......usr this site www.viamare.com so getting into ancona about an hour and a half is the finest you can cut it.

If you can stand the hassel you can sleep in the seats......other than that we took the cabin inside with a washstand/toilet and used the shared shower which was Ok.

have a small trip log if you wish to message me.
