Hi Dgouda

Yes it can be done - many years ago we drove often to Genoa from Scotland and one time did it in just over 24 hours including ferry trip.

Sorry for asking in case its personal.... But why dont you want to fly ?
It will be a hell of a journey to get in the Italian or French harbour and then you have 24 more hours to go on the boat ?

Thats not good news.
Think u first have to sort out w hat harbour you can get to by train. Marseille or Genua. From the station you probably need to get a taxi to the port. If you go on the boat you best book a private cabine for you and your daughter so you have a place to rest and sleep and shower. You could book also a seat but we were on the boat last year with our car and the public toilets were horrible and you can not leave you luggage alone...

Hi Becky hope that you and your daughter are both well! Sorry to hear that your daughter had an operation, hope that she gets better soon:)
