  • "Absolutely wonderful"

    The ferry from Porec in Croatia to Venice was fantastic. Very well organized, comfortable and helpful. Many languages were spoken. We were offered a full tour service of venice during the boat trip which we took. This was also extremely good. As our time in Venice was short, the tour made sure we didnt miss the important things like a Gondala ride and a boat trip down the Grand Canal. I cannot recommend it highly enough. t highly enough.

    The ship left exactly on time both in the morning and in the evening. The return trip arrived 30 minutes ahead of the time stated in the email, which was a nice surprise. Overall, it was a great experience and I would certainly do it again.

Porec Guide

The Croatian town of Porec is located on the western coast of the Istrian Peninsular. With a history that dates back almost 2,000 years, Porec's heart is its harbour which is protected from the sea by the small island of Saint Nicholas. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 the town's main attraction, the 6th century Euphrasian Basilica of the Assumption of Mary, is known for its gold mosaics and is worth a visit. The church is actually a collection of buildings which include the baptistery and the Bishop's Palace. Also in the town are some preserved Romanesque houses and some amazing Venetian Gothic palaces. Originally a Gothic Franciscan church built in the 13th century, the 'Dieta Istriana' hall was remodelled in the Baroque style in the 18th century.

The town is often voted Croatia's top resort by the Croatian National Tourist Office which has helped make it a popular holiday destination. The principle tourist areas are the town's two bays to the south of the town; Zelena and Plava Laguna. Each have their own hotels, camping facilities, marina and shops.

From the town's harbour, ferries depart to Venice in Italy.


Venice Guide

The Italian city of Venice was founded more than 1,500 years ago and actually lies on 118 different islands that are connected by a series of over 150 canals and 400 bridges. This beautiful city's historic centre is divided into six quarters which are Cannaregio, Castello, Dorsoduro, San Marco, San Polo and Santa Croce. All of Venice's buildings are supported by either Oak or Pine posts that have been driven deep into the ground in order to provide a solid foundation for the buildings they support.

Venice is arguably one of the most visited, and most beautiful, cities in the world and has many popular attractions including the Basilica San Marco which is a large church and perhaps one of the most famous sights in the city. Also in the city is the Piazza San Marco, in the heart of the city, the Palazzo Ducale which is a stunning waterside palace, and the Accademia Gallery that contains masterpieces from the 14th century through to the 18th century by some of the world's greatest artists including Bellini, Longhi, Picasso, Titian and Rosalba Carriera.
