Port of Venice

Harbour Information, Terminals and Facilities
(Venice, Veneto, Italy)

The beautiful city of Venice is famous for its canals, with the most famous being the Grand Canal. Additionally, there are 177 smaller canals that dissect the city. Sailings depart from Venice Port travelling to Greek and Croatian destinations.

The Venezia Ferry Terminal, Passeggeri, connects Venice to the mainland at the exit of the famous bridge, Ponte della Liberta.

The new Venice Marittima Ferry Port Terminal provides a wide array of facilities including check-in desks, restaurants, shops, and many more services.

The Terminal S Marta can be found in one of the port's oldest buildings and offers modern amenities including cafés, shops and other public facilities.

The I S Basiliocan Terminal is where vessels from Croatian and northern Adriatic destinations arrive.

The passenger terminals are all wheelchair friendly and have toilets available for those with disabilities. It is advisable to notify the ferry operators when special assistance is required at the terminal.

There is no denying that Venice is an expensive Italian city in which to look for accommodation, particularly during the annual Carnevale celebrations. The best Venice villas and luxury hotels tend to be concentrated within the San Marco area, where they boast views of the Grand Canal. Cheaper lodging is grouped around the train station and is within walking distance of many waterfront attractions.
