Port of Venice

The Port of Venice is the leading Mediterranean homeport for cruise ships. Because it has several passenger terminals it can diversify its offer to cater for cruise ships, ferries, fast ships sailing to the coast of Istria, yachts and mega yachts.

Available facilities

Venice's Passenger Port counts on four main facilities: Marittima, San Basilio and Santa Marta, Riva delle Zattere and Riva degli Schiavoni.
The Passenger Terminals

The Marittima area includes three terminals and a fourth terminal that has yet to be completed but is already in use.
Terminals 103, 107/108, 117 and Isonzo 1-2 are dedicated terminals for large cruise ships, while Terminal 123 specialises in ferries linking Venice to Greece.
Medium sized cruise ships, mega-yachts and fast ships berth at S. Basilio and Santa Marta.

The efficient and advanced services offered by the Port of Venice enable it to host different types of ships: cruise ships even exceeding 300 m., ferries, high-speed craft and yachts.

Cruise ships account for a large share of transiting passengers. In 2012 1,998, 960 passengers (1,739,501 on cruise ships) transited by Venice, confirming its position as one of the Mediterranean's chief homeport.

Ferries are also a major industry. Several shipping companies connect Venice to the Eastern Mediterranean year round. In 2010, Venice's strategic position was confirmed by 357.664 ferry passengers who transited by Venice.

Hydrofoils and fast ships connect the city with Istria, and indeed Venice is the ideal port to set sail to Slovene and Croatian coasts. Several daily services connect the two shores during the summer and this type of service was used in 2010 by more than 109,127 passengers.

Venice is becoming increasingly popular for yachts and mega yachts that can now moor in dedicated berths in some of the City's most panoramic areas: riva delle Zattere, riva degli Schiavoni and San Basilio. Yachting is being encouraged as testified by the services offered and the plans ongoing in this area.

The Terminal Isonzo is a two-story building, divided in two parts: Isonzo 1, with a surface of 8,681 sq. m., was opened in 2009, while Isonzo 2, with a surface of 8,681 sq. m., was opened in 2011. Designed for providing all passengers a smooth experience while embarking and disembarking, it counts among its amenities a 1,432 sq. m panoramic terrace allowing outgoing passengers to enjoy the timeless beauty of the Lagoon City. Easy access to the Terminal Isonzo is granted by the closeness of a short stay area available for drop off and pick up of passengers as well as by a car park, located just a few minutes walk from the facility.
