Optionally you can order gondola rides, lunch and taxi - boat. An overview of basic information about the city, meeting times, places of interest etc. will be given to the passengers before arrival to Venice.

Because Croatia is not in the Schengen union, tourists are passing through the police and customs control at the state border: Passport / EU ID required!

It is possible to travel in only one direction. In Venice loading port is San Basilio, and on the Croatian side port (customs piers) Umag, Porec, Rovinj, Pula and Rabac. We can also help you find a taxi to Croatia, if the boat is not adequate.

The historic center of the city is made on 118 islands and isles. It is located in the lagoon, between the Po and the Piave rivers, on the north of Adriatic Sea. Material brought by rivers is sand, and therefore many buildings are constructed on the basis of oak trees, that were inserted in the sand and mud. It is a unique method of construction. Natural channels between the islands are further deepened to ensure the navigability. The islands are connected to one another by bridges. This is a city in the water.
