Are you looking for a unique day trip during your stay in Piran, Umag, Poreč, Rovinj, or Pula? Look no further than a trip to Venice by catamaran.
Experience the comfort of sailing while learning about the history of one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
Venice is known as the pearl of the northern coast of the Adriatic Sea and is home to some of the world's most iconic landmarks and cultural treasures. With over 30 million tourists visiting annually, it can be a challenge to make the most of your time in this enchanting city. But don't worry - the Venice.com team has been organizing trips since 2009 to make sure you experience Venice in all its glory.
Your day trip will begin at the customs pier of your selected port, where the friendly crew will welcome you aboard. Before departure, you can refresh yourself with a coffee, snack, or refreshing drink (for an additional fee). During the voyage, experienced guides will provide insight into the history of Venice, the development and decline of the "Serenissima" republic, and the itinerary for the day.
As you enter the Venetian lagoon, you'll be transported to a completely different world. Canals replace streets, and vessels replace cars, trucks, and buses. Each building plays an important role in the mosaic of this rich city. After a 45-minute drive through the lagoon, you'll arrive at the port of "San Basilio," likely before 11 am.
Upon arrival, you'll head to the city center with your guides. Before disembarking, make sure you have enough drinks with you, as distances in Venice can be deceiving, and the prices on the ship are more affordable than in the city. The guides will offer you the option (for a small extra charge) to take a boat to the city center, or you can walk with one of the guides (about 40 minutes' walk) to the iconic St. Mark's Square.
Once you arrive at the square, the guides will show you all the sights, including St. Mark's Basilica, the Doge's Palace, and the Campanile. After the tour, you'll have free time for individual tours and walks. We recommend taking advantage of the following options (for an additional fee): organized lunch at a local restaurant with drinks included, a trip with a romantic Venetian gondola through the secret canals, or a water taxi along the Grand Canal back to the port.
All of these options can be booked with your guide on board during the morning sailing to Venice.
As the day comes to a close, you'll leave Venice at 5:00 pm and head past the city center to Lido Island, where a film festival is organized every year in September. After leaving the lagoon, you'll sail across the Adriatic, with arrival at the departure port expected in the evening.
In conclusion, a day trip to Venice by catamaran from Piran is an excellent way to experience the pulse of life in one of the world's most beautiful cities.
