Venice's Passenger Port counts on three main facilities: Marittima, San Basilio and Santa Marta, and Riva delle Zattere.
The Passenger Terminals
The Marittima area is entirely dedicated to passengers with 10 state of the art terminals and dedicated services.
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, ferries, high-speed craft and yachts.
Cruise ships account for a large share of transiting passengers. In 2016 1,777,399 passengers (1,625,637 on cruise ships) transited by Venice, confirming its position as one of the Mediterranean's chief homeport.
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.
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.
An environmentally friendly passenger port
The passenger port is also committed to protecting the environment and is especially attentive towards sustainability issues.
Further information on the passenger terminal is available in the Venice passenger terminal (VTP) website.
Information on the dedicated services for yachts is available on the Venice Yacht Pier website.
