The complex of the two ports of Venice and Chioggia offers tailor-made infrastructure and services to effectively respond to various types of users: cruises, river cruises, ferries, fast ferries, and yachts.
Towards a more sustainable cruise model
For the Veneto Port System, the cruise sector plays a leading role, considering the global attractiveness exerted by the artistic, architectural, cultural, landscape, and natural heritage of Venice and its lagoon.
To protect this heritage, recent regulatory provisions have indicated a medium to long-term path to implement a more sustainable cruise model.
