    What to Expect
    07:15 Check in begins 45min prior to departure.

    Here it is important to present your passport or identity card. After you collect your boarding card you will proceed to passport control. Remember you are now about to embark a ship which will take you on an international voyage.

    08:00 Departure from Porec.

    During the first 2 hour sailing from Porec to Venice over the Adriatic, our guides will give you an insight into the history of this wonderful city, the development and fall of the Republic "Serenissima" and explain what is waiting for you upon arrival to the port.

    During the crossing you can also enjoy a coffee or a freshly baked croissant from our fully stocked bar.

    10:00 Arrival in the Venetian Lagoon.

    Here you get a taste of what to expect so enjoy the slow and scenic 45-minute sailing through the canals which will take you to San Basilio and start your Venetian adventure. In this time you also have the opportunity to purchase any of the optional extras which will make your trip more enjoyable, special and hassle free.

    10:45 Disembarkation and passport control.

    11:15 Here the guests can choose the boat transfer (optional and at a cost)  which will be accompanied by an experienced guide who will tell you about the sights while sailing through the Giudecca canal: you will sail past the house of Elton John, church "Il Redentore" (the Redeemer), Hotel Danielli (known for movies such as "From Russia with love", "Moonraker", "The Tourist") and see the magnificent entrance into the Canale Grande. For guests that choose not to book this trip, a guide will walk with you to the city centre.

    12:00 Arrival to St. Mark’s square and enjoy the free guided tour where  you will hear about the old and new Procuratie, ala Napoleonica, bell tower, clock tower, basilica of St. Mark’s, Doge’s palace, Library, 2 Granit towers by the water and the "most" romantic bridge in Venice: bridge of sighs.

    12:30 Free time to walk to the Rialto bridge, to drink a cappuccino on St. Mark’s square or use any of the optional addons, offered by the team on the ship such as lunch or a romantic gondola ride.

    16:00 Meeting in the square for the return. Choose to walk with our guides or enjoy the last opportunity to visit the Canale grande with a Water taxi which will bring you back to port just in time for departure. 

    16:45: Passport control and embarkation. Here you must present once again your passport or Identity card and your boarding card.

    17:15: Departure from Venice. Sail past the city centre and Lido Island and exiting the lagoon the same way we came in. Relax in the comfortable air conditioned ship which will take you back to your port of origin.

     

    20:00: Arrival back in Porec. Your Venice experience comes to an end and we can assure you it will be an unforgettable experience you will keep close to heart for years to come.

    Thank you for your review. Of course the border control takes away precious time from your visit in Venice but unfortunately although we are constantly battling with the authorities to improve, we ultimately have no control over it. We hope you enjoyed your day in...More
