"Great day out"
Booked this trip from the UK before I went to Croatia and paid £119 for two adults, it was a bit of a gamble doing it this way as the boat doesn't sail if the weather is bad, thankfully it worked out for us on the day but the excursion the day before was cancelled so bad weather could mess with your plans. Just as the boat left the port in Porec one of the crew went round handing out sick bags, this was an omen of things to come. The high speed catamaran gets very rough and bumpy even in the mildest of waves so a few of the fellow passengers were sick, these conditions also made it rather difficult to walk around to go to the toilet or the on board bar, we stayed in our seat for the entire journey. The staff on board were selling a package for 80 euros ppn which consisted of transfers, lunch, guided tour etc but I had been advised before I travelled that I could do all these things cheaper, this turned out to be true so I'm glad I didn't take up this offer. All in all if your going to Croatia this is a fantastic opportunity to visit one of the most beautiful cities in the world, I'd recommend this to anyone who's not adverse to having their internal organs pounded a bit during the crossing.

The Croatian town of Porec is located on the western coast of the Istrian Peninsular. With a history that dates back almost 2,000 years, Porec's heart is its harbour which is protected from the sea by the small island of Saint Nicholas. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997 the town's main attraction, the 6th century Euphrasian Basilica of the Assumption of Mary, is known for its gold mosaics and is worth a visit. The church is actually a collection of buildings which include the baptistery and the Bishop's Palace. Also in the town are some preserved Romanesque houses and some amazing Venetian Gothic palaces. Originally a Gothic Franciscan church built in the 13th century, the 'Dieta Istriana' hall was remodelled in the Baroque style in the 18th century.
The town is often voted Croatia's top resort by the Croatian National Tourist Office which has helped make it a popular holiday destination. The principle tourist areas are the town's two bays to the south of the town; Zelena and Plava Laguna. Each have their own hotels, camping facilities, marina and shops.
From the town's harbour, ferries depart to Venice in Italy.
The Italian city of Venice was founded more than 1,500 years ago and actually lies on 117 different islands that are connected by a series of over 150 canals and 400 bridges. This beautiful city's historic centre is divided into six quarters which are Cannaregio, Castello, Dorsoduro, San Marco, San Polo and Santa Croce. All of Venice's buildings are supported by either Oak or Pine posts that have been driven deep into the ground in order to provide a solid foundation for the buildings they support.
Venice is arguably one of the most visited, and most beautiful, cities in the world and has many popular attractions including the Basilica San Marco which is a large church and perhaps one of the most famous sights in the city. Also in the city is the Piazza San Marco, in the heart of the city, the Palazzo Ducale which is a stunning waterside palace, and the Accademia Gallery that contains masterpieces from the 14th century through to the 18th century by some of the world's greatest artists including Bellini, Longhi, Picasso, Titian and Rosalba Carriera.
