Venice Guide

The city of Venice is located in the north east of Italy and lies on a group of 18 islands that are separated by canals and linked by a series of bridges. The city is situated in the marshy Venetian Lagoon which stretches along the shoreline, between the mouths of the Po and Piave rivers and derives its name from the ancient Veneti people who lived in the area around the 10th century BC. The city, perhaps one of the most famous in the world, is renowned for its beautiful architecture, its views and for its works of art. The city and lagoon have, unsurprisingly, been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Venezia Ferry Terminal, Passeggeri, connects Venice to the mainland at the exit of the famous bridge, Ponte della Liberta. The new Venice Marittima Ferry Port Terminal provides a wide array of facilities including check-in desks, restaurants, shops, and many more services. The Terminal S Marta can be found in one of the port's oldest buildings and offers modern amenities including cafés, shops and other public facilities. The I S Basiliocan Terminal is where ferries from Croatian and northern Adriatic destinations arrive. Destinations available from the port include Mali Losinj, Pula, Porec, Rovinj, Igoumenitsa, Patras, Piran and Umag.

Piran Guide

The Slovenian town of Piran is located on the Gulf of Piran and lies on the Adriatic Sea coast and is regarded as one of the most picturesque and oldest towns in Slovenia. The town was ruled by the Venetians for several centuries and this is reflected in the architecture of its buildings that can still be seen today. The town began to grow in the 7th century and is when it was first mentioned in historical sources. Throughout its history it has been ruled by different cultures although the Venetians perhaps held the most influence. In 1283, Piran accepted the authority of Venice which was maintained until 1797 when the Venetian Republic declined. Following this Piran fell under the control of Austria until 1918. In the period between both world wars this territory belonged to Italy and later to Yugoslavia and then Slovenia.
