Pula Venice Ferry reviews

  • "It’s a long trip but is it worth it?"

    The reality is if you are heading for a day trip from Pula to Venice be prepared to spend over eight hours enclosed in a catamaran. But if you don’t mind that you do get to spend five hours in Venice. I went it alone and managed in that five hours to do a complete circuit of the canal by vaporetto, stopped off at the Rialto Bridge for a very pleasant three course lunch for a set price of 21€ they hopped back on to the water bus down to walk through St Mark’s Square, no time for much else other than to by the inevitable Venetian etching from a roadside artist, then back onto the bus to return to the ferry. Fortunately I chose a day when the sea was smooth and better still I was in VIP which if I was to do the trip again would be the only way I would travel. The staff were all courteous and helpful. Only problem, no loo paper in VIP loo hence marking down.

  • "Not many places are worth 7 hours travelling on a single day, but Venice is the exception."

    The vessel was clean and comfortable and on time, so what more could you want. The staff were very informative and courteous. The male member of staff who spoke and gave information about Venice was very good, and funny, and certainly made me re-think my plan for the day. Obviously, they want customers to book their trips but it worked in my family’s favour that we did. I think the taxi back to the ship (allowing you to see the sights of the Grand Canal) is a no brainer. Everything was very well organised and I would certainly use their services again.

  • "Excellent way to travel! "

    The ferry departed very promptly, check in etc very efficient. The journey was pleasant with the crew members polite and helpful. The tour guides were excellent and during the presentation for the day trip offers there were lots of interesting facts and history about Venice. Even though we were only travelling one way and so weren't interested in any of the excursions, the presentation was still interesting!

  • "Pula to Venice Boat - Bus - Boat"

    We were so looking forward to sailing from Pula to Venice, can you imagine our disappointment when we received an email to say the boat has been cancelled and we were going to be bused instead, but we would get a 40% refund. Whilst were were disappointed we made the best of a bad situation and blew the 40% refund on a boat trip round the islands near Pula. We then stocked up for our bus journey, downloaded an audio book as the bus was going to be 2 hours ish longer. We arrive on the day of travel and no buses but lots of people. Turns out the boat is now running, great we were looking forward to it but it would have been nice if an email or SMS was sent. We did consider scrapping the boat altogether and making alternatives arrangements. That aside the trip was good, were were only going one way however there were lots of day trippers and the deal that Kompass offer for 85€ for two tours, a gondola ride and lunch with wine seemed a real bargain and perfect if you have limited time in Venice.

Pula Guide

The Croatian city of Pula is located at the southern tip of the Istria Peninsular and lies on and beneath seven hills on the inner part of a wide gulf. It has a naturally protected port which is open to the north west and has two entrances. One is from the sea and the other is through the Fazana Channel. Known for its mild climate, beautiful scenery and calm seas, the city has a long history in wine waking, fishing, shipbuilding and tourism. There are many surviving ancient Roman buildings in the town, with the most popular being the 1st century amphitheatre, one of the six largest surviving Roman amphitheatres in the world. Other popular attractions Roman structures in the city are the 1st century triumphal arch, the Arch of the Sergi and the co-eval temple of Rome and Augustus which was also built in the 1st century during the reign of the Roman Emperor, Augustus.

From the city's port, ferry services depart to Venice in Italy where onward connections can be made to Rimini in Italy and Kooper and Losinj in Croatia. Facilities at the port include a restaurant, bureau de change, a convenience store, toilets and showers.

Venice Guide

The Italian city of Venice was founded more than 1,500 years ago and actually lies on 118 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.
