Rovinj Venice Ferry reviews

  • "Efficient but watch your bags"

    Upon arrival at Customs we got in the lineup expecting our bags to be inside for pick up. No one advised us that they were left on the dock where we got off the jet boat. Other than that the trip was good

  • "Lack of transparency "

    Back now at our original port having sailed from rovinj to Venice, and staying in Venice overnight. When purchasing the tickets we were under the impression that the service was direct. There was no mention of a detour to pula which was at least 90 minutes out of our way. Direct ferries should have made this very clear on their site. To add to this, the boat was held up across the Adriatic Sea as the pilot essentially went round some choppy waters. It was only when we were nearly arriving into Venice were we told how late we were running and the reason why. Real time (or closer to real time) updates are appreciated in 2019. We left rovinj on time at 6.15am and left the boat in Venice at 12noon.... We returned to rovinj the next day nearly an hour late, but with no apology or explanation as to why. Again in 2019 there's no excuse for lack of updates. The boat was clean, spacious and the staff (aside from the lack of updates) were good but there was no apathy towards their customers, who like me presumably purchased tickets which were very expensive.

  • "Wonderful trip to venice "

    Not just a ferry company, they had great knowledge of venice itself. We booked the shuttle bus to st Mark's square and the water taxi down the grand canel back to the ferry. The staff were all so friendly especially with my 2 year old boy. Very professional.

  • "Easy crossing"

    The ship was on time and the staff shows good professionalism and knowledge of the crossing . The advice given about Venice itself, the trips available and tips on what to expect and do In Venice was delivered with honesty , humour and an understanding which proves really helpful. My friend and I took the boat trip to St Marco square which was really informative and enjoyable.

Rovinj Guide

The Croatian city of Rovinj lies on the Adriatic Sea coast, on the western coast of the Istrian Peninsular. The city is a thriving fishing port and is also a popular tourist destination. The city's Old Town, which used to be an island secured by medieval walls, has seven gates, of which three still remain today. Artefacts have been found that date back to the Bronze Age although the city didn't really begin to grow until the 3rd century. The city is characterised by narrow houses, narrow streets and a small square which is a reflection of the limited space available in the city on which to build. Interesting attractions in the city's Old Town include the striking Church of St Euphemia and the Balbi Arch, which both have more than a hint of Venice about them.

Located near to the city centre, the port offers passenger ferry services to Venice in Italy with a crossing time of around 3 hours and 30 minutes when the crossing stops en route in Porec, Pula or Piran. Direct crossings to the Italian city take around 2 hours and 45 minutes. Facilities in the port include restaurants and some shops.

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.
