Umag ferry port in Croatia connects you with Venice in Italy with a choice of up to 2 ferry crossings per week. The duration of the Umag to Venice crossing is from 2 hours 30 minutes and the crossing is operated by Venezia Lines & Atlas Kompas.
Umag is a coastal city in Istria, a region located on the northwest coast of Croatia, bordering the Adriatic Sea. The port is seen as the gateway to Italy, with crossings to Venice on the northeast coast of Italy lasting around three hours.
Umag is one of many Croatian towns that have helped build a beautiful portrait of the west coast of the country; colourful houses emblazon the town, moulded together by narrow, cobbled streets leading to charming squares hosting bustling bars and cool cafes. More salient tourist destinations bogart the limelight for Croatia, however, Umag is a shy beast that boasts an Old Town constructed by archaic walls and gated draw bridges, unfairly remaining under the radar. Wander around the quaint walls and striking edifices, basking in the stunning architecture, symbolised by the Church of St. Mary and St. Peregrin that stands tall in the skyline.
Umag has almost become defined by the magnificent Old Town and the allure that comes from such ancient architecture, however, it isn’t just a mecca for history lovers. Modern hotels afford a luxurious experience for visitors, and many streets encourage tourists to sample the local custom in a wave of outlets and stalls set up by the locals. Come nightfall the small town transforms into a vibrant hub of vigour and vitality, and for the nocturnal types, Casino Elite is open all hours.
The town is compact and pleasant enough to be an ideal setting for a leisurely stroll.
