The Croatian coastal city of Umag, along with much of Istria, was ruled by the Romans in its early centuries and also came under the influence of the Venetian Empire in 1248. Following the fall of the Venetian Empire, Umag came under the rule of the Austrians and then was Italian until 1943, before being given to Yugoslavia in 1953. Bringing the city's history up to the present day, Umag then became part of the Croatia that declared independence in 1991.
The city's coastline stretches for around 20 km and is a popular holiday destination in Croatia. The old town is characterised by its narrow cobbled streets and its coastline with picturesque little bays. There are around 60,000 hotel beds and private accommodation in the city along with a number of camping and caravan sites along the coast. There is definitely a place to stay that suits all budgets and all tastes. Umag is also well known for its marina and the international tennis centre which hosts the Croatian Open every July.
Ferry services operating from Umag port depart to Venice with one sailing each week and with a crossing time of around 2 hours and 30 minutes.
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.
