Venezia Lines

Venezia Lines is a high-speed passenger ferry operator linking the North Adriatic coast of Italy with numerous locations on the northwest coast of Croatia, and Piran in Slovenia.

As their name suggests, Venezia Lines sails primarily from the Italian port of Venice, while services have, in the past, run from Rimini and Bari. Operating their first trip in 2003, Venezia Lines is now a leading company in the Adriatic Sea thanks to the backing of Virtu Ferries; they have since carried over a million passengers between Venice and the northern coasts of Croatia and Slovenia.

Running from April to October, Venezia Lines can carry around 300 passengers per trip, and with crossing durations of between 2 ½ and 4 hours, depending on the route, they are by far the fastest carrier linking the North Adriatic's ports, averaging a speed of about 35 knots. The 2 ships are air-cushion vessels called San Frangisk and San Pawl, combining all the advantages of hover crafts and catamarans, resulting in higher speeds, lower fuel consumption, less wave-making and higher manoeuvrability owing to the significant reduction of water resistance.

  • "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.
