Venice Guide

The city of Venice is located in the north east of Italy and lies on a group of 18 islands that are separated by canals and linked by a series of bridges. The city is situated in the marshy Venetian Lagoon which stretches along the shoreline, between the mouths of the Po and Piave rivers and derives its name from the ancient Veneti people who lived in the area around the 10th century BC. The city, perhaps one of the most famous in the world, is renowned for its beautiful architecture, its views and for its works of art. The city and lagoon have, unsurprisingly, been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The Venezia Ferry Terminal, Passeggeri, connects Venice to the mainland at the exit of the famous bridge, Ponte della Liberta. The new Venice Marittima Ferry Port Terminal provides a wide array of facilities including check-in desks, restaurants, shops, and many more services. The Terminal S Marta can be found in one of the port's oldest buildings and offers modern amenities including cafés, shops and other public facilities. The I S Basiliocan Terminal is where ferries from Croatian and northern Adriatic destinations arrive. Destinations available from the port include Mali Losinj, Pula, Porec, Rovinj, Igoumenitsa, Patras, Piran and Umag.

Ancona Guide

The Italian port city of Ancona is located in the Le Marche region of central Italy and has been gaining in popularity as a tourist destination over recent years. It is popular for its natural beauty and lovely gastronomy, which the city itself has many things to offer its visitors. The city lies on the Adriatic Sea coast, some 200 km from the city of Bologna and 280 km from the city of Rome, the Italian capital. The city's natural defences, located between the slopes of Monte Conero and Monte Astagno, made it a good location for the original settlers from Syracuse to defend. Greek merchants established a Tyrian purple factory in the city and their influence on the area is widespread. During Roman times the city had its own coin system and Greek was spoken throughout the area.

Ancona is a very important sea port and is well connected by its port to many other locations. The best and easiest way to reach Ancona is by ferry, which operate to destinations including Split, Rijeka, Zadar, Hvar, Korcula, Dubrovnik, Patras, Igoumenitsa, and Dugi Otok.
