The Port

Venice is one of the busiest cruise ports in the Adriatic and Mediterranean Sea with more than 500 calls and 1,2 million cruise passengers per year.
Venice cruise terminal consists of two areas: Marittima and San Basilio.
The Marittima is strategically located near the 4km causeway that links the historic city with the mainland. It is the largest of the ship basins with two terminal buildings and enough docking space to handle several large ships at once. The whole area has been designed as a multifunctional structure that can house events and conferences facilities when not in cruise use.
San Basilio is a long quay that runs from the main port area to the Fondamenta Zattere, the promenade along the southern edge of the historic centre on the Giudecca Canal. It accommodates small to medium sized ships and yachts including river vessels.
The cruise terminals are easily served by boats, trains, buses, road services as well as by the airport which is just 10 km far.
