Ferries to Venice Venice ferries connect Italy with Greece, Ionian Islands & Croatia with crossings available to Igoumenitsa & Patras (in Greece), Corfu (in the Ionian Islands) & Pula, Porec & Rovinj (in Croatia). Venice Ferry crossings are operated by Minoan Lines, Anek Superfast.

Yes. If you travel with Minoan Lines or Anek Lines you can travel with an e-ticket. We will give you a web page address where you just have to input your booking confirmation code. You can then either print your ticket or save it to your phone.
If you don't get an e-ticket you will have to print your ticket. To get your ticket printed make sure you have a print out or a copy of your reservation on your phone and a valid form of photographic ID - for example your passport or ID card.
If you don't use an e-ticket, in Venice around the port you will find all the central agencies for the ferry companies. These will always be open around the time of your ferry. By going to a central agency you won't pay to have your ticket printed. There will be a sign outside the door or you'll be referred there by the agency.

If you go to a non-central agency may have to pay a small fee to get your ticket - normally a couple of Euros.

Venice is a big and beautiful city so you can visit it all the seasons. The only sure thing is that you will not be bored.
Venice is only served by Anek Superfast company.

You can travel to Venice from these mainland ports:

  • Igoumenitsa
    There are 3 sailings weekly and the duration is 25 hours and 30 minutes.
  • Patra
    There are 3 sailings weekly and the duration is 32 hours.
  • Corfu
    There is 1 sailing weekly and the duration is 24 hours and 45 minutes.
  • Pula
    There are 5 sailings weekly and the duration is 4 hours.
  • On foot: Please arrive at least one hour before you travel.
  • By car: Please arrive at least two hours before you travel and in July and August allow for traffic jams on your journey.

Yes, you can take your dog or other pet on the ferry but it isn't possible to book a space in the kennel in advance. All Greek ships by law must have some kennel space.

  • On conventional ferries

    If you are travelling on conventional ferry (not a fast ferry or catamaran) there is normally space available in the kennels and you should also be able to have your dog on all deck areas (but not inside) with you. Strictly speaking, this at the discretion of the ferry company but in general you should have no issues - though please take a muzzle with you just in case and keep your dog on a leash at all times. Small sized dogs and cats can travel in the ship as long as they stay inside a special travel box.

    The other option, for absolute peace of mind, is to book a pet cabin. These are like normal cabins but have linoleum flooring. They are also available for day crossings at reasonable prices. This way you don't have to worry about finding space in the kennels and you and your dog or cat can relax. In July and August ferries can get very busy with people and other dogs.

  • On fast ferries or catamarans

    Fast ferries and catamarans will also have kennels but these will be limited in number. In addition, the majority of fast ferries (though there are exceptions) don't have open deck space accessible throughout the journey, so you will not be able to stay out with your pet during your crossing. However, if your pet is small and inside a travel box you will be able to keep him or her inside.

Yes, we accept PayPal and if your debit card is issued by Visa or Mastercard then you should have no issues paying by debit card.

Our tips to get a cheap ticket to Venice:

  • Book in advance Prices always go up the closer you book to your departure date.
  • Compare ferry companies side by side using a service like Zas ferries.
  • Choose an inside cabin If you want travel in a cabin and don't need a view, inside cabins are always cheaper.
You can take your bike with you for free to or from Venice, if you travel on large ships such as those of Anek Lines and Kompas companies. However, on ships without a garage, bicycles are normally not allowed inside. You'll see if the ship has a garage when making your reservation.
