"Great Way to get to Venice"
Staff were friendly and talks were provided on information about Venice and discounts on attractions e.g. Gondola rides. The ferry left and arrived on time. It was very spacious with a small bar for food and drink and toilets. Will certainly use again.

Located on the Gulf of Piran, on the Adriatic Sea coast, lies the Slovenian town of Piran. Having been shaped by the Venetian Republic and Austria-Hungary, the town's historical monuments are quite different from those found in other parts of the country. The town's walls were built to protect it from the Ottomans and many sections of the walls, hailing from different periods, remain and are a popular attraction with visitors.
Located inside the old town walls are charming narrow streets providing visitors with more than a hint of what the town used to be like. In the town's main square sits a statue of perhaps the most famous man in Piran, the well known Guiseppe Tartini. He was a composer and virtuoso violinist who was born in a house a short distance from the square. In the north of Piran's town centre the road takes travellers past the hamlet of Fiesa into Strunjan, while to the south the coastal road leads to Portoroz, with its famous beach. The town eases gently into the new town of Lucija with its very famous marina. Beyond the smaller peninsula of Seca the Secovlje saltpans open to view.
From the town's port ferries operate to Venice in Italy.
The Italian city of Venice was founded more than 1,500 years ago and actually lies on 117 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.
