Italy to Croatia Ferry Changes

The Venezia Lines, a ferry company that runs ferries between Italy and Croatia (see about ferries in Croatia) has announced some changes in their schedules.

Venezia Lines is no longer operating from Opatija to Venice and is no longer operating departures from Rimini/Ravenna. Instead, their 3rd vessel is redirected to operate a new ferry line between Bari (Italy) and Albania (Durres). Venezia Lines are now concentrating their main ports: Porec, Rovinj, and Pula.

They will also operate ferry lines from Venice to Piran, Rabac, and Mali Losinj. Rimini and Ravenna ferry lines are no longer in use. Venecia Lines will operate more than 185 trips in 2007, with 2 high-speed catamarans – San Pawl and San Frangisk.

    I was considering a ferry from Split to Ancona or Pescara, so we can drive back thru italy to Milan to catch an early morning flight back to the usa on jul 9th, Monday. My visa requires us to be in Italy by Saturday July 7.

    1) My goal is to choose the best ferry that wd assure arrival by the 7th to italy
    SNAV from Split to Ancona, OR
    SANMAR from Split to Pescara
    What do you recommend?

    2) If we go to Pescara, we wd have to drove to/thru Ancona on the way to Milan — is it a pretty / desirable drive??

    3) Are the ferries reliable as to punctuality? both departure and arrival??

    Thank you!

    Hi ,

    I am wanting to get on a ferry from Zadar to Venice.Does this service operate ? Also I would like to get a timetable to see what times the ferries run and to what location.
    Can you book in advance for a ferry? I am travelling with my family and need to make certain of this arrangement as we have accomodation booked in Venice.If I can purchase tickets can I book online or do I have to get a family member to book the accomodation for me.
    thankyou Lily

    There are no ferries that sail directly from Venice to Zadar.
    However, there is a ferry that sails from Venice to Pula and another one that sails from Pula to Zadar.

    You can purchase Venice to Pula online.

    Sorry, the ferry timetable for Pula to Zadar one are not yet updated for summer, nor you can purchase the ticket online. Tickets for the ferry are sold on the day of departure.

    Hello ,
    You mentioned that the ferry timetable still has not been updated and that you cannot purchase tickets online for this service. Can you please tell me that address andwhere the tickets are purchased from on the day of departure. I have to get from Zadar to Pula because I have to catch a ferry the next day from pula to venice. If this is not a option I will have to hire a car but I need to make sure that the ferry is infact still running and will not be cancelled and if my relatives can buy these tickets a few days in advance for me.
