Central Italy to Croatia Ferries

Entrance to Motovun



Rovinj view


From central and southern Italy, there are year-round car ferries from Split to Ancona plus a seasonal car ferry from Bari to Dubrovnik.

In July and August there are passenger ferries from Pesaro and Cesenatico to Rovinj, Mali Losinj, Pula, Rab and Novalja. See the schedule and book here.

From Venice to Croatia the catamarans begin with a weekly connection to Rovinj and Porec at the beginning of May and end at the beginning of October. Sailings are more frequent in July and August.

Operated by Atlas-Kompas, note that the schedules are arranged to make day trips from Croatia to Venice, not vice-versa. No matter when you go, I strongly advise that you buy your tickets online in advance.


Prices range from €59 to €82 depending on the port, the day of the week and the season. Click here for prices and booking.


Atlas-Kompas also runs round-trip excursions from the same Istrian ports to Venice during the summer season. Click here for schedules, prices and online booking.
