A cruise terminal for small to mid-size ships
Terminal San Basilio is a quay alongside the Giudecca Canal, not far from the main Marittima basin.
Its pier can handle two or three small to medium-size cruise ships at a time, and when you walk out of the terminal building, you're in Venice's historic center.
