As the Northernmost port in the Mediterranean Sea, Monfalcone is the bridge between Western and Eastern Mediterranean cultures. Thanks to its historical maritime tradition, it is also the birthplace of many of our MSC cruise ships.
Its connection with Venice is not just a territorial one, based on the proximity of the 2 cities, but mainly a long-lasting relationship dating back from the Middle Age up to the 19th Century: La Rocca, the symbol of the city, is the most renowned heritage of this bond.
