Bassani, Cruise Ground Handler & Shipping Agent operating along the whole Italian Adriatic Coast with Head office in Venice, has signed an agreement on an exclusive basis for the cruise industry with “Chorus”, one of the most important religious association’s in Venice.

Chorus Association is a network of the 16 most important monumental churches in Venice containing a heritage of more than 1000 works of art.

This 3 year agreement allows Bassani to offer to all cruise lines an extremely competitive price on the Chorus pass, a ticket giving access to all member churches, against the official price of € 9.00.

Filippo Olivetti – Managing Director at Bassani says:

“I am very pleased to announce this important agreement as it will give the possibility to cruise lines to offer a very good option at an extremely competitive price to the large share of those passengers wishing to explore the city by themselves. Moreover cruise lines and passengers taking part in this program will actively promote and participate in the preservation and enhancement of this patrimony, as shown by the sentence written in every ticket: ‘this is a contribution to the maintenance of the churches of Venice’.”
