The San Marco Line, formally known in Italian as the Società di Navigazione 'San Marco,' was a small, short-lived subsidiary company of the Società Veneziana di Navigazione a Vapore. Formed in 1926, the San Marco Line serviced the Adriatic between Venice and the Dalmation Coast (current day Croatia). They only sailed until 1932, when they were taken over by the Adriatica Line. Pictured is one of the two sister ships - the Lorenzo Marcello or the Lazzarro Mocenigo - sailing between historical structures from all of the listed ports. These include Venice's San Marco Campanile, the Cathedral of St. Justus Rose Window in Trieste, the Pula Arena (Pola), the Rijeka Clock Tower (Fiume), Zadar's Captain's Tower (Zara), the Arch of Trajan in Ancona, the statue of a stag at the entrance to the port of Rhodes, and the no-longer extant Madonna del Mare in Opatija (Abazzia).
