Please Review My Directions for Getting to Murano, Burano, Torcello

Jump to last reply

Murano, Burano, Torcello

Get up early in the morning since to visit all three islands takes a good five to seven hours. The time you spend on Burano and Torcello is in one-hour increments (vaporetti ferries leave hourly), and one hour is about enough for each. Add in 10 minutes for the ride from Venice to Murano, 35 minutes from Murano to Burano, 5 minutes from Burano to Torcello, and 70 minutes from Torcello to Venice. If you leave by 9 am or 10 am, you can be back in Venice by late afternoon/early evening (assuming you take time to have lunch). Time it just perfectly, and you ride back to Venice with the sunset sending orange sparklers across the waters of the lagoon as you arrive. Cool.

The main vaporetto line to take to reach the outlying islands in the northern Venetian lagoon is the extra-large express Line LN, which stands for Laguna Nord (North Lagoon). It takes off from Fondamente Nove, which is way up on the north side of the Castello district (though there are two shortcuts from/near San Marco). It stops at the main "Faro" (lighthouse) vaporetto stop on Murano (8 min.), then continues to the residential island of Mazzorbo (another 24 min.), then across a channel to Burano (10 min. from Mazzorbo—which means 34 min. total from Murano, or 42 min. total from Venice).

Specifically when staying at the Hotel al Ponte Mocenigo: Rather than relocate to find a traghetto, you can just hop across the Grand Canal from the San Stae stop on whatever boat comes along. From the stop on the other side (Ca' d'Oro or S. Marcuola; though Ca' d'Oro would be closer) you can make the same walk to Fondamente Nove. If time permits, try to get to the Fondamente Nove a bit early, and go around the corner to the church of the Gesuiti (Santa Maria Assunta)- the marble carvings of drapes and swags are absolutely amazing.

From Burano, you can grab No. 9 (formerly Line T) traghetto to Torcello and back (5 min. each way). Getting back to Venice: From Burano, the LN continues around the littoral (the eastern-most, barrier islands between the lagoon and the Adriatic Sea), stopping at Treporti, Punta Sabbioni (where all the campgrounds are), and one or two stops on the Lido before returning to Venice proper at the S. Zaccaria/Piazza S. Marco stop, which is just east of Piazzetta San Marco (along the Riva degli Schiavoni promenade, in front of the Hotel Danieli). Total time: 70 minutes. There are actually more vaporetto ferries to Murano than just the LN. From the San Marco area you can take Line 4.1, or one of the airport-bound Alilaguna lines.

From Fondamente Nove, you can also take Line 4.1 or 4.2. From Ferrovia (train station) or Piazzale Roma (parking lot), you can grab the DM (Diretto Murano) express line to reach Murano in about 20 minutes (24 min. from Piazzale Roma).

If you happen to be staying on Murano—or just want to hit it en route to Venice—the Blu (blue) and Rosso (red) Alilaguna ferries from the airport all stop at Murano (30 min.). There are actually more vaporetto ferries to Murano than just the LN. From the San Marco area you can take Line 4.1, or one of the airport-bound Alilaguna lines.

From Fondamente Nove, you can also take Line 4.1 or 4.2. From Ferrovia (train station) or Piazzale Roma (parking lot), you can grab the DM (Diretto Murano) express line to reach Murano in about 20 minutes (24 min. from Piazzale Roma).
