Arrive to Murano:
P.Roma (the autobus and car station): Take
the number 42 vaporetto to Murano, :36 : 56 OR take the
DM (Direct Murano vaporetto).
From Ferrovia (note: “ferro”
in Italian, means “iron” and
“via” means “to go.” Therefore,
ferro + via = iron-go, or train station.
Pretty clever, huh?): Take the number 42 vaporetto to Murano or the DM (Direct Murano vaporetto.
From San Zaccaria (very near S. Mark’s Sq.):
Take the number 41 vaporetto to Murano OR take the number 5 direct vaporetto.
From Fond. Nove: Take
the number 41 or 42 vaporetto to Murano. Many of the passengers who step on at this stop will be old ladies
carrying bouquets of flowers. When you see them, then you know you’re on the
correct vaporetto because before stopping in Murano, it stops on the
island of San Michele, which is the Venetian cemetery.
The ferry boats that go to the islands of Torcello and Burano all
depart from the “Faro” vaporetto stop.
While you’re waiting for the ferry boat, you can have
a snack in the Bar al Faro, located right in front of the vaporetto stops.
you arrive in Murano, the first stop will be Piazzale Colonna.
At that stop, once you get off, you will find men who are
authorized by the Comune di Venezia who will indicate to go to the
“glass factory”. This is a
TOURIST TRAP and should be avoided at all costs.
If you want to see the glass demonstrations,
go to the ones that are listed in the "Glass Making" page.
