Faro (Murano)

From: Venice Waterbus Stops

Murano Faro is an important ACTV station on the glassmaking island of Murano. (See our 11-page Murano travel guide.) It's visited by a large number of boat lines, including larger vessels that run to Burano and other locations in the northern reaches of the Venetian Lagoon.

Murano Faro ACTV station

The main part of the station has a ticket booth (open during business hours) but no ticket machine. You can also buy tickets at a tabacchi shop behind the station.

Routes that call at Faro include:

The station can be busy during peak season or on weekends, so we'd suggest purchasing a ticket well in advance of your trip if you're departing from Faro.

For hotels in the vicinity, see our detailed Murano hotel listings. (One very pleasant two-star hotel, Al Soffiador, is only a short walk inland from the Faro boat stop.)
