Buy boat tickets Burano

Burano, an ancient center of the Venice Lagoon, is famous for its lace making and the polychromy of its houses: a tradition perhaps born as a reaction to the humid and misty climate, rich in fogs that characterize these lagoon places.

You can go to the Island of Burano with the Actv vaporetto lines, the public water and land transport service in Venice, which makes connections to every destination in the historic center of Venice and the islands of the lagoon by means of various waterbuses. There is no direct line but you have to reach Fondamente Nove or Murano and change for Burano.

Which ticket to choose for my visit to Burano?

For tourists and non-residents there are various types of ACTV tickets to choose from depending on the length of stay in the city or the use of the vaporetto you want to do.

If you only visit the Venice International Film Festival you can buy the 75-minute ticket for € 7.50; however, if you plan to add the visit to other nearby places and attractions, the 24-hour € 21 ticket is better, otherwise you would use 4 to 6 75-minute tickets even spending twice as much.

So you have to plan the purchase according to your needs. The day ticket expires 24 hours after the first validation. The same for the other day tickets.

What ticket you should choose to go to Burano

For tourists and non-residents there are various types of ACTV tickets to choose from depending on the length of stay in the city or the use of the vaporetto you want to do.

If you only visit Burano you can buy a 75-minute ticket for € 7.50; however, if you plan to add the visit to Murano and Torcello, the 24-hour ticket of € 21 is better, otherwise you would use 4 to 6 tickets of 75 minutes even spending double.

The journey from Piazzale Roma or Train Station to Fondamente Nove with line 4.2 takes 27 '/ 23'.
The journey from Fondamente Nove to Burano with line 12 lasts 43 '.

Total travel time: 66/70 minutes + waiting at F. Nove.

So the 75 minute ticket could be fine but also expire during the journey in case of small delays. In this case, contact the sailor to advise him. To be on the safe side, the 24-hour ticket is better.

However, from Piazzale Roma there is a faster alternative: Line 3 in 24 minutes with Murano Faro stop + Line 12 in 30 minutes.

Total travel time: 54 minutes + waiting in Murano Faro. Choice that makes sense when buying the 75-minute ticket.

So you have to plan the purchase according to your needs. The day ticket expires 24 hours after the first validation. The same for the other day tickets.
