Vaporetto Routes in Venice

Vaporetti: Where they go in Venice and route numbers

You can split the various routes or Linee (lines) into three main categories:

  • Venice City Centre Lines
  • Circular Lines
  • Lagoon Lines

No mystery here. These routes are the ones you’ll use most. They criss-cross the Grand Canal and the Giudecca Canal, with fermata (stops) giving easy access to most of the famous sights and monuments you’ll want to see, from Piazzale Roma to the Lido.

These lines connect Venice with the most important islands in the lagoon, both to the north, the islands of Mazzorbo, Burano, Torcello, Sant’Erasmo, and in the south lagoon. You can also get to Venice directly from Punta Sabbioni, Treporti and Chioggia on the mainland (don’t forget, that peninsula of land to the right of the Lido on the map is actually part of the Italian mainland!).

Seasonal Lines

There are also some routes that only run in the tourist season (including Carnevale) as a back-up for the regular lines. For example, Line 5 links up Piazza San Marco with Murano, taking a circular route.

Here is a link to a page where you can download PDF files of the various routes travelled by the ACTV water buses:
