Our apartment is in Cannaregio where the majority of residents are Venetian.
We are fortunate to be close to the Fondamenta Nuove water bus stop. From the Fondamenta, buses go anti-clockwise to the station and Piazzale Roma and onto the Zattere and St. Marks. One of the two clockwise services goes to the Lido and the other to St. Marks.
A water bus leaves for Murano and over a bridge the boats leave for the airport, Burano and then to Torcello.
A few minutes’ walk takes you to the stops at the Rialto or Ca’ D’Oro where the buses go up the Grand Canal to Piazzale Roma and down the Grand Canal to St. Marks and then onto the Lido.
