GAS vaporetto (Venice boats) shuttles will operate on a regular basis from Fondamente Nove in Venice to the Faro stop in Murano.

Murano and Venice are walking cities – be prepared for cobblestone streets and uneven surfaces. Unfortunately, Glass Art Society is unable to provide ADA accommodations for this conference.
