History/Info:
One of the islands near Venice is known for its premier glass making. The island is Murano. A short water bus trip from the "mainland" of Venice can take you to the island. At the "Faro" bus stop you will be right at the lighthouse. As with most of the italian lighthouses we visited, we have very little information about the lighthouse. It did indeed appear to be an active lighthouse and at least from ground level it looked as if it had some size of fresnel lens atop it.

Here is a small bit of information I was able to obtain from a friend of ours who lives in Italy:

The lighthouse marks the entrance of the channel which leads from the sea to the lagoon, so its lights is not rotating with a period of 6 seconds.

  • Obtain a map of the Venice water bus system and find the route which will take you to the island of Murano.
  • Get off the bus at the "Faro" stop in Murano. The lighthouse is right at the stop. Waterbus numbers 12, 13, 41, 42, 71, and 72 stop at the Faro station. See the above maps for details. The larger map gives clearer views of each stop.
