Since the Corona crisis, line 12 has only seldom departed from islands such as Murano and Burano to Punta Sabbioni, and line 14, which replaces Punta Sabbioni, now operates to Burano in addition to Lido and Venice. In Burano you can change to other islands like Murano and Torcello. Line 14 consists of large ferries that can carry many hundreds of people. The two-story ships are many times larger than the other vaporetti lines on Venice.

During the day you can reach Punta Sabbioni every 30 minutes by bus from Jesolo and Cavallino. There are very large parking lots in Punta Sabbioni, which usually cost 5 euros for a day. Thousands of tourists park here every day and take a vaporetto of line 14 to Venice, Burano or Lido.
Great is that the landing stage of the waterbus 14 in Venice is very central, it is only 200 meters on foot to St. Mark's Square. The pier in Venice is called San Marco Zaccaria.
At the port of Punta Sabbioni you can buy drinks and there is also a snack bar. There are also public toilets. The big ferries of line 14 also have a toilet, but in our experience this is often locked. Often the ferries are quite full, this also applies to the buses between Jesolo and Punta Sabbioni.
