Venice Kayak is based at the Vento di Venezia, on the Certosa Island in the lagoon, just east of Venice city. The Certosa Island is served by vaporetto lines 4.1 and 4.2 (formerly lines 41 and 42), which are circular lines spanning most of Venice and Murano. These lines connect the island to the bus terminal and parking facilities at Piazzale Roma, to the railway station, and to many central vaporetto stops like San Marco, Fondamente Nove and Murano.

How to Arrive

The best ways to arrive to our office at Certosa Island.

By Waterbus

From Rialto & Grand Canal

If you’re staying in the central parts of Venice, the areas around Rialto, Accademia, and along the Canal Grande, you can take a vaporetto line 1 to Sant’Elena, and then switch to line 4.1 for just one stop. Departure from Rialto at 7 minutes past the hour, Accademia at 20 minutes, and Salute at 25 minutes. This vaporetto will arrive at Sant’Elena at 45 minutes, in time for the 4.1 at 50 minutes past the hour for Certosa, just one stop.

By Waterbus

From Cannaregio & Central Castello

From much of the Sestiere Cannaregio the fastest is to walk to Fondamente Nove, and take the vaporetto 4.2 from there, as per the timetable above. Fondamente Nove is the main vaporetto stop on the northern side of Venice, and it serves a lot of vaporetto lines. From much of the central parts Sestiere Castello the fastest route is to walk to Fondamente Nove, Ospedale or Celestia, and take the vaporetto 4.2 from there.

By Waterbus

From Lido

From the Lido you need to go to Sant’Elena first, and then change to the vaporetto 4.1 to get to the Certosa island. The vaporetto line 1 at 32 minutes past the hour will be at Sant’Elena at 37 minutes, in time for the vaporetto 4.1 at 50 minutes. At the S.Elena stop you need to walk on to the other platform to board the connecting vaporetto. Be careful as many other lines than the 4.1 use that platform. From the Camping San Nicolò, take the bus line A. Ask in the camp site office for details.
