Its quite quick if you are near the Fondemente Nuove stop, which is only about 10 min walk from rialto, otherwise you sit on vap for a long while as it goes all the way round from st marks side. we got the 41 or 42, takes about 15 min and thet run often.
You can take the DM from Piazzale Roma.
The great virtue, to my mind, of the 41/42 service is that it goes down the canal through the middle of Murano and gives you a chocie of around 6 landing stages. I often get off at the Museo landing stage which is only a very short walk to you right to the Glass Museum in Palazzo Giustinian or another 100 metre further on to the lovely church of Santi Maria e Donato.
Alternatively I often get off at Da Mula and walk the sort distance to the church of San Pietro Martire and the Campo San Stefano where you can eat well at Busa alla Torre
Are the 42 and the DM the same vaporetto?
No, 42 stops a lot, DM goes direct so is much quicker. When you get to Venice there are Vaporetto maps displayed at the stops.
That is what I thought, why I recommended the DM in post above. I have been to Murano twice on it. Thank you.
Thank everyone who sent these replies.
