Vaporetto No 13 from Fondamente Nuovo takes You to Sant Erasmo. It passes by, or calls at other islands en route.
Check before boarding that this is going to the destination that you want (I think Lazzaretto Nuova is a 'request stop'). On one journey, we called at San Michelle, but not on another. Murano, Vignole, Lazzareto Nuova and 3 stops on Sant Erasmo are the route 13.

I was staying on Sant Erasmo for 2 nights, so travelled on the 13 route a few times. The usual vessel was a motoscaffo - All the water buses tend to be called vaporetti (Vaporetto means little steamer, as they were originally steam powered) but this really applies to the large wider ferries that run on the slower routes. Motoscaffi are slimmer and therefore faster. Some look quite old, but they get up quite a speed when cutting across the lagoon.

From Fondamente Nuova, the No 13 leaves the quay to the right of the bridge (looking waterwards) at 4.25 4.55 5.40 6.05 7.10 8.00 8.30 9.00 10.00 11.00 12.15 13.15 14.15 15.30 16.30 17.30 18.30 19.35 20.45 21.45 and 22.30.
The night service (Notturno Laguna Nord) leaves the quay to the left of the bridge at 23.20 0.00 0.55 1.55 and 2.57
