I will be traveling to Venice in May and I was wondering how far it is from the Port to St Marks Square where I intend to pick up a tour. How do you get from the Port in Venice to St. Marks Square? Thank you for any help you can give.

We were in Venice last October with Princess. Princess had a boat shuttle service from the pier (right beside the ship) to St Mark's Square which ran every 15 minutes or so. The boat ride took about 20 minutes. Princess charged $10 per person for 2 days of transportation.

If you want to get a perfect view of much of Venice, go by boat (Vaporetto) through the Canal Grande. The Vaporetto starts at Piazzale Roma (a few minutes walking distance from the Pier). The ticket for all day Vaporetto use costs 10 Euro (last year) and allows you also to go e. g. to Isola Murano (glass manufacture) or to the Lido (beach). If you have time, also a walk from Piazzale Roma through the narrow walkways along the Canale and over Ponte Rialto is marvelous. It takes less than 1 hour. I recommend to use a city map to avoid to get lost.
Enjoy Venice, it is a wonder!
