- Public Vaporetto: If you're taking line 1 of the Vaporetto, get off at San Marco Vallaresso. Have opted for line 2 instead? Get off at San Zaccaria and walk to St. Mark's Square. Once you reach there, spot the Bell Tower and diagonal to it you'll find the Doge's Palace.
- Private Water taxi: If you don't wish to travel in a public water taxi, you can book a private one. Most of the private water taxis will be waiting for passengers outside hotels. Just ask the driver to drop you near the Doge's Palace and he'll do the rest.
