S. Zaccaria

From: Venice Waterbus Stops

San Zaccaria is one of Venice's largest and most important waterbus stations--and one of the most confusing, because it's spread out along the Venetian waterfront east of the Piazza San Marco and the Doge's Palace.

The station complex includes four distinct substations: three on a common stretch of the Riva degli Schiavoni, and another large, modern substation (called "Pietá" on some maps) across a footbridge to the right in the satellite photo above.

The San Zaccaria station complex is served by a large number of boat lines:
