1st time in Venice, some basic questions

Jump to last reply

We are going to Venice at the end of May and I've just got a couple of queries I'm hoping someone can help me with.
We have booked a food and wine tour for our first evening and the instructions say to meet our guide at Campo de la Maddalena which is in the Cannaregio region and we are staying close to San Marco square. On looking at the map showing boat routes I'm not sure which one we would take, I think it would be the 1, 3 or 4 from San Marco to Ca d'Oro and my question is are these one way only on the grand canal? The map shows them as doing a circular route which I imagine would take quite a while if it was the opposite way to what we wanted to go. I'm not sure I'm explaining myself very well but hoping someone understands me.
Also, we are possibly looking at booking for the Doges Palace but we've got so much planned we are struggling to fit it in, would you say it's a must see, does it take up a lot of the day?
Are there pre-paid cards available for all types of water transport for a few days duration and can these be bought online prior to going?
I'm sure I'll think of other things to ask as I'm looking further into the planning but would much appreciate any help on these queries.
