The way to go is by vaporetto (water bus). They go from outside the railway station. You need a no 1. The nearest stop to the Do Pozzi is called Giglio - it's a short walk from there.

A single ticket is 7 euros, but it may be worth your while buying a pass. They are available for periods of 12 hours upwards. See www.actv.it/en/movinginvenice/movinginvenice

Th San Marco Giardinetti stop for the n°2 vaporetto is also not much further of a walk than the Giglio stop, and the n°2 is much more rapid.

The no 2 vaporetto is indeed a few minutes quicker than the no 1 but it doesn't run to the San Marco Giardinetti stop in the evening.

The n°2 line is actually quite a bit quicker, 28 minutes as vs. 41 for the n°1 according to the most recent schedule actv.it/sites/default/files/ultimorario.pdf. It runs from 8:51 in the morning to 7:51 in the evening from the Ferrovia stop all the way to San Marco Giardinetti.

The no 1 vaporetto takes 35 minutes from the railway station to Giglio, where you will be closest to the Do Pozzi.
