    Very easy to find. Right outside the shuttle bus gate from the cruise ship. there was a lot of confusion with all the buses so I asked someone and they directed me to the end bus and that took us to the Port welcome center. Walk out and there is a group of tour people waiting to direct you to the correct tour/shuttle bus. We eere supposed to be there at 8:30 AM to leave by 9 AM and I think we actually left 9:45 am. I believe they were waiting for a couple that never showed up.. Overall easy and inexpensive way to transport you and your luggage to Vatican City or Roma Termini train station.

    Good connection, from the port with the ship's hut to the parking lot and from there into the bus that was already there. We could even take the bus half an hour earlier. Exit in Vatican City has been well received. After a short orientation I came on the right path. Are just under 10 minutes to St. Peter's Square from the exit.

    I had tickets purchased 1 month in advance. I was the first to arrive at the meeting point an hour early. I had to fight to get on the bus. A person was selling tickets at the entrance without consideration for tickets bought in advance. Good luck to the future user
