Yes it is possible and will take anything from 30 mins to an hour and a half depending on how many times you get lost! The joy of Venice is exploring the narrow alleyways and the interesting shops and markets you pass along the way. Take your time and enjoy them, because the nearer you get to St Marks the more crowded and frustrating it will get. The route is sign posted, but intermittently, and there is always someone to ask. If all else fails you can always hop on a water taxi, but we managed to cover everything on foot quite happily.

It is easy - you just follow the yellow signs on the walls - it is fun trying to spot them. Will take around 30 mins. More if you stroll, get lost, stop for a beer and an ice cream......You either will go over Accademia or Rialto Bridge.

As Barbara said the signage is intermittent. Look for 'San Marco' at the start of alleyways, sometimes nothing more than black marker pen scribbled on the wall or home made little plywood signs. I think the walk as more to offer than the square itself. Regards Wilba.

I am so very grateful for your help on this and now my sister and myself will definitely be walking to St. Marks Square. However, if there are shops and markets on the way I think it might take us a bit longer to get there if we ever do! No worries though as we have been to Venice before and St. Marks Sq. Thanks to the three of you we are now very much looking forward to this walk. I take it that its quite safe, 2 females on their own? Thanks again, Jenny.

It is a lovely stroll which took us about 3 hours including two museums, one cafe and several shoe shops. We only got lost three times all near the beginning of the walk.

Shoe shops!! Now we are definitely walking. It should be a very interesting walk you took about 3 hours so thats probably how long its going to take us, could be a bit more especially as I now know there are shoe shops on the way. My "flexible friend" could well take a pounding here. Thank you very much for this information my sister will be delighted. Jenny.

By Amy Ginder

Amy Ginder's blog

This time of year we have a lot of calls asking for late availability for the school holidays. I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it is very late in the day. Most cruise lines have filled all of their 3 and 4 berth cabins and those that have space will charge you astronomical prices.So what do you do if you are looking to cruise in the school holidays? The answer is book early! Book now for 2018, if you leave it to nearer the time not only will the prices climb but you are unlikely to ge...

Airshow takes over Weston

By Emily Watts

Emily Watts's blog

One of the perks of living in a seaside town is the yearly airshow that comes to Weston Super Mare every June and lasts the whole weekend. The whole town is buzzing with excitement and ethusiasm, and plane enthusiasts alike. This weekend we were so lucky with weather, reaching the late twenties and even higher in some parts of the day.Not only do we have our skiers filled with amazingly aerodynamics performances but our beach lawns come to life thriving with people walking around the various...
