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.

Following on from Part 1 of by thoughts on Harmony of the SeasWe had purchased the wine and beer package but quickly realised that upgrading to the Ultimate package was better value for money from Cocktails to soft drinks, wine and beer they had it all, lots of cast ales in the English pub and really good quality wines from around the world, my favourite was from New Zealand, a Sauvignon Blanc Villa Maria that they served in the main Dining room, the food was outstanding there are so many eat...

Themed cruises all the way.

By Ruby Perkins

Ruby Perkins's blog

I had to smile this week when I read about Bonnie Tyler making a guest appearance on board ‘Oasis of the seas’ to help get passengers in the spirit to experience the Solar eclipse. Very clever Royal Caribbean, it’s almost as good as an episode of ‘Homes under the hammer’.Bonnie will be belting out her 80’s hit ‘Total eclipse of the heart’ alongside American rock dance band DNCE in the Aqua Theater about an hour before the eclipse next week. You ...

Southampton Port Parking I...

By Camilla Edwards

Camilla Edwards's blog

I always think arriving at the airport or port is really the start of the holiday but last time I cruised from Southampton it was a bit of a nightmare and very stressful. Traffic jams between Oxford and Newbury made us, and many other passengers, late to start with and on arriving at the cruise terminal the queues were horrendous to say the least. Sitting in a car for an hour and a half looking at Ventura is not the best start to anyone`s cruise. Fortunately we had booked Valet Parking so on...
