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.

Traditional or Freestyle ? Whi...

By Camilla Edwards

Carnival`s decision to introduce a new rule of traditional diners on their ships made me think of the whole subject of when, where and with whom do you choose to dine on your cruise. On board Carnival Glory and Carnival Conquest passengers who opt for first or second sitting traditional dining will be turned away from the restaurant if they are more than 30 minutes late for their selected seating. So that means be there on time , and probably queue to get on, or go to the buffet.Dining time s...

One Stop Shop !

It is amazing how many guest I have spoken to over the last few weeks that have booked excursions through the cruise liner, which I may add are quite expensive. Cruise liners make a lot of money selling excursions at a hefty premium, but many people are happy to pay the extra because booking with the ship is the easy option and they have the comfort of knowing the captain will not leave port until everyone on his ships tours is back on board. I totally understand the reasons behind this but b...
