A nice idea and well done! Our children (18, 10) were very eager and tinkered when we parents could no longer do it. The walkways were accepted without a murmur. A tip for users: It was a bit inconvenient for us that we went from St. Mark's Square to the starting point of the rally, because we then walked all the way back with the game (which you don't know beforehand). Depending on what you are planning to do in Venice, you should schedule the game as a solitaire in the morning or afternoon. It lasts quite a while without getting boring and is absolutely exciting and solvable.

Very good time spent. We took more than 3h30 because we took advantage of certain places. The puzzles are very nice with 1 or 2 puzzles difficult to complete due to work on buildings or 1 accessibility problems. It was still a great fun time to visit the city differently.
