Book Description

19 Jan 2011 Berlitz Pocket Guides
This fully revised and updated Berlitz Pocket Guide is packed with all the information you need to enjoy Venice. Places to go are explored within easy-to-use, colour-coded sections, so you can locate the information you need at a glance. The city's top 10 attractions are conveniently identified on a dedicated double-page spread to help you plan your trip and ensure that you see the very best sights and include Basilica di San Marco, The Grand Canal, The Accademia, Bridge of Sighs and the spectacular Palazzo Ducale. The brand new 'A Perfect Day in Venice' feature is designed to link all the most exclusive experiences that won't fail to inspire you. All areas are covered in-depth, including Venice's surrounding islands of Murano and The Lido, alongside full-colour photographs that give a highly visual introduction to this stunning destination. Full colour fold-out maps provide instant orientation wherever you and include transport maps for easy navigation. A concise history chapter and the handy cultural tips throughout the guide combine to give you a deeper understanding of Venice's past and present, and there are also plenty of ideas for how to spend your leisure time, whatever your interests, from chic shopping and classical opera to gondola rides and outdoor activities for children. The handy calendar included ensures that you won't miss out on the city's festivals and main cultural events throughout the year. The 'Eating Out' chapter recommends local specialities and provides full listings for all the best places to eat and drink, including useful Italian phrases to help you read the menu and place your orders. Further Italian phrases can be found on the front cover flap, ideal for quick reference. The comprehensive 'Travel Tips' section provides an A-Z summary of all the expert practical advice you will need, including reliable recommendations of hotels to suit all budgets, information on health, transport, climate and currency, tips for travellers with disabilities and much more. Small in size but big on content, this guide will help you truly get to the heart of this fabulous city and all it has to offer.

4.0 out of 5 stars Useful, interesting, a good starting point 10 Jun 2012
By Laura
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was fine for a few days exploring Venice - some good ideas and useful/interesting info (though some details seemed a bit out of date). We bought a larger city map once there for about 2 or 3 euros, which was a good supplement for finding our way around. Small and light - pocket-sized!
