Great little book-we always use this set of books when we go away and they never fail. Nice compact guide, good color photos/glossy pages. has a map you can fold out, which is great. Guide has all river bus info to-including how to get cheaper tickets. We used this-saw all we wanted and had a great time.

A very handy book to have in Venice: it was our tour companion! The author really knows the places to go to get away from the crowds and his recommendations for places to eat were always spot on, offering excellent food and service for all budgets. If Jonathan Buckley recommends booking a restaurant in advance, then heed his advice as on the few occasions when we deviated from the guide, we fell straight into tourist traps! Without this book, I think we would have left Venice feeling like it was like Disneyland. Instead, we came away with happy memories of a beautiful city.

Superb. Great size (for carrying about), separate map and handy flap with vaporetti stops. Nice section on suggested itineraries. Restaurant recommendations seem a bit mixed - its all pretty pricey anyway! Overall, highly recommended and would choose this series for other cities.

I bought this for a recent trip, having heard that it's quite easy to get lost in Venice. The map included with the guide is not too big to use whilst out and about and is a definite must have. Quite an informative guide and worth the price.

The most valuable part of this was the map in the inside cover. It was far more detailed than the ones we got from the tourist office or the hotels (we stayed in two). The information was at the right level of detail and a nice mix of practicalities (especially about getting into Venice from the airport) and history. I've bought several of these pocket guides and this is definitely one of the best. With somewhere as close knit as Venice its easy to miss out on interesting snippets if you just go with the flow, having read the book before-hand we were much more focused and knew what we wanted to see. Mind you, I still want to back again - we only scratched the surface!

I bought this because I wanted a small book to carry around. Obviously it can't contain the same amount of information as a bigger guide book but it contained enough information to make some choices before I set off regarding getting around, places to visit and eat. Ideal for a first visit.

I spent 4 days in Venice and this great little pocket book was invaluable. With lots of handy information it helped us to plan our days and get about from the airport to Venice and then around the city and islands cheaply and efficiently.

The rough guide is a very handy pocket guide that we used every day during our week long stay in venice, we visited a lot of places suggested and used the information in the guide. The map was very handy as you need one whilst walking around.
