Book Description

10 Oct 2013 Rick Steves
You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when visiting the island city of Venice. Following the self-guided tours in this book, you'll explore Venice's most important landmarks and cruise the Grand Canal for a close-up look at the elegant palaces, bridges, and churches. You'll discover picturesque lanes, enjoy the best city views, and tour outlying islands in the lagoon. Dine at a romantic canal-side restaurant, or join the locals at a characteristic cicchetti bar and munch seafood-on-a-toothpick. As the stars shine over St. Mark's Square, sway to the free music of cafe orchestras. Rick's candid, humorous advice will guide you to good-value hotels and restaurants. You'll learn how to explore Venice hassle-free and get up-to-date advice on what's worth your time and money. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket.

Specializing in writing walking tours of Europe's cultural sights, Gene has coauthored 10 of Rick's books and contributes to Rick's public television series.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT GUIDE BOOK 13 Jan 2014
By S Trexler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Have read guidebook cover to cover and ready for trip to Venice in April. Well worth the nominal price that's charged through Amazon. Added bonus are the free podcasts that can be downloaded from Rick Steve's website and used throughout the trip with your iPhone, iPad, mp3 player, etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent primary travel guide! 30 Mar 2014
By marianne trudeau - Published on Amazon.com
I thoroughly agree! Rick Steves never disappoints. I love all the additional multimedia info. This guidebook is quite detailed, without ever boring the reader.. as with all of Steves' travel guides, he engages us with his sense of humor and amiability.

5.0 out of 5 stars HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Save time, money, and find the best things to do 7 July 2014
By Nick McGlaun - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rick Steves' is always my 1st go-to when it comes to travel/vacationing information. Most of his books are available on amazon as ebooks/kindle books - this is my preference because I can load them on my iPhone's kindle app for easy access on the go (and don't forget you can search keywords to find info quickly, unlike with a regular book). Rick's Venice 2014 book was great: I have been to Venice before as part of a study-abroad program, but went back recently with my brother and we trusted his book to help us develop and prioritize an agenda to get the best out of a short 48 hour stay. He definitely didn't let us down!
Venice-goers are reminded that if your a tense, gotta-follow-a-strictly-scheduled itinerary-or-I-stress type , you probably won't enjoy yourself too much. Why? Because Venice is LITERALLY a maze. Keeping this in mind, we'd just do our best to walk in a new general direction each day, and when we found an easily identifiable spot, we'd load up Rick's Venice 14 and see what he recommended to do/where to eat/what to see in that area, and we were never disappointed! That said, there are a must-see/do things you should plan ahead:
1) St. Marks Bascillica (book as far ahead as possible - highly unlikely to be able to walk up and purchase tickets day/week of)
2) Doges palace - my brother and I actually did buy tickets day of for this. If your don't want to stress and rush for an appointment w/ a tour group, this could be the way to go IF you're ok with doing the standard self guided tour w/ an audio headset. OTHERWISE: book a tour ahead online. I highly recommend the "secret agendas" tour (rick tells you a bit about it I believe). I did this my first time on Venice. Definitely was worth it.

Get this book before your Venice trip if you want to save time, money, and max out the fun and exiting opportunities on your trip!

5.0 out of 5 stars Relaible as usual 22 May 2014
By DROCK - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
We have used Rick Steves books for years on many European vacations, and they have never done us wrong, particularly if you are a budget traveler. No nonsense, mostly clear and concise directions and information, particularly valuable for budget travelers. Travel cheap and travel more, and Rick's books will help.
