First Sentence
The origins of La Serenissima, as Venice would come to be known, were far from serene: rampaging Visigoths, Huns, Ostrogoths and Lombards drove thousands of terrified inhabitants of mainland towns out on to the muddy, flood-prone islets and sand banks of the lagoon in the fifth century AD. Read the first page

Let's get this one out in the open before I begin - I am NOT an anti-technology Luddite. Quite the opposite but I don't think that every device, breathlessly reviewed in some juvenile "lads-mag", is necessarily better than the thing it aims to replace and this Kindle edition of a Time Out guide is one of them.

Buy the book for £9.09 and you have yourself a decent guide to Venice. Whether you like or dislike the writing style of the Time Out guides is your choice; all I'm saying is stay away from the £8.09 Kindle edition.

Why? In the "old-fashioned" guide book you get maps that, although visually clumsy, will direct you towards establishments reviewed in the book. This is something that the authors of the Kindle edition didn't think you'd need. Worse still, the maps are not scalable, so unless you have a handy magnifying glass, forget using the Kindle maps at all. OK, the device I use to read my Kindle guide has a map application but do I have to keep switching between "apps", to discover where an establishment is?

To further rub salt into the wound, there are some new tablet savvy, "kids on the block", who are producing reasonable beta-versions of tablet guides. Not only are the maps scalable, but the establishments listed, (paid for inclusions I'm guessing, not impartial), are "click-able". Obviously this is the way to go. However, until the time comes when Time Out takes e-reader guides seriously - steer well clear of this turkey and buy the book.

Me encantan las guias TimeOut. Después de las guías Top10 (de bolsillo, muy manejables y resumidas, para no saturarse; y curiosamente con el mejor mapa), es la 2ª mejor guía. Tiene buenas recomendaciones de restaurantes (aunque termino fiándome también de las opiniones de TravelAdvisor). Y muchos recuadros amarillos que destacan cosas para no perderese o anecdotas históricas (se nota que lo escriben entre muchos expertos). The Rough Guide es perfecta para los monumentos que otras olvidan, más detalles en billetes/tarjetas/precios/paradas de vaporreti y sería mi tercera opción. Lonely Planet decae un poco (a mi gusto); y el ROutard-Trotamundos para olvidar (que pena, con lo buenas que me parecían).
Gelaterie, pasticcerie y bacaros, allá vamos!!

I bought this book before going on a 4 day trip to Venice. I found it totally confusing and a horrible read. Every recommendation seemed to end with 'now sit down and enjoy a nice glass of wine'. If you are on a budget this book is not for you. Everything that they recommend is very expensive and the book is full of adverts. If I hadn't of paid for this book I would have put it in the bin after the first day.

bought because am going to Verona but there are only 10 pages in the entire book on Verona, print is tiny (and my eyesight is pretty good) plus it's 7 years old so probably not up to date.

If you go to Venice this book or one similar is what you need to understand the history and significance of what you are looking at. The maps are adequate to get about.
