The book is very small - the size of a DL envelope. Consequently it is easy to carry around, and to put in your pocket. Its weight is very low so it won't weigh on your pocket.
It is divided by area with restaurant reviews for each, plus recommendations for shops, bars and hotels.
It can't provide detail - it can provide `the big picture'.
I now normally take two travel guides with me - one of these Top 10 ones and a detailed travel guide, to get the best of both worlds. If you just have a detailed travel guide, you can miss out on things that you wish you had visited.
On a separate issue, I prefer the paperback version over the Kindle version. I previously bought the Kindle version of a different DK Top 10 Eyewitness travel guide (for the Algarve) because I am a Kindle lover - to my surprise, I found the Kindle format terribly irritating. It taught me that when using a travel guide, you want to be able to flick quickly through it and jump around easily - that's SO much easier with a physical book.
In addition, you want it to be in colour - you can cure that by taking your iPad with you but an iPad is bigger and heavier than this book in its paperback version. You can get round that if you have an iPad mini or a large screen smartphone but you are still left with the problem of being unable to flick around the book quickly.
Travel guides just don't work well in the Kindle format, in my opinion.
You may feel otherwise but that is how I feel. I found the relative awkwardness in flicking around the Kindle book a major handicap. And this is despite the fact that I buy most of my books in Kindle format.
What I am saying is that this is a great book but my personal preference is to buy the paperback version.
There is, no doubt, someone at Penguin books with a job title along the lines of 'Head of Electronic Media (Travel Publishing)'. S/he should take a look at this Kindle version and be put on the naughty step until s/he comes up with something better. It really wouldn’t be that difficult.
Great tips in there, but feel some things are now out of date already, but only the odd thing.
I was also hoping for a bit more practical tips and sadly doesn't name all sites to see in Venice.
Also names some of the palaces you can see, but they're not open for the general public to visit.
However this guide was useful in showing me the top 10 things I needed to see while visiting Venice.
