This is really only for very well off people who have personal guides. There is no way of linking a mentioned place to a map so if you don't know your way round Venice you don't know where to go to find the place. And it doesnt tell you about the art galleries museums or churches to visit. It has nice photos of lovely restaurants with no guide prices but I suspect all expensive. The shopping section is frankly a joke. I must be missing the point. It has about fourteen blank sides at the end for 'sketches and memos'. Utterly useless.
