Venice: The ONLY guide you need
on 14 September 2015
This is the ONLY guide to Venice you need.
Beautifully laid out. Easy to use.
Each 'sestiere' (San Marco, Dosoduro, San Polo & Santa Croce, Cannaregio & the Grand Canal) are covered individually together with detailed maps linked directly to the text.
Each section has a concise history of the respective area together with detailed guides to major & minor sites of interest (some with floor plans linked to the text).
YOU WILL NOT NEED TO BUY EXPENSIVE SITE SPECIFIC GUIDES.
To the rear of the guide are indispensable listings for accomodation, eating & drinking together with nightlife. These are also linked to the respective area map for ease of finding them.
We used the accomodation to locate a hotel on the Grand Canal & it more than met the write up in the guide. The Eating & drinking section is well recommended for excellent 'true' Venetian food & drink not the tourist rip offs.
There are also plenty of local advice & tips on how to save money. Why spend €7.50 for each public ACTV water taxi trip when you can buy a 24 hour ticket which is unlimited for €20?.....
We'll say it again. This is the ONLY guide you need for Venice. Its the best £12.99 you will spend.
