Extremely Handy and Practical
on 6 January 2014
As a map guide through Venice this is excellent. There is sufficient information on the main things to see and suggested restaurants, museums, important sites etc. Well written and succinct information.
The size of the Map Guide is well thought out and fits easily into a pocket (the size of a very slim paperback). The maps are printed on stiff paper so are resistant to folding in a stiff breeze. There are five maps A to E each covering a part of the City with streets (Calle) and quays (Fondamenta), squares (Campo) - except St Mark's square which is a piazza, bridges (ponte) all indicated clearly.
In a narrow street with hundreds of other visitors milling around, you will find it easy to use and unobtrusive. A must for Venice - whatever other guide books you may take along.
