Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 4 June 2007
I'm usually a big fan of the Eyewitness series but this chunky guide has a few problems. I used it to find some information on the Peggy Guggenheim gallery and despite stating that it was one of Venice's most visited attractions, it devoted less than a page to it. The much shorter Top Ten guide on Venice (also published by Dorling Kindersley) gives it two pages and names it as one of the city's essential sights.

Also, the use of hand-drawn maps is not ideal. In particular one of the Dolomites succeeds in being childish rather than charming and doesn't provide the clarity offered by a computer-produced image needed by visitors to the region.

Overall I think the Top Ten guide offers better value and more balanced coverage, despite being much shorter.
