Book Description

Aug. 31 2010 Rick Steves' Venice
You can count on Rick Steves to tell you what you really need to know when visiting the island city of Venice. Following the self-guided tours in this book, you'll explore Venice's most important landmarks and cruise the Grand Canal for a close-up look at the elegant palaces, bridges, and churches. You'll discover picturesque lanes, enjoy the best city views, and tour outlying islands in the lagoon. Dine at a romantic canal-side restaurant, or join the locals at a characteristic cicchetti bar and munch seafood-on-a-toothpick. As the stars shine over St. Mark's Square, sway to the free music of cafe orchestras. Rick's candid, humorous advice will guide you to good-value hotels and restaurants. You'll learn how to explore Venice hassle-free and get up-to-date advice on what's worth your time and money. More than just reviews and directions, a Rick Steves guidebook is a tour guide in your pocket.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential May 28 2011
By Florida lassie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is THE guidebook for Venice. A very crowded place to visit (we went in late March). On any given day 90% of the people are tourists, so most of the streets are filled with people who have no idea where they want to be but are trying to get there anyway. The water buses were as crowded but at least everyone knew where the boat was going. We used Rick Steves' advice to book our hotel - just off St Marks, when to go to major attractions, what to look for and what could be left for another day. In a tourist town his restaurant recommendations were spot on. We ate great meals at places we wouldn't have found on our own. Except for a good street map, you will not require another guide.

3.0 out of 5 stars Maps in Kindle Format Feb. 16 2011
By Reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The information is great, like always with Rick Steves. However, the maps are not useful in the regular Kindle format due to the extremely small size. The available zoom is not sufficient. I hope this can be corrected in future versions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Guide Book for Venice June 28 2011
By TSKnoxville - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Rick Steves' book on Venice is an excellent guide, especially the walking tours. Venice is a must-see, and this book is a must-have.

I wish that I'd had time to peruse the book before I traveled... Rick's website has a number of FREE downloadable audio guides.

A very complete view of Venice. Well organized and good choices of the walking tours. Could strengthen the restaurant and shopping sections.
