More like a stage than a city, Venice is the only city in the world built entirely on water. Its glorious palaces, historic churches and stunning art galleries have captivated visitors for centuries. Explore Venice is part of a brand-new series and is the perfect pocket companion for your trip: a full-color guide containing 14 easy-to-follow routes, taking in all of the classic sights, such as Piazza San Marco and La Salute church, as well as the atmospheric canals and sleepy little squares off the tourist track. For day-trippers or cruisers, there is a useful 'Venice in a Day' route that takes in all the city's must-sees. Insight's trademark cultural coverage perfectly sets the routes in context, with introductions to Venice's cuisine and shopping possibilities, as well as an overview of the city's famous Carnival and music and opera scene. Hand-picked places to eat and drink are highlighted in each tour and in the directory section, which contains a wealth of useful practical information including a language guide, as well as a range of carefully selected hotels to suit all budgets. All routes are plotted on the handy pull-out map, and the stunning photography captures the essence of Venice
Insight Guides wherever possible uses local experts who provide insider know-how and share their love and knowledge of the destination.
