Including details for starting out, from airport to shops, this guide splits each destination into geographical zones, and provides a colour-coded overview of the top attractions and includes informative articles to set the scene.
This guide combines bright, modern design, witty and informative writing with a unique and very practical fold-back-flat spiral binding. A collection of readable features set the scene in the introductory Magazine section. "Finding Your Feet" gives that vital info to get you started. Venice is then split into geographical zones. The must-see sights are covered in depth with insider tips to help you make the most of your time and beat the crowds; suggested itineraries, walks and tours, super-clear maps, where to take a break and where to shop are detailed for each area. And to make sure you're not disappointed, specialist food and drink writers recommend the best places to eat and drink.
