About the Book

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 café 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.
