This is a great book if you are visiting Venice

Jump to last reply

Venice: Italy Heaven Guide by Emily Hammond is marvelous with great walks and restaurant recommendations and lots of fascinating tidbits. (We rented an apartment, so I can't comment on the lodging section.) We've just spent a week in Venice, and this is by far the best and most comprehensive and useful guidebook I've found. I looked at many books at my local library and also brought along Rick Steve's Venice (great for the nitty-gritty on logistics etc.) and the Lonely Planet.

The major downside though to Hammond's book is that it is only available electronically, so we had to buy it for our Kindle. E-books have their place and are great for reading but difficult to manipulate as travel guidebooks. But, the hassle of using it was definitely worth it. Highly recommended.
