Publisher Comments:

Insight Step by Step Venice is the perfect travel guide to this unique city, the only city in the world built entirely on water. We show you where to go and what to do in 14 beautifully illustrated walks and canal tours. Easy-to-follow full-color maps accompany the routes, and there’s travel advice on places to eat and drink along the way.

More like a stage set than a city, Venice has captivated visitors for centuries. Although dazzling it can also be overwhelming, which is where Insight Step by Step Venice comes in – we give you the best way to explore beyond Piazza San Marco, showing you routes through the warren of narrow alleys and back canals and into rambling squares lined with delightful cafés and bars.

Be inspired by Venice’s Carnival, visit hidden away churches and bars, take a gondola along the Grand Canal, enjoy watching glass-making on Murano. Whatever your mood, Insight Step by Step Venice is the ideal travel guide, giving you a tour to suit your day.
