Someone needs to publish a book of places to go in Venice where they won't totally rip you off, and a guide to negotiating on prices in Venice. Everything there is negotiable- that is one thing I didn't learn in this guidebook.
Its really crowded there, so don't go if you can't take crowds or if you have trouble walking up and down lots of steps over canals.
Neither of us had ever been to Venice and my wife left the navigation and site-selection largely to me, but we were still able to find our way through the notoriously tiny, twisty streets and alleys and over key canal bridges (and if you miss those you can be much closer to your destination and yet have to back-track to find a bridge). The waterbus routes and stops were clear. So, as total beginners we were able to devise wonderful agendas and walks from day to day before setting out, with flexibility to shift around and modify in the field.
The paper and image quality make the book attractive as a souvenir-memoire that we have filed on our bookshelf. We also used the Florence and Rome DK Eyewitness guides with equally excellent results for stays of five nights each. In each of those cities we started with one of the recommeded walks, which were a great way to start and get our bearings.
