Format: Paperback
I used this book and Fodor's on a recent trip to Venice. I was surprised at the differences between the two. This book was better for step by step touring: go here, turn left, stop and see the following, etc. But it was inferior to Fodor's when it came to lists of places to eat and sleep. For example, dining in the vicinity of Piazza San Marco: Fodor's gives a paragraph on each of 19 different restaurants (a little unbalanced in favor of high-end actually) but this guide gives only 6, and one is a gelateria and two were overpriced touristy cafes. Another defect in this book is that the maps are often not to scale, which can be misleading when you are trying to navigate, and is to me a kind of cheap way to do a book, frankly. So if you choose to buy this book also invest in a detailed map and spend some time on [...] to get more comprehensive information on dining and sleeping options.

I took this guidebook to Venice on my Kindle and found that it was completely adequate - no regrets or wishing for a paper copy. I took a separate, laminated travel map. There are hot links throughout the travel guide, including the table of contents so it is easy to find what you need. A touch of humor in the text. I wish I had downloaded the audio guides from Rick Steves' website - then it would have been perfect. I was able to take 2 novels along with the travel guide - don't think I will ever buy another paper travel guide again.

I use Rick Steves' guide books & Streetwise maps for every city I can...even the restaurant selections are good...It's best to read the guide before you go, however if you're going to multiple cities as I just did then that may not be possible...it's a good idea to go to the Rick Steves' website or to iTunes & download his tours on your iPod...so much better than having to have a guide...

I used this book when I was in Venice. It has great explanations on how to get around in Venice such as how the waterbus system works. Wonderful restaurant recommendations.

Going to Venice this July! I received this book two days ago from Amazon. I'm amazed at how much information is in this coat pocket sized guide. All photos inside are black & white, but you need information, right? You will not only know where to go, and how to get there.... you will also know the history of the sites you visit. Since I have never been to Venice before, I cannot comment on its accuracy... but I trust what other reviewers have said on that point! This guide shows where to catch water buses, water taxis and gondolas... It also points out Rick's favorite hotels, restaurants and bars! I will continue to study this book for the next six months so that when I DO go there, I'll arrive with camera in hand, ready to capture the images of my liftime.

I bought the Rick Steves guides for a recent 2 week trip to Italy and they made the trip so easy. The guides are easy to figure out, have great recommendations on places to eat, sleep, see. The walk-though tours of various museums are great (& save you money on an audio guide - especially if you use in combo with his Italy podcasts). The descriptions and maps are easy to follow too. We ate at several of his recommended restaurants and were never disappointed. The guides are also light weight so you can easily carry them around all day for easy reference. I highly recommend these to anyone planning a trip to Italy (we used the Venice, Rome, Cinque Terre & Almafi Coast guide as well as the Italian Phrasebook & the free pod-casts).
He has some great tips for avoiding lines as well - be sure to check out the tip on using the FREE bag-check at St. Mark's Basillica to avoid the line.

I love travel books that make sense to me and this one does. I can pick it up and read parts, put it down and go back later to another section and right to that section. Rick and Gene write to the traveler and they writes it in people words. This book is informative, interesting and really makes me excited about going to Venice. They speaks in layman's terms...uses words that regular people can understand.
