The Rough Guide to Venice & the Veneto, long established as the most thorough and reliable guide to the city and its surroundings, has been completely redesigned and updated for this ninth edition. Unrivaled in its coverage of the Doge's Palace, the Basilica di San Marco and all the other major sights, the Rough Guide also reveals the treasures to be found in the districts that lie off the usual tourist trails - and has plenty of maps to make sure you find them easily. As well as being packed with stories that illuminate the city's history, the Rough Guide tells you more about the city as it is today than any other guidebook, with features on everything from flood-prevention projects to the travails of Venice's football team. It will tell you the best places to stay, eat and drink, in all price ranges, from backwater bars to gourmet restaurants, from homely B&Bs to spectacular Grand Canal hotels. Make the most of your time with The Rough Guide to Venice & the Veneto.
