 Venice: Italy's city of love, is one of the world's most favorite travel destinations

The Rough Guide to Venice & the Veneto:
This is the seventh edition of this very popular travel guide, and although it was published way back in 2007, a lot of the information is still relevant, particularly things like info about the city's history and culture, sightseeing spots and places-of-interest, as well as itinerary ideas, foods you should try and so on… The only fields where you can expect this guide to be somewhat outdated are accommodation, restaurants, nightlife and shopping (but that is EXACTLY why we have other free guides on our list)… Click here to view / download
