Are travel guides a thing of the past in this internet age? I say absolutely not! If you are planning a vacation trip to a new and historic city, a well-written travel guide can enhance your experience tremendously. Having recently spent two weeks on vacation in Venice, Italy, I can attest to the usefulness of the 5 Best Venice Travel Books I've spotlighted below. Each one has a unique and very different approach, style and intent and when used together can help make your experience in the city of Venice that much more satisfying and well-informed.
It doesn't matter if you are looking for tips on exploring Venice on a budget, finding the best restaurants and places to stay, planning a day trip excursion to the Veneto or perhaps wanting to learn about "Secret Venice" and the many mysteries of the city most tourists never learn about. These books provided us with invaluable information and insight on our recent trip and I can assure you will find them equally useful as well.
