Small yet comprehensive, this mini-guide covers all of Venice, from famous attractions like the canals, St. Mark's, and the Doge's Palace to hidden gems of art and architecture known only to residents. Itineraries and dining and lodging options are included for all tastes and budgets.
The Time Out Venice Shortlist guide includes all essential visitor information, presented in a way that is designed to take you straight to what you're looking for: reviews of Venice's classic sights and venues in area-by-area chapters, maps with all entries pinpointed, customised itineraries and visitor basics, all illustrated with specially commissioned photography. To help you make city-wide choices, the Time Out Venice Shortlist includes critical and useful venue selections in a variety of fields - our Shortlists. Beyond Venice's best-known glories, in St Mark's square and at the Rialto, lies a fascinating - but dauntingly complex - labyrinth of lesser-known and lesser-visited treasures. With the Time Out Venice Shortlist in hand, this world reveals itself to the visitor. Advice, explanations and recommendations from local experts and long-time residents are easily followed up thanks to clear maps.
Founded in 1968, Time Out has grown from humble beginnings into the leading resource for anyone wanting to know what's happening in the world's greatest cities. Alongside our influential weeklies in London, New York, Chicago and Dubai, we publish more than 20 magazines in cities as varied as Beijing and Beirut; a range of travel books, with City Guides now joined by pocket-sized Shortlist series; and an information-packed website. The company remains proudly independent, still owned by Tony Elliott four decades after he launched Time Out London. Written by local experts, and illustrated with original photography, our books also retain their independence. No business has been featured because it has advertised, and all restaurants and bars are visited and reviewed anonymously.
