Venice Pocket Precincts is your curated guide to the city’s best cultural, shopping, eating and drinking experiences, with each precinct covering the best of Venice’s sestieri. Venice is an improbable, inimitable masterpiece. Emerging from the Adriatic as if by miracle, its storybook palaces and churches burst with top-tier frescoes, monuments and Insta-snapping tourists. But the place known as La Serenissima is more than this. Slip into its calli (streets) to discover the city lived and loved by locals; a maze of dirt-cheap, canal-side bacari (Venetian bars), progressive restaurants and artisan studios crafting everything from handmade jewelry to provocative ceramics.
As well as detailed reviews and maps for world-famous attractions through to hidden treasures, this guide also includes a selection of field trips encouraging you to venture further afield to Padua, Vicenza and Verona.
Slip this guide into your pocket and head off on an adventure, experiencing authentic places in Venice and surrounds like a local.
