Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

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 jewellery to provocative ceramics.



As well as detailed reviews and maps for world-famous attractions through to hidden treasures, Venice Pocket Precincts also includes a selection of field trips encouraging you to venture further afield to Padua, Vicenza and Verona. And all information has been considered in light of the coronavirus pandemic.



Slip this guide into your pocket and head off on an adventure, experiencing authentic places in Venice and surrounds like a local.

Born to a Venetian father and a Piedmontese mother, Australian-born travel writer Cristian Bonetto has experienced Italy as both a local and a visitor, providing him with a unique perspective on the country and its many shades. For almost 15 years, the former TV scriptwriter has written scores of travel guides and articles on the country, most notably for Lonely Planet. Cristian has a particular soft spot for Venice and the Veneto, home of his ancestors and a corner of the Bel Paese (Beautiful Country) that constantly inspires with its cultural riches and backstory. Cristian also writes for UK broadsheet The Telegraph.
