Venice, an app in the Art & Culture series, is something different in tourism: a cultural travel guide that offers comprehensive, expert coverage of all the sights and attractions, all the things to do and see, complete practical information and detailed maps.
Venice is the app that takes you deeper, with a definitive account of the city’s fabulous history, its culture and ceremony, its monuments and its art. We don’t do hotels and restaurants; instead, we offer a cultural companion that can enrich your visit like no other guide.
Venice reveals every aspect of the Serenissima’s history, architecture, art, festivals, personalities and oddities, in over 500 in-depth articles covering everything from Venice's courtesan culture to its role in the invention of opera, from the secrets of the mosaics in the Basilica at Torcello to the story behind Harry's Bar.
Thorough, erudite and sophisticated, but written with a sense of fun, Venice: Art & Culture is the creation of Dana Facaros and Michael Pauls, authors of over thirty Cadogan Guides and experts on all things Mediterranean. It’s also the first in a new series—Art & Culture Guides— that is dedicated to bringing the old ideal of an informed, serious guidebook into the digital world.
