Take a compass because the tourist maps of Venice, which are OK for general direction, aren’t detailed enough for the myriad of very small alleyways and streets you have to navigate through. You lose your bearings very quickly, and end up either lost or going round in circles. Fun, but can be frustrating.
An amazing and unique guidebook. If only every city was written about with such passion and knowledge. This book is not your average Lonely Planet/Rough Guide/Time Out book and doesn't do restaurant or hotel listings. However, it unlocks the magic of Venice, takes you to some hidden places you probably wouldn't otherwise find and even makes you laugh. Links talks about having a Campari in Piazza San Marco on Christmas Day - if that's not dedication to a city then I don't know what is. A review describes it as not only the best guidebook to Venice, but the best guidebook to any city ever written. High praise indeed.
