Venice with Ciao Bella

Dear Italy lovers,

Ages ago, I lived in Venice and I fell in love ... with its inky evenings, nippy mornings and amazing art. Every day, I explored the six sestieri (neighborhoods) and discovered a gorgeous and contemporary floating city.  In this guide, I give you my Venice from restaurants, cocktail bars and bacari to art galleries, museums, boutiques and off-island escapes. It's not always easy to scratch below the surface and get out the gondola. Everyone needs a friend in Venice, so consider me yours.
This guide includes 145 places.

Do I need to be on line to access the guide?

Yes, wifi or cellular service will do.

How did you choose the places in this guide?

Trial and tasting, over and over and over again. I visit Venice at least four times a year, so I am always making sure everything I love is still loveable.

Why I pay for this guide?

Easy, because you can find everything I recommend and write about in one spot.  And because by buying this guide, you keep me motivated to do more. I self-fund everything I do- from my website and podcast Ciao Bella, to all of my adventures in art, archaeology and food.  And I'm pretty shy about promoting my projects.

Can I share this guide with fellow travel companions or friends?

Yes! You can give 1 person access to your guide.
