Venice for Rookies is a revolutionary guidebook that finally got published this week! 171 pages of travel tips, ways to save, fun facts and amazing restaurant and pub listings for all those travelling to Venice. Bianca Reyes, the author, is a Venetian resident and decided to put all her advice in a handy, electronic format compatible with all the eReaders, smart phones, and tablets on the market.
While the city itself is a maze, there are other peculiarities that first-time Rookies need to be aware of. She wrote the guide keeping in mind what she liked about other guidebooks such as Lonely Planet, Rick Steve’s and the For Dummies guides. While each one has their target audience and speciality, this guide book has a mixed flavor of all three but with a Rookie twist, providing catchy icons such as “Interesting Fact”, “Rookie Savings”, “Rookie Pick”, “Recipe” and “Rookie Hint” to name a few. The tone is humorous and to the point which makes it a fun, light read. The information is dispersed in various ways such as historical tidbits or “Top 10” lists, so it’s great for those speed readers out there.
This Venice guidebook is made for all those who prefer authentic travel versus following the tourist herd. If you like to know where the locals eat, where the oldest taverns serve Veneto wines, or where to buy a Carnival mask, then this travel guide is for you.
