Put together by members of the Faculty of Architecture at Milan University, it is a fascinating companion that reveals a great deal about the city both past and present. Scholarly and occasionally technical in tone, it will appeal most to visitors with an established interest in the field.
Thomas Cook's interpretation of Northern Italy in fact stretches as far south as Florence, taking in Venice along the way. In a series of 24 fantastic proposed tours, numerous regions are covered in good detail, with plenty of maps and photographs as well as sightseeing, accommodation and restaurant tips. With so much ground covered in one book, those straying from the suggested routes will perhaps find detail lacking.
A comprehensive practical companion for the budget-conscious independent traveller that also offers plenty of contextual reading material. Those visiting Verona as part of a Lakes tour, rather than from Venice and the rest of the Veneto, will find the chapter on that city most helpful.
Alta McAdam's unrivalled cultural guide is now in its 8th edition and still offers new treasures on every page. For an in-depth exploration of the artistic and architectural wonders of the city, look no further.

All presented in the usual LP grayscale, with some colour photographs adorning the glossy early pages.
After excellent introductory chapters the city is covered alphabetically by region, with sights suggested and explained along with recommended restaurants and the like. Later pages are devoted to the outlying islands and the Veneto more broadly, including Verona. A solid guide for a comfortable exploration.

An excellent little companion offering 8 car tours and 26 walks for all ages and abilities. Each route is well mapped and annotated, with plenty of colour photographs throughout and plenty of general travel tips.
