Durant and Cheryl ImbodenVenice for Visitors began life in early 1996 as "The Baby Boomer's Venice." In 1997, it became Venice for Visitors at The Mining Co. (later renamed About.com). We've operated the site independently since 2001 as the most popular section of Europe for Visitors (our Forbes and Washington Post "Best of the Web" site about European travel and cruising).

PC Magazine has called this site "the premier visitors' site for Venice, Italy," and we've been featured in other publications ranging from guidebooks to Germany's most prestigious weekly newspaper, Die Zeit.

Over the years, we've invested countless hours and many thousands of euros in creating, maintaining, and publishing useful material for independent travelers--and in serving it from 28 data centers around the world.

Everything here is free.

You don't need to buy an e-book, an app, or a subscription to read our in-depth information and advice. We run fewer ads than most travel-planning sites do, we don't solicit donations, and we don't sell links or publish "sponsored content." (We support our site with ads and booking commissions. If you'd like to help feed a hungry dog, use the Venere and Booking.com links in our Venice Hotel Guide.)

Thanks,
