This site's English-language pages include maps, travel tips, lists of special
events, a handy list of gelato parlors, and more.
This Web site's "Piazza San Marco Virtuale" is an interactive map with
links to monuments, shops, musems, cafés, etc. The entire Venetia site is
indexed for handy navigation.

events calendar is also useful.
