Venice Tourist Board
The APT Venezia is a good source of information about special events,
sightseeing itineraries, and other topics that we don't cover in depth at Venice
for Visitors. For practical information, you're better off using our site or
visiting one of the tourist office's locations in Venice.
Little Guide to
Christine Jenner's travel-planning site has the theme "Discover
the most beautiful city in the world." It's an attractive site with readable
writing, good photos, and enough information to help you plan a short trip.
In Venice Today
Much of this site consists consists of links, but the
is definitely worth your time, and so is the extensive
photo tour. The
section lists opening hours, times, and current exhibitions.
VeniceWord International Media
Besides providing news coverage for events and organizing conferences, this
Venice-based firm supplies general tourism advice on its Web site.
Norman Hajjar's well-written blog claims to be the "only Venice-focused blog in
existence," and it's a good source of news and other timely reports from Venice.
Business listings and convention planning are this site's main strengths. The
events calendar is also useful. (If the home page displays in Italian, be
patient: the English version should open in a few seconds.)
Venice Convention Center
The Centro Congressi di Venezia caters to groups of every kind, ranging
from the Venice Film Festival to conferences of scientists and insurance
brokers. (Click "English" at the top of the home page if you don't read Italian.)
