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 Venice
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 Curiosity section is definitely worth your time, and so is the extensive photo tour. The Museums/Exhibitions section lists opening hours, times, and current exhibitions.

VeniceWord International Media Services
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.)
