About Venice for Visitors

Also see: What our readers say about Venice for Visitors

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 via a state-of-the-art Content Delivery Network with more than 150 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 a minimum of advertising plus commissions from Europe's No. 1 secure reservations site, Booking.com, which we use for our own business and vacation travel.)
