Everybody has a Venice they love. For the history, for the art, for the sheer beauty of the city. So what is left to be discovered? Quite a lot.

This book is for the art tourist – a growing band of art-savvy travellers who are seeking a more bespoke, original cultural experience. Art insider and Venetian expert, Sophie Ullin, offers up the city’s more discrete, less touristy, but no less fabulous artworks, churches, museums and spaces to give readers a sense of the layers and secrets of Venice.

With a dedicated section of solid gold information on how to do the Biennale – the Olympics of the art world – Sophie takes you by the hand and explains how to navigate this city for the ultimate art experience.
