"The Secret Venice of Corto Maltese"

Books: "The Secret Venice of Corto Maltese" (I&V) Books Review

What to buy: "The Secret Venice of Corto Maltese" by Guido Fuga and Lele Vianello is the most interesting and the most unusual Venice travel guide. It is based on "the thirty years of uncountable walks made in Venice, together with the Maestro Hugo Pratt" and it is illustrated by Hugo Pratt, Guido Fuga and Lele Vianello. "The Secret Venice of Corto Maltese" manages to bring the atmosphere of Corto Maltese comic books in the real, common tourist paths… It is valuable part of "equipment" for any tourist in Venice who has the ambition to see more than San Marco and Rialto.

It is not easy to find and buy "The Secret Venice of Corto Maltese" on the internet, but it is available at almost every bookshop in Venice. A bit more than 15 Euros is well spent money.

Here is what you can read on the back cover of English edition: "Seven itineraries of drawings, imagination and practical advice, discovering masterpieces, courtyards and Stones imbued with history, fables and legends, but also osterias, restaurants and the 'right' places for a drink, a meal or simply, to savour a particular atmosphere or mood in a secluded, magical, 'hidden' Venice: the Venice of Corto Maltese."

Directions: 10' walk from the train station

Venice de Agostini Street Map - Venice

Venice de Agostini Street Map

The Best Map of Venice

What to buy: As many had pointed on VT and everywhere else – the only way to see the Venice is to walk, walk, walk… all over it. It could be very nice to get lost in the labyrinth of narrow Venetian streets, but sometimes is good to know the exact location or something great, important, interesting… just around the corner, could be missed. Therefore the map is needed.

Venice de Agostini Street Map is an excellent pick. It is huge, it has booklet with place name index and all the public buildings are marked. Besides that it is pretty easy to unfold it and to fold it again.

What to pay: Although the price of about 6 Euros may seem a bit on the high side, the map is worth of that, or even more comparing it to the other maps.

Spritz T-shirt

Spritz – More Than Just a Cocktail (I&V)

The "local custom" called spritz seems to be very popular. So popular that drinking it is not enough :-) Spritz T-shirt could be a nice souvenir from Venice. It can be found on Campo Francesco Morosini.
