The Venice Book

A Personal Guide to the City's Art & Culture

Sophie Ullin


An art-lover’s guide to Venice: perfect for visitors to the Biennale


Art is back, and there is no better place to immerse oneself in the crossroads of contemporary versus historic than in Venice.

Everybody has a Venice they love. For its narrative, for its culture, for the sheer beauty of the place. The Venice Book offers up la serenissima's lesser known, less touristy, but no less fabulous artworks, foundations, churches and spaces to give art vivants a sense of the layers and secrets of Venice. Including art itineraries and an essential guide to navigating the Olympics of the art world, the Biennale, this is the book for everyone who's ever dreamt of Venice.
