Moving around Venice, particularly for those who have just arrived for their first visit, can seem like a maze of narrow alleyways linked by the odd plaza and by what appears to be hundreds of little bridges, and it almost is! Once you get used to the style and layout of Venice though, it becomes much clearer, exciting and, thankfully, forgiving.

Venice has available, much like every other major city as far as tourists are concerned, street maps and other free brochures to aid your navigation whilst visiting and also point you in the direction of all the city’s major sites and attractions. It is also worth having a look at your travel guides (which invariably include several small maps) or doing a bit of research prior to arrival in order to give yourself a fighting chance of finding your hotel slightly more easily.

Visit the official tourism website at or alternatively pick up your free maps and guides at various locations including St Mark’s Square and all the arrival points such as the airport, train station and Piazzale Roma. has a comprehensive list of the world’s main stages including of course, Venice.

Lonely Planet provide a helpful map along with photo’s facts and videos at provides a quality street guide of Venice which is printable for your convenience.
