Published by Thames & Hudson, The Venice Book is for the art tripper – 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 layer and secrets of Venice. Ullin will let you know where to find mouth-watering eateries to enjoy the true taste of the region, where to find the artisanal treasures to take home as a keeper of Venetian memories and also her favourite hotels to rest your head after a weary day of eating, wandering and museum-hopping.

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. Her generous and insightful band of artists, actors, travel editors, designers, fashionistas, philanthropists, art advisors curators, museum and gallery directors have also opened their precious black books and memory banks to impart their nuanced perspectives as well as divulge their secret spots, hidey holes, favourite art experiences, must-go restaurants, best bars, shopping hot spots and hotel heavens. The book also includes some tips from our founder, Dana Tomić Hughes.
