Cheryl, Maggie, and Durant ImbodenPC Magazine has called this site "the premier visitors' site for Venice, Italy," and we've been featured in other publications ranging from guidebooks to The New York Times. We're also earned hundreds of unsolicited links from major publishers such as CNN, the BBC, and Wikipedia.

We continue to invest countless hours and thousands of euros in creating, maintaining, and publishing useful material for independent travelers--and in serving it via a state-of-the-art Content Delivery Network with more than 200 data centers around the world.

Everything here is free.

You don't need to buy an e-book, an app, or a subscription to read our in-depth information and advice. We don't solicit donations, and we don't sell links or publish "sponsored content." (We support our site with ads plus referral fees from Europe's No. 1 secure reservations site,, which we use for our own business and vacation travel.)
