The Venetian Safari

Four walks to discover the stone animals of Venice and the neighbourhoods they live in

Venice, a city of animals!

Look up, down, and all around to discover the incredible variety of life-like creatures sculpted in stone throughout this intriguing city. Anna, your expert guide, has created a delightfully entertaining way to bring Venice to life for kids and grown-ups alike.

Take a guided treasure hunt through neighbourhoods both famous and hidden. This curated ‘safari’ offers an introduction to Venice that’s as fun for children as it is fascinating for adults.

From author ANNA BELLANI:

This is a book for curious children who would love to discover the city of Venice from all angles: looking up, down and all around. I’ve created four ‘safari’ walks through the Venetian sestieri (neighbourhoods). The maps and walks will lead you through some very famous places and to secret hidden corners you would otherwise never see.

This beautiful book is filled with maps and detailed directions, photos of the fascinating animals you’ll search for, and a glossary for some of the Italian and Venetian words, just for fun! There are even pages in the back reserved to draw all fascinating animals you’ll discover.

It’s beautiful. Sincere, cheerful, well done, well documented. I loved reading it and following the itineraries in my mind. A beautiful gift for your friends big and small.

We just finished the Castello walk! We so enjoyed it, my daugher, and me as well!
