The second map shows the whole of the Veneto region, stretching all the way from Lake Garda in the west through to Venice in the east.
Actually, despite having put this page together, the truth is that maps in Venice are hardly needed. There is no better city for getting lost in and making your own discoveries of "unexplored" canals and alleys. Places like those we share in our guide to A Secret Venice.
Sometimes, relying on your phone for directions in Venice can end up with you getting lost anyway. Most phone maps get a little confused once you start exploring the narrow alleyways of Venice. Yes, they'll get you to the main sights like the Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's Square and even to areas like the Venice Ghetto, but once you arrive in these areas, you are best off switching out of the map section of your phone. Instead, open the camera, explore, and take photos without having to worry about where you are.
If you end up hopelessly lost in the maze that is Venice, then use the phone maps of Venice to help you get back to one of the main sights and get your bearings. You'll find you quickly get used to getting around on your own, and you are never far from somewhere like St. Mark's, the Rialto Bridge, or another major landmark if you do get lost.
The Rialto Bridge and St. Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco) are all well signposted throughout Venice, so if you are not sure where you are, simply follow the signposts to one of the main sights.
