Going to Venice? Your luxe in

The concertina-shaped Luxe city-guides provide a nicely light and airy alternative to the usual heavyweight tomes we tend to drag around on city breaks, but don't fret that their pocket-sized convenience leaves them coming up short in the information stakes. In fact, with space a premium, everything here has to earn its place and the result is a focused and witty insider's guide - all you need when you're only away for a few days. The latest edition to their 32 city range is Venice, out this September, with plenty of suggestions from resident contributors on how to escape the usual hangouts. £4.99,  www.luxecityguides.com
