Lose Yourself Without Getting Lost.
This handy application presents you several self-guided walks featuring the best of the city, from world famous attractions to hidden gems. There simply is no better way to see a city on foot, at your own pace and at a cost that is only a fraction of what you would normally pay for a guided tour.
This app comes with a detailed and fully functional city map to help you explore the city and locate the sights of interest. City map functions included in this app are: street name and business (restaurants, cafes, etc.), search, location bookmarking, `Findme` (iPhone and iPad 3/4G model), movement tracking (iPhone and iPad 3/4G model), and more. You can track your steps, take photos along the way, and then share your tracks and photos with friends.

No Data Plan or Internet is Needed, and No Roaming either. All the data used in this app is built into the software, so there is no need for internet access or cellular data plan. No need to pay costly roaming charges when traveling to foreign cities. The app works with your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad.
All the navigation features related to the city walks are disabled in this Lite version, which means that you can view the walk details (sight descriptions and photos), but NO navigation assistance is provided to guide you from one sight to the next. Download the Lite version if you want to use the city map or learn about the city walks. However, if you want to join the walks, it is highly recommended that you download a Full Version of this app. The Full Version includes detailed walk route maps to guide you from one sight to the next.

Ratings and Reviews
They don’t tell you content is pretty much nonexistent until after going through 47 steps and you end up forced to pay the $4.99 fee for a single walk – and then, though you can then get the step-by-step directions (in a very bad interface that covers your location), the information they provide is so minimal that even a terrible guidebook would be better. They give as much information on random shops as they do on points of interest.
This isn't an app. It is an ad for the "pay for it" version that supposedly does something
Useless. It is a teaser for their other version. It is developers like this that give app developers a bad name.
Worth slightly less than its price
No real map to speak of. Entries pulled directly from Wikipedia. Have these guys been to Venice? Unlikely. Save yourself the trouble of thinking this might be somewhat useful at all.
