This non-profit group is dedicated to preserving the artistic heritage of Venice and has restored over 350 works of art and architecture in the city. Based in both Venice and New York with chapters in Boston and California, the organisation publishes a colourful, 24-page book of hunts and puzzles designed to enhance visits to Venice by encouraging the visitor to focus on various architectural details and art objects that might otherwise go unnoticed. Through Silversea's cooperation with Save Venice, the books are available for sale for 25 Euros on all voyages calling in Venice. Proceeds from the sale go to support the various projects of Save Venice. In addition, when guests purchase one of Silversea's optional pre- or post-cruise land programmes with a one-night minimum stay in Venice, they automatically receive a copy of the Save Venice Hunts & Puzzles book in their hotel room.
