Venice stands, as she loves to tell you, on the frontiers of the east and west, half-way between the setting and the rising sun. Goethe calls her "the market-place of the Morning and the Evening lands". Certainly no city on earth gives a more immediate impression of symmetry and unity, or seems more patently born to greatness.
Well informed but badly organised.

Venice is a rich book, full of wonderful language. This audio book does it full justice with a narration that brings out the best in the writing.
