Venice


Rio del remedio:
Rio del Remedio in Venice, Italy
Venice (Italian: Venezia) is the capital city of the Veneto region in northern Italy. As of January 2004, the city had an estimated population of 271,251, with an estimated 1.6 million living in the Padua-Venice metropolitan area.

Venice is built on many small islands in a marshy saltwater lagoon, and is famous for its canals and links to the sea. Additionally for 1,100 years, from 697, until occupied by Austria in 1797 during the Napoleonic Wars, Venice was independent republic, The Most Serene Republic of Venice (Italian: Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia), and was for many centuries one of the leading maritime powers in the Adriatic and eastern Mediterranean.

  • FABER & FABER
Product Description:
Often hailed as one of the best travel books ever written, Venice is neither a guide nor a history book, but a beautifully written immersion in Venetian life and character, set against the background of the city's past. Analysing the particular temperament of Venetians, as well as its waterways, its architecture, its bridges, its tourists, its curiosities, its smells, sounds, lights and colours, there is scarcely a corner of Venice that Jan Morris has not investigated and brought vividly to life. Jan Morris first visited the city of Venice as young James Morris, during World War II. As she writes in the introduction, 'it is Venice seen through a particular pair of eyes at a particular moment - young eyes at that, responsive above all to the stimuli of youth.' Venice is an impassioned work on this magnificent but often maddening city. Jan Morris's collection of travel writing and reportage spans over five decades and includes such titles as Sydney, Coronation Everest, Hong Kong, Spain and Manhattan '45. Since its first publication, Venice has appeared in many editions, won the W.H. Heinemann award and become an international bestseller. "The best book about Venice ever written." (Sunday Times). "No sensible visitor should visit the place without it...Venice stands alone as the essential introduction, and as a work of literature in its own right." (Observer).
