Everyone has a daydream, and Phillip Jones writes about one harboured by many of us - throwing it all up and moving to Venice. The difference in his case is that he is not a trust fund baby or even a hedge fund retiree, but someone who must make a living and has chosen to live in possibly the most beautiful city in the world, also one of the most expensive. His account of how he and his wife negotiate the intricacies of Venetian life as expats on a modest budget, and in fact earn a living, is fascinating to us who only play at being locals for a week or two a year. Highly recommended.

If, like me, you are a Venetophile who is frustrated by being obliged, through circumstance, to being able to spend no more than a few weeks (or even days) each year in Venice, you will love this modest-looking account of 2 Brits having the courage & stamina to set up a permanent home in La Serenissima. It is exceedingly well written and as informative as it is funny. It is such good value for money that I hope it succeeds in terms of sales - it really ought to do so. Grazie mille all round.

I have been a follower of this particular blog and am delighted to see it make the transformation into book form. Recommended read for Venice lovers! Philip is witty and well informed, and the book reads very well indeed.

A couple give up a secure but predictable life in Britain and risk it all moving to Italy, something we all day dream about maybe but few of us have the courage to do. It's a good read if you're a fan of Venice. Only having been there as a tourist I was surprised by how much is going on in the local community given that relatively few locals remain, forced out by foreigners pushing up the property prices as in London. Our couple are great classical music fans and there seems to be a lot of that in Venice. I can't say it really made me want to live there but it was an interesting read and I admire the couple's embracing of Italian life with all its frustrations and contradictions made up for by la dolce vita . As it's quite a short book I would have preferred less on getting ready for the move and more about Venice.

As my daughter lives just outside Venice and is an ex-pat and we have our own holiday apartment about 25km away thie subject matter of this book was close to my heart. Over the past 17 years we have come to know and love Venice with all it's foibles and consider it to be the most magical place on earth. Philip's book shows his love of the magical city too and gave us interesting glimpses from a very British perspective - well done will recommend to friends.

A delightful and and in places a very funny account of a couple who decide to live in Another Place. Yet this is not yet just another run-of-the-mill Expat-abroad stories but an honest story of the toll that deciding to step out of one's comfort zones and try to earn a living in a country not one's own can take. It's a darn good read for anyone interested in Venice, with a lot of local colour and description of this amazing place. For anyone who, like us, has also dared to buy a one-way-only ticket across the channel, it has to be compulsory reading! You will, also like us, find yourselves almost drowning in the waves of empathy as you read of their endless attempts to get That Important Document... Buy, read, and enjoy!

The opening section on preparing to go was interesting. After that it seemed to be more about the different concerts attended than the practicalities of basic day to day living which would have been more interesting. The paperback seemed to be a short step away from the blog with limited re-writing to make it more appropriate for a different format. Nevertheless it was an ok read.

Great time to read this book as I am off to Venice in May. Some good suggestions for sight seeing. Well written, and though some of the classical music references were too obscure for me, it still kept me reading.
