If you're planning a first trip or you're already one of Venice's many lovers, then this collection will make a great companion. (SUNDAY TIMES)

Whether you're already having a life-long affair with Venice or you've always longed to go, this book is a must. Packed with quotes, essays and reflections on this legendary city of art and water, spanning the 15th to the 20th centuries, this definitive (SAINSBURY'S MAGAZINE)

As long as it stands above the waters of its lagoon, Venice's charms will continue to seduce its visitors. I can't easily think of another book that might so beguilingly lead the newly succumbed to prolong their engagement with this most promiscuous of lovers. (INDEPENDENT)
