Customer Review

on August 22, 2011
There is good reason that this book has remained in print and, after fifty years, is still one of the classic texts on Venice. Although some of the details may now be out of date, the atmosphere of Venice is vividly evoked. Morris writes with elegance and passion about a city with which s/he is intimately acquainted and the accumulation of personal observation, anecdote and history is compelling. Morris's writing has great originality, humour and immediacy. This book will live on in my memory and I will take it the next time I go to Venice so that I can search for the sights that Morris describes.
