Beautiful pictures, a perfect gift,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Gardens of Venice and the Veneto (Hardcover)
I reecently attended the presentation of this book at the Italian Cultural Institute in London and I was very impressed by the knowledge of the author. I actually come from near Venice so I wasn't sure if this could be suitable for me. I have to say it was the perfect birthday gift for my Mother, who is an expert about Venice!
I particularly enjoyed the section regarding the magnificent garden of the Bauer Palladio Hotel in La Giudecca, the pictures are amazing and the description is wonderful. Overall the book is full of beautiful pictures and gives you an emotional insight about an aspect of Venice that is normally overlooked.
I would surely recommend this book to any Venice lover.
