Summary

A city of romance and riches defined by its past, Venice is an unbelievable city that floats in a world of its own. This myth-making maritime former republic was where east met west, and power and affluence fuelled unsurpassed creativity. Only great ingenuity can stop its transcendent testimonies to imagination crumbling into the sea. Beyond the marshlands of the lagoon lies the prosperous region of the Veneto, boasting the villa-lined Brenta canal, fortified towns, undulating vineyards and the snow-capped peaks of the Dolomites. It has truly great cities too: Padova, with its awe-inspiring frescos and illustrious university; the architectural splendour of Vincenza, a showcase for Palladillo's genius; and Roman-built Verona, a city infused by the legacies of dynastic rule and love. This title includes suggestions from local people on where to go and what to do. It offers a month-by-month guide to pros and cons of visiting at certain times of year. It presents a series of great driving routes and city walks. It includes the author's personal recommendations of a place or an activity. It discusses where to picnic and the best places to buy your goodies.
