Launched on Saturday, April 16th, 2011, at the Scoletta dei Calegheri in Venice, this complete guide lets you explore the fascination of a thousand-year-old city where history, art and civilisation have come together to create something truly unique.
Superb quality colour photographs, maps and plans will help you orientate yourself among the wonders of St. Mark’s Square, from St. Mark’s Basilica to the Doge’s Palace – with a simple but comprehensive suggested tour – and from the Clock Tower to the columns of SS. Mark and Theodore. Come with us along the Grand Canal with its palazzi and important centres of art, like the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, the Pinault Foundation, the Accademia Galleries, Ca’ d’Oro and the Ca’ Pesaro museums.
A guided tour of the Doge’s Palace and Ca’ Rezzonico (the museum of 18th-century Venice), a trip around the Rialto area and another along the Grand Canal.
