Synopsis

This book presents a concise and readable overview of the history of Venice from the fifth century AD to the present day. The main theme is the unique place that Venice has occupied in the history of Europe in general and in Italy in particular. While Venice has been politically part of united Italy since 1866, its development tied it as much to the Eastern Mediterranean and the Levant as to the Italian peninsula. It is this rich cultural mix which has made Venice such a fascinating, magical place. There is a Chronology of Major Events, and special reference features on the islands in the lagoon, the history of the gondola, Venice’s churches, museums and art galleries. <I>A Traveller’s History of Venice</I> will help every visitor to enjoy the riches and quirks of this unique city.
