Venice- a sketchbook Guide


| /

Venice has been a deep source of inspiration for Matthew Rice for years. Here he provides a wealth of information about the 'stones' of Venice, including an illustrated guide to the main building styles of the city - Byzantine, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Modern - and exemplars of its balconies, bridges and campaniles. Further sections explore the city's six residential quarters, as well as its history, paintings, festivals, wildlife and - not least - its cicchetti and aperitivi. Promises to delight all visitors to Venice, armchair or actual.
