Martin Garrett explores the extraordinary history, art and architecture of Venice and the islands of the lagoon. Looking at the legacy of the city's Jewish, Greek, Slav and Armenian minorities, he recalls the exploits of such legendary figures as Casanova and Byron. He also assesses the successful struggle to preserve the city in the face of flood and corruption, and its important modern role as host of the Biennale and film festival.MARTIN GARRETT is the author of literary companions to Italy and Greece, and has written or edited a number of works on Renaissance and nineteenth-century writers, including Sidney, Byron and the Brownings

The Piazza San Marco, one of the most famous, instantly recognizable townscapes in the West, has been described as a stage set, Europe's drawing room, a painter's canvas. This book traces its changing shape and function, from its beginnings in the ninth century to its present day ubiquity in the Venetian, European, as well as global imagination.

"Venice and her attractions- San Marco, the Accademia, the Doges' Palace- have drawn such hordes of observers and commentators over the years that this most beautiful of cities has come to seem stale. Fortunately, Hugh Honour always has something fresh and incisive to say. He knows his subject exceptionally well, as a result this guide, with its winning blend of evocative detail and precise information, spurs the reader to investigate Venice's many elusive wonders. On first publication, Hugh Honour's 'Companion Guide to Venice' rapidly established itself as the one indispensable guide to the city and her people. With this new edition, he provides a thoroughly updated version of his classic book." --Back cover description
