Venice: Flying over "LA SERENISSIMA" and the Venetian Countryside
Alberto BertolazziISBN: 8854402214; 978-88-544-0221-8;
This volume takes readers on an aerial adventure above this ever-fascinating city and its surrounding region. A wide variety of panoramas depict the sights that are unique to Venice: the Lagoon with its islands of Burano, Torcello, and Murano; the network of canals branching out from the Grand Canal; the palaces, homes, and world-famous monuments that are all the more compelling when viewed from above. Chapters devoted to the Veneto region take readers to the neighboring cities of Vicenza, Padua, and Treviso as well as more obscure areas where photographs showcase lovely villages and castles, such as Citadel, Asolo, Bassano, and Chioggia. For anyone who wants to experience the magic of Venice and the Veneto, this volume is a souvenir to be cherished.
