What People are Saying About This

Piero Boitani

This is an excellent book. The history of the city is recounted as if it were a story, which makes the whole work eminently readable. The history of Venice is as meandering as its canals, and to have achieved an overall straightforward path through it is no small feat. McGregor's book is a perfect introduction to Venice. Italians themselves would read it with profit. --(Piero Boitani, Professor of Comparative Literature at University of Rome La Sapienza)
