Peter Ackroyd's sensual and surprising account embraces facts and romance, conjuring up the atmosphere of the canals, bridges, and sunlit squares, the churches and markets, the festivals and flowers. He leads us through the history fo the city, from the first refugees arriving in the mists of the lagoon in the fourth century to the rise of the great mercantile state and trading empire, the wars against Napoleon, and the tourist invasions of today. Everything is here - the merchants on the Rialto and the Jews in the ghetto, the carnival masks and the sad leper colonies, the glassblowers and artists and the ever-present undertone of Venice's shadowy corners and dead ends.
