Inhalt

Jan Morris’s writing has always exuded infectious enthusiasm for her subjects, and never more so than when she writes about La Serenissima. In the late middle ages, the small city state of Venice gained unprecedented wealth and power through her maritime connections and as a by-product of the sack of Constantinople. Morris takes us on a journey through the modern-day places that were once part of Venice’s sphere of influence, whether tiny Greek islands or glittering modern cities, to explore its lingering legacy. This is an affectionate account, part travelogue, part social and political history, brought to life with her trademark wry wit and remarkable eye for detail.
