Each year, millions of visitors travel to Venice to admire the architectural marvels of this famed city. In this brief yet comprehensive volume, distinguished architect and critic Richard Goy offers a convenient and accessible guide to the city's piazzas, palazzos, basilicas, and other architectural points of interest, as well as pertinent historical details regarding Venice's unique urban environment. Clearly laid out and fully illustrated in color, this handbook is designed around a series of expertly planned walking tours that encompass not only the city's most admired architectural sites but also its lesser-known gems. Specially made maps accompany each walking tour and provide additional references and insights alongside introductory chapters on the city's architectural history, urban design, and building materials and techniques. Featuring a complete bibliography, glossary of key terms, and other useful reference materials, Goy's guide will appeal both to travelers who desire greater architectural context and analysis than a traditional guide may provide and to return visitors looking to rediscover Venice's most enchanting sites.
