Publisher's Summary

Historical and cultural walking tours of Europe's finest cities.
We'll guide you through the narrow, winding streets and along the canals past many of the city's most stunning churches and art galleries and through its picturesque squares. We'll show you the most beautiful monuments - and perhaps the ugliest - as we tell you about their history and show you what to look out for.
We'll also tell you the history of this remarkable city. So that you'll feel you'll know it as well simply seeing it. You'll hear the gruesome legend of how St Mark became patron saint of Venice and find out why we should all be grateful to Attila the Hun.
As you wander past the elegant facade of the world famous La Fenice Opera House, we'll fill you in on the mystery behind the fire that destroyed it in 1996 and discuss the scandal and rumour surrounding it that still divides Italy.
You'll hear why one church has two front entrances and learn about why Venice looks and feels the way it does.
