VeniceDownloadable Audiobook - 2010
Venice stands, as she loves to tell you, on the frontiers of the east and west, half-way between the setting and the rising sun. Goethe calls her 'the market-place of the Morning and the Evening lands'. Certainly no city on earth gives a more immediate impression of symmetry and unity, or seems more patently born to greatness. So Jan Morris remarks, with graceful literary distinction, on the qualities that have made Venice a unique place among the world's great destinations. She has known it intimately for over six decades. In 2010, the 50th anniversary of the first publication of Venice is celebrated one of the finest travel books on the world's most famous tourist destination! Written as James Morris, this book has been slightly updated without disturbing its period flavour, and is being celebrated by Faber, the book publisher.
