The Liquid Continent: A Mediterranean Trilogy: Volume II: Venice.

Woodsworth, Nicholas.

Picture of The Liquid Continent: A Mediterranean Trilogy: Volume II: Venice.
Here he abandons museums and tourist hordes to engage in the city's on-going love affair with the sea. Although Venice is no longer a seat of power, with displays of unimaginable wealth, and its great cosmopolitan era over, it is still beautiful and romantic. Venice is still a magnificent yet intimate city - and this is rarely glimpsed by outsiders.

Description

Of all the great powers of the Mediterranean past, Venice was the most commercially ambitious. Her great wealth and sophisticated culture were products of a commercial empire that stretched from the Adriatic to the ports of the Levant, and her long history is studded with sea dramas of war, crusade and intrigue.
