It is the most dazzling avenue in Europe-and can only be traveled by boat. Here is everything you want to know about the Grand Canal of Venice; the central reference point of a magnificent city. All of Venice's history is here, and no number of trips along the Canal's sinuous course diminishes its fascination.

This beautiful book is the first ever devoted exclusively to the great thoroughfare. Panoramic views record every building on both banks, and a fascinating text describes the architecture and history of each. Readers will see everything from the most famous palaces to the least known and most private houses. And thanks to the author's expert introduction, they will get a fresh interpretation of the Canal's meaning to both Venetians and visitors.

For all those who have visited-or intend to visit-Venice, The Grand Canal will be a cherished possession.
