Venice, with her winding canals and magnificent palaces, has enchanted artists, poets, aristocrats, and visitors for centuries. Turn the pages of this beautifully produced collection of photographs, and it's easy to see why. For the past two hundred years, Venice has remained practically unchanged, a testament to the glorious, singular design of La Serenissima. In stunning full-color photographs, Bellissima Venice presents the city from numerous dramatic perspectives: From panoramic rooftops, unhurried gondolas, and columned palace galleries. From the Piazza San Marco to San Giorgio Maggiore, from the Rialto Bridge to the Bridge of Sighs, from the Grand Canal to snaking water alleyways, Michel Setboun's exquisite images distill the essence of Venice's serenely seductive beauty.
