Venice for Pleasure Summary

Venice for Pleasure by J. G. Links

The object of this work is to guide the reader to places he might otherwise miss and, having reached them, to tell him what he might wish to know and then leave him, preferably at a cafe, to admire, to enjoy, and perhaps be disappointed. The illustrations show the visitor, as he confronts a view, what his predecessors of a hundred, two hundred or five hundred years ago saw from the same point. Two sections of colour plates show how the beauty of Venice inspired the 18th century view painters. The main part of the book describes four walks, each of which can be completed in one day, although there are points in each at which one can break off and return another day. Maps, old and new are provided for each walk. The introduction deals with the Piazza S. Marco and its neighbourhood, and appendices are devoted to the public boat services, food and drink and books about Venice. One chapter is entitled "Venice for Children's Pleasure".
