Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Follow Commissario Guido Brunetti, star of Donna Leons internationally best-selling mystery series, on over a dozen walks that highlight Venices churches, markets, bars, cafes, and palazzos

In Brunettis Venice, tourists and armchair travelers follow in the footsteps of Brunetti as he traverses the city he knows and loves. With his acute eye for change in his native city, his fascination with the past, his ear for language and his passion for food and drink, and his familiarity with the dark realities of crime and corruption, Brunetti is the perfect companion for any walk across La Serenissima.

Over a dozen walks, encompassing all six regions of Venice as well as the lagoon, lead readers down calli, over canali, and through campi. Important locations from the best-selling novels are highlighted and major themes and characters are explored, all accompanied by poignant excerpts from the novels. This is a must-have companion book for any lover of Donna Leons wonderful mysteries.
