Venice, Jan Morris
8 Jan Morris Venice
Faber and Faber 241939 Great Britain 1993 Third Revised Edition 0571168973 / 9780571168972 Softcover Good Condition Often hailed as one of the best travel books ever written, Venice is neither a guide nor a history book, but a beautifully written immersion in Venetian life and character, set against the background of the city's past. Analysing the particular temperament of Venetians, as well as its waterways, its architecture, its bridges, its tourists, its curiosities, its smells, sounds, lights and colours, there is scarcely a corner of Venice that Jan Morris has not investigated and brought vividly to life. Jan Morris first visited the city of Venice as young James Morris, during World War II. As she writes in the introduction, 'it is Venice seen through a particular pair of eyes at a particular moment - young eyes at that, responsive above all to the stimuli of youth.' Venice is an impassioned work on this magnificent but often maddening city. Jan Morris's collection of travel writing and reportage spans over five decades and includes such titles as Sydney, Coronation Everest, Hong Kong, Spain and Manhattan '45. Since its first publication, Venice has appeared in many editions, won the W.H. Heinemann award and become an international bestseller. 320 pages. Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1.

12 Michelin Michelin: Venice [Plan, Discover, Explore]
Michelin 231034 France 2007 2067123491 / 9782067123496 Softcover Near Fine Condition Venice is a city where waterfront palaces rub shoulders with modest houses, where housewives sit chatting as they hang their laundry in elegant medieval campos, where sun-bathing is done from your rooftop altana and your bus to work has an outboard engine. Discover an ancient and fiercely independent culture, whose swirling life is echoed in the circling flocks of pigeons of the Piazza San Marco. The Michelin Green Guide is the authority on Venice today and the forces of nature and society that have shaped it. Michelin's local writers have walked, water taxied, visited, slept, shopped and eaten through every tour, sight, hotel, restaurant, boutique, café and venue in this guide. Where they have stepped, you won't put a foot wrong. The Green Guide Venice is meticulously updated and beautifully illustrated with full-color photographs, scores of Michelin maps, and insider coverage of shopping, nightlife, accommodations and restaurants.

See Naples and Die, Penelope Green
13 Penelope Green See Naples and Die
Hachette 239503 Australia 2007 0733622895 / 9780733622892 Softcover Very Good Condition enny Green returned to Italy after a holiday in Australia ready for a challenge. She was looking for a new job and romance, and found work and perhaps love in the toughest Italian city of them all - Napoli. Penny takes on her new home with almost the same open acceptance she had when she first arrived in Rome four years ago. Now, though, she is older, wiser and more experienced when it comes to breaking into a new city. She writes with a feeling of growing love for the Neapolitans, for the beauty of the city's waterfront, and the delights of the old town. But she is realistic - she also steps into the city's underworld and sees for herself how the camorra operate and how they will murder for no reason. The result is a colourful, first-hand account of life in a city that is filled with fear, crime, rubbish, beauty, great food, generous inhabitants and a thrilling sense of living every moment to the fullest. 282 pages.

Hodder & Stoughton 242096 Australia 2005 Reprint 0733619037 / 9780733619038 Softcover Very Good Condition It all sounded so fabulously Audrey Hepburn: "I'm going to live in Rome."Newly single and no longer satisfied with her routine, the time seemed right for PR executive Penelope Green to leave her charmed existence in Australia and pursue her dream of trying her luck in the Eternal City. In April 2002 Penny bought a one-way ticket to Italy, where she knew no one and barely a word of the language, but was determined to create a new life.She picked up casual jobs and started learning Italian. Wrestling with complex sentences and thorny verbs, she followed her friends' advice that hooking up with an Italian stallion would boost her language skills. It definitely helped, but the fact that she happened to successively date two guys who were best mates in the same rock band didn't.Now juggling three jobs - writing for Corriere Della Sera and for a website and working in a wine bar - Penny has never earned so little money and she has never been happier. Rome has become her home.WHEN IN ROME shows what can happen if you are courageous and perhaps crazy enough, to trade in life as you know it to chase a dream on the other side of the world. 308 pages.
