Paradise of Cities

Paradise of Cities - Venice in the 19th century

A study of the grand era of noble tourism as the great and the good came to Venice for inspiration and re-invigorated its declining fortunes.
Napoleon, Byron, Ruskin, Wagner, Browning and Henry James could not have been more different, but each saw in the city what they could use.
