Venice, wedded to the water, with its gondola traffic, and buildings pink and gold in reflected light from water streets, is a city unique—a city beautiful.

Here, under a Venice-blue sky, are the Rialto Bridge, the Palazzo Grassi, the Piazza San Marco, the Basilica of St. Mark, the Doges' Palace, the Accademia di Belle Arti.  M. Sasek goes gondolier as he captures the delicate shades, gaiety and rare romantic charm that is Venice.  "Abandon wheels, all ye who enter here—This is Venice!"
