Reviews

London Review of Books, on 6th edition, 2007: 'Milton Grundy's brilliant guide to the sights of Venice, newly published in an expanded sixth edition, is an anthology of some of the best and most illuminating writings about the city and its treasures, arranged around seven walks and three excursions. From Vasari to Alan Bennett, the chorus of voices from past and present provides a supremely cultured accompaniment for strolling around the monuments.' Geographical Magazine: '...[it] provides an opportunity to see the city as it was and is today. Using this guide, you can scour the waterways and be enlightened by well-known writers and art-historians on practically every aspect surrounding this architecturally and culturally rich city...a brilliant anthological guide to Venice, which informs the user of the best walks through [it].' Scotsman: 'Seeking out the gems of Venice's art history in its churches and scuole will require the services of a good guide-book...[This] is a good travelling companion, giving art-historical background and descriptions from a variety of learned visitors down the centuries.' Rivista, Journal of the British-Italian Society: '...[it deserves] the warmest of welcomes. Above all, if there is a member of the British-Italian Society who does not know Milton Grundy's book, he or she should immediately go out and buy a copy.' Eastern Daily Press: 'I've visited countless cities and oceans and deserts without venturing from my bed. Lately I've been lost in Milton Grundy's [book]...Next year I'm going to book a return air ticket and pack [his] guide into my rucksack.'
