Five notable books about Venice

One title on the Barnes & Noble Review's list of five books on Venice:
The World of Venice
by Jan Morris

Sometimes it seems as though no writer has visited Venice without producing a volume in honor of the trip. Of the hundreds of books the city has inspired, few have stood the test of time as well as Jan Morris's vivid portrait of the city, written with a traveler's alertness and a historian's erudition and attention.
Read about another book on the list.
