“If I were not King of France, I would choose to be a citizen of Venice.” –Henri III
Those are powerful words, but then Venice is a powerful draw. I think it safe to conclude there is no other place in the world that is as steeped in history, still operating strictly on water or foot, and is a major tourist attraction, yet in danger of crumbling back into the sea.
I was so intrigued I wrote a novel set in Venice, with forays into Murano and Padua. It’s launch is today!
Read all about how I became inspired by Venetian charm on my publisher’s website. Click here for pictures and a brief insight into my journey!
Congratulations and best of luck … oh yes … Venice can be a setting for many stories in different genres.
Thank you Frank. Can you tell how much I enjoy Italy? 🇮🇹
