Venice has 'captured' the heart, mind and imagination of so many writers, poets, artists and historians. Venice is one of my favourite subjects in art, literature and history, and I am always eager to learn more and look more at this unique and special place. This Venice blog is my way of collecting the wealth of images, poems, prose and impressions of Venice.

Never to leave sweet Venice...

If I had been an unconnected man,
I from this moment, should have formed some plan 
Never to leave sweet Venice...

Percy Byshhe Shelley
