A breathtaking journey through the ages, telling the story of one of the world's most famous and beautiful cities. This lavish, landmark series explores how a place with no firm ground, no crops, no indigenous riches and no land army came to snatch success from the jaws of failure time and time again - right up to the present day. Step back in time to early Venice, recreated by the magic of CGI. See wooden houses on stilts replaced by the daring rebuild in stone and brick.

Witness the Sacking of Constantinople and the Venice of Casanova, Napoleon, Byron and Mussolini. The stunning recreations and dramatisations in each episode are enriched by insights from charismatic aristocrat, architect and historian Francesco da Mosto. His family has lived in Venice for over a thousand years and, far from having that sinking feeling, he believes passionately in the future of this miraculous city..

Great DVD Watch it and enjoy.

Fascinating insight from a Venetian who's family have been there for hundreds of years. I'm always surprised when I see the blurb quoted - the "Step back in time to early Venice, recreated by the magic of CGI" must refer to the CGI that in total must last about 6 seconds (in around 4 hours). But if Venice interests you, you'll learn (and see) plenty for the first time.

Thanks op well worth the money, my wife loves Francesco and will be over the moon to see him again. Voted Hot.

If this is your thing it's a great deal. as the other posters have said, fascinating stuff and at this price it's as hot as venice in the summer
