Francesco's Venice brings us the epic story of Venice, seen through the eyes of Francesco da Mosto, a descendent of one of the oldest and most distinguished Venetian families, whose ancestral history is inextricably intertwined with 'La Serenissima'.

Francesco gives us a fascinating insight into one of the most beautiful cities in the world: the places, events and people that have sculpted Venice through the ages. He explores hidden gardens, ascends secret staircases and, with the aid of expertly executed dramatic reconstructions, travels back in time to see the Doge's Palace, St Mark's Square and the winged lion rise out of the mud. He revisits the golden age of Titian, Veronese and Tintoretto; the 'Canalettos, casinos and the clap' of the eighteenth-century Grand Tour, and explains how Venice's magnificent art and architecture fuelled the building style of Europe before facing the city's largest threat: the sea.

Worth it...just for the photgraphy alone. Fascinating if into art history, I am bias becuase I have just come back. And he is gorgeous to listen to.

TV doesn't get any better than this. Snap it up.

I'm afraid that says rather more about you than it does about the DVD set.

Watched this last night on BBC4

If you like history this is a good dvd to add to your collection.

A journey through the ages. Attila the Hun attacked the town of Aquileia and the inhabitants fled the city. Some of them took refuge in the islands and marshes of the Adriatic Sea. Here they founded Venice.

I would have thought so too but caught this by accident on bbc4 last night,suprisingly good,very interesting and stunningly beautiful to watch.

Also saw this guy on Doctor Who Confidential last night.

This is a good series, under £6 just about everywhere

Brilliant series. Great photography and da Mosto is a properly charismatic, enthusiastic and knowledgable guide.

Excellent! Really enjoyed an episode on BBC Four last night, Informative and visually stunning. Ordered it and added h&r. Thanks for posting
