A walking guide to 90 sites in Venice where Giacomo Casanova gambled, spied, loved, flattered, dined, played, and seduced. Read about the famed lover and his exploits in his home city. Seven walks lead you through the known and unknown alleys and canals, with descriptions of his adventures, sprinkled liberally with quotes from his memoirs. Historical sidebars, photos, maps, and a chronology complete the package--your ticket to a city and a man that will seduce you.

"WOW! I loved it. Savored every page.
This book brought me back to Venice in my thoughts, my dreams, and all of my obsessive subconscious."
Praise for Seductive Venice:
“The lack of a guidebook to Casanova sites has long been a glaring gap for literary pilgrims to Venice. Kathleen Gonzalez's meticulously researched new book is sure to fill it admirably.”
