I was travelling to Venice and pulled a 'walk' out of this book. I have read and loved the Commissario Brunetti series, and it was interesting to see on a map where it was that he went in the stories, then to see it in real life! If you love the Donna Leon series, this book will show you the locations of what she is describing. A fun read whether you are a real traveler or an armchair traveler!
