Venetian Gardens

Monty Don
Britain's pre-eminent gardener and most revered photographer take readers on a journey across Venice to show how the city's complex history and fragile ecosystem create the perfect conditions for splendid gardens.

For all its history and romanticism, Venice is not well known as a destination for horticultural tourists--but Monty Don is here to change that.

As lush and colorful as a summer garden, this book takes readers on a spectacular tour around Venice - across its bridges and down its canals to explore both well-known and unexpected pockets of garden delights. Starting in the heart of the city and working their way out to the Veneto, Monty and acclaimed photographer Derry Moore celebrate the beauty of these places and tell their unique stories: from a nunnery garden with a history of exotic animals to the serene terraces of the Cini Foundation; charming window boxes to surprising rooftop sanctuaries. Each site is featured in Derry's luscious photographs and Monty's erudite and often deeply personal commentary.

The perfect gift for garden enthusiasts or anyone with a passion for Venice, this magnificent book is a must-have for fans across the world
