640 pages may seem like a long read, which it is, but considering the history of Venice, I would say it's about right.

If you're going to spend the money & take the time to go there, I would read this book. I don't think I would have lasted the whole read, but Norwich devided it up into small chapters. I was in Venice when I was 16 yrs. old. If I only knew.
