    Gerd Wolfgang Sievers(Author)
The Serenissima, the fair Lady, is increasingly growing to be the Disney World of the super-rich - but isn't that what she always was? A search for the traces in the heart of this enchanted 'city of water', far from the madding crowd, tracking down what makes the Serenissima what she is: the cheerful, quirky, lovable, mystical; the artistic, the epicurean, the mercantile, the inexplicable and inscrutable Venice that bewitches and heartlessly repels its visitors when they start getting on the city's nerves.

111 Places in Venice That You Shouldn't Miss shows you the quirks and secrets of Venice: In which church an elephant once was held captive? Where would you find a luxury hotel inside a madhouse? Who lost his palazzo at a game of cards?

At the tender age of five, Gerd Wolfgang Sievers already preferred the stove to the soccer field. While finishing high school in Germany, he was also learning gourmet cooking from various well-known chefs. He was then drawn to Vienna, and after studying journalism, he earned his official credentials as a cook. For more than fifteen years, Gerd Wolfgang Sievers has been writing culinary and gastrosophic columns in various trade periodicals and newspapers. Up to now, he has published twentythree books in the German-speaking area, such as the Snail Cookbook, or Austria, Land of Pleasure. He is also producing and creating films for the series Austria, Land of Pleasure, for Bavarian Radio Alpha. He works in Vienna, while living in Burgenland and in Friuli, Italy.

    Bought this to find the off track quirky things that don't involve the thousands of other tourists in Venice. It's fine but not so full of original things to see and do. When I looked back through other guides it appears that this one has just narrowed the field of items that others have already previously listed. Not really worth the price.
