Lillis Photography shows you Northern Italy as it combines the sophisticated atmosphere of Western Europe with the “dolce vita” of Mediterranean life. In this book, see everyday images of Venice with canals bursting with gondolas, the masses of tourists making sure the pigeons don't starve, ancient buildings crumbling before our eyes. Go to Vicenza to see the old city and the surrounding countryside and hills, particularly famous for the many works and villas by Palladio. Take a drive along the edges of Lake Garda to experience all the small towns that ring this gorgeous area. The north of the lake seems to be beckoning visitors to stay and enjoy a quiet, peaceful holiday. Travel to Padua on market day, a great place situated in the north of Italy and west of Venice, and an important economic center. Don't forget Verona, home to Romeo and Juliette, her famous balcony, cosy wine bars, and summer opera in the ancient Roman arena.
