View in full size
A lovely and evocative view of Venice shows the Grand Canal, and its network of smaller canals and bridges, with many of them named. The six sestieri, or divisions of the city are indicated, but the names are not given. An alphanumeric key to the lower right locates the important buildings within the Serene Republic, and below the plan is a lovely view of the approach to Venice from the Adriatic. An uncommon and desirable map.
