This documentary from Athena Learning and Colonial Pictures finds historian-cum-belletrist Peter Ackroyd leading viewers on a multidimensional tour of Venice, one of Italy's most intriguing and mysterious cities. As Ackroyd tours such landmarks as churches, palazzos, alleyways and much more, he opts to focus on Venetian art (immortalized in tableaux by Guardi and Canaletto), music (such as the hymns of Vivaldi|) and theater (typified by the legendary Venetian carnival). The film also interpolates conversations with preservationists struggling to protect the city's artifacts from time and the sea.
