In the footsteps of Brunetti

I am a fan of the novels by Donna Leon. They are set in Venezia and revolve around Commisario Brunetti of the Questura [police force] and it was fun noticing little things that get mentioned in the books. Here is a small sampling of things that Brunetti might notice and comment on.
The Florian café.
St Marco- often mentioned and the tourist crush.
Architectural details and his beloved Grand Canal.
The waters and pollution of the Lagoona.

  1. Donna Leon - a great author. We loved Venice as well. So much character and so alive.
