Francesco's Mediterranean Voyage, Hardback Book

Francesco's Mediterranean Voyage Hardback



Venetian architect and historian Francesco da Mosto sets out from Venice to cross the Mediterranean - following in the wake of his ancestor, the explorer Alvise da Mosto - to discover the cities and islands where Western civilization was born.

Sailing in a late nineteenth-century yawl, his journey starts in Venice and finishes in Istanbul.

Along the way he takes in spectacular ruins, like the Acropolis in Athens and the Lycian Tombs in Turkey; sacred sites like the monasteries of Mount Athos and the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul; and beautiful Dubrovnik (destroyed and rebuilt in the last decade).

Ancient history and bygone legends intertwine as Francesco visits these wonderful ancient sites, bringing the past vividly to life, and taking readers on a thrilling cultural odyssey.

Beautifully illustrated throughout, this book will be a must for fans of Francesco everywhere.
