My fellow Casanova lover (hmm, sounds like a little racier than I mean) Kathleen Ann Gonzalez has done exciting on-the-ground and along the water research in Venice to follow in Casanova’s footsteps.
Her guidebook, Seductive Venice: In Casanova’s Footsteps is for lovers, scholars, and adventurers. Whether you choose to do one walking tour or all seven, you are sure to have a memorable experience. Drink a Bellini at a cafe where Casanova spied on his friends. Sneak down back alleys to the house where Casanova lost his virginity to two sisters. Kneel in the church where Casanova passed out while giving a sermon (and where his admiring parishioners offered him love letters!) Of course, the walks include Casanova’s best-known haunts as well: the ridotto where he gambled away fortunes and the prison where he schemed for a year before his daring escape. Create a little of your own history while being seduced by the lover and his city.
