In the footsteps of Commissario Brunetti by Donna Leon

In the footsteps of Commissario Brunetti by Donna Leon

star-5
4
Take a city tour to the locations of your favourite television series and enter the Commissario Brunetti’s world, known from Donna Leon's novels and their film adaptations. Along the way you will learn a lot about Venice! The fictional character of the Venetian "Commissario Brunetti" has been a success figure for years: discover personally on site the the wonderful film scene locations from Donna Leon's novels. It is not at all easy to find the “campos” and “palazzos” where Brunetti is often on the way, because most of them are off the city highlights and well know touristic sites. On the contrary, the films are mainly shot in a rather off the beaten path Venice, like the Questura. It is so beautiful when you find the places you fancied on TV or reading the books, from Brunetti's first cases, such as "Acqua Alta", through “Beastly thigs” or “Suffer the little children”, to the youngest, whereby Raffi and Chiara no longer want to live in Venice.
