From the Inside Flap
And thus the journey begins - Barry and Debbie Frangipane, a middle-class couple tired of the rat race leaves it all for the lure of Venice. But can they make it in a foreign land? Read about the hilarious twists and turns their lives take during their year in the city of water, as they show us a Venice we never knew existed. The Venice Experiment is about fulfilling dreams on a journey that any of us could make - but would we? --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The reason why I gave this book 3 stars and not two, is because I have been to Venice and I enjoyed revisiting the places there that the author mentioned during his year-long stay. I do not recommend this book for armchair travelers. Skip this one and read something by Peter Mayle instead.
