Venice

With the help of the latest 3D scanning technology, Alexander Armstrong and Dr Michael Scott explore the watery wonderland of Venice. They uncover how a city built in a swamp became one of the most powerful in Medieval Europe. They dive into its canals to experience how the city, constructed on mud, remains standing to this day. They then uncover how it became such a military and trading powerhouse and how its beauty once masked a ruthless secret state and a world of excess and vice - home to one of the greatest lovers and polymaths of all time, Casanova.
