Favorite thing: No not the football team but Venice's shipyard of old which once employed 16,000 people (called "Arsenalotti") to produce the fleets that sailed the Med. It was justifiably proud of its assembly line production which could construct a galley within hours.
The stone lions guarding the entrance have been 'acquired' from various Greek Islands by Venetian commanders.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
