Boat Ramp & Dock · Venice, Italy


This is a city within a city. The quickest way to see it all is to take the motorboat to the stop outside the Naval History Museum and head towards Fondamente Nuove. At present, there is little to see: partly because the large docks are walled off and partly because as they have been partially abandoned, it will appear to an-untrained eye as though there is nothing to see. The area used to be very technologically advanced - it was here that the whole of the Mediterranean was instructed in modern methods of shipbuilding. Note the marble lions that guard the entrance: they were brought here from Pyrius in 1687.
