Thanks Smack, even if that "Pualo" sounds odd

Guys look at this:

I know, it is not a sailboat...but it is a nice boat and I want to share something that take me by surprise....not Venice, everybody knows it is beautiful, but the Museum, not any museum but the Naval History Museum.

It costs almost nothing to visit, it is almost empty...and it is wonderful.

Take my word, if you go to Venice, and everybody should go sooner or later, don't forget the Naval museum and if you love boats you will not regret it: From the Bucintoro to the huge rings the Dodges used to throw every year to the sea to celebrate the city marriage with the sea to incredible drawings of warships and beautiful models you have for several hours of amazement.

Yes, it would be strange if a city married with the sea for so many years had not a great boat museum but the fact is that I had already been in Venice and never heard about it.

So now you know
