Recommendation by Lemi

Pair your authentic Gondolier attire with a handmade ship model from Venetian boat expert Gilberto Penzo. Buy one assembled by the master himself (though you may have difficulty shipping it home) or just do-it-yourself! The shop offers kits to build your 50-centimeter gondola. You’ll also find vaporetti (waterbus), ceremonial boats, and grand ships. Sadly, these other models don’t come in a kit, but it’s still worth a visit to the shop to see them in their miniature glory. Who knows, bringing them home might just need a little creative McGyver-ing!
