Fodor's Review

The gondola and lagoon boat expert in Venice creates scale models and real gondola forcole in his laboratorio (workshop) nearby. (If the retail shop is closed, a sign posted on the door will explain how to find Signor Penzo.) When he's not busy sawing and sanding, Mr. Penzo writes historical and technical books about gondola building. Here you'll also find gondola model kits, a great gift for the boatbuilder in your life.
