Wonderful! The Kings and their courtesans spent very nice hours along the Po river, on this beautiful boat. It was bought in Venice and there are no others like this one!

The greatness of Doge of Venice. I cannot imagine the WOW effect it had on all the spectators seeing it on the waters. Too bad that only the Bucintoro is visible. The room contains 5 chariots but we cannot see them due to restorations. They will finish by June 2016.
