  • Turns out went to different library in Venice. Not realizing this was from Indiana Jones but a friend made me walk into it .ten Outta ten would recommend love that movie
  • I am fascinated by Leonardo's work so I am enjoyed the exhibition. But dont expect to find Indiana Jones' X sign :)
  • A great gathering place in dorsoduro. Featured in the classic David Lean Film, "Summertime" starring Katharine Hepburn. It is here that Hepburn buys the infamous "red goblet" from Rossano Brazil and later falls into the nearby Canal while using her 8mm movie camera. A great place to sit and have lunch and watch the Venetian world go by.
  • A good gathering place and also the church from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where "X" marked the spot.
  • Young girl at the ticket office for the da vinci show in the church definitely has an attitude problem! She was rude to every single customer. In between rude replies she was busy on her iphone. The show itself was ok-ish but very basic... Done in 5 minutes.. hardly worth your time or money. Da vinci deserves better!
