    Default A submarine in Venice?

    Is this a tourist attraction, or does the city's shipyard accept drydocking jobs?

    Is this a tourist attraction, or does the city's shipyard accept drydocking jobs? Photos taken last week.

    It's the S513 Enrico Dandolo ( Toti class ) .

    The Toti class were submarines built for the Italian Navy in the 1960s. They were the first submarines designed and built in Italy since World War II. These boats were small and designed as SSK-Submarine Submarine Killer . They are comparable to the German Type 205 submarines and the French Aréthuse class submarines .All four ships were built by CRDA Monfalcone .

    S505 Attilio Bagnolini - completed 1968 - decommissioned 1991
    S506 Enrico Toti - completed 1968 - decommissioned 1992 - Museum ship in Milan
    S513 Enrico Dandolo - completed 1968 - decommissioned 1993 - Doge of Venice
    S514 Lazaro Mocenigo - completed 1969 - decommissioned 1993

    The Arsenal of Venice (Arsenale)
    The ancient base of the galley fleet that beat the turks at Lepanto and ruled the Med in the Renaissance.
    When I was there in 99 it was largely off limits to tourists as a military area, but apparently that changed.
    The italians have a strange way of cordoning off the most interesting areas of their country for the military and filling the rest with overly expensive bad restaurants
