As you enter the Italy pavilion, you’ll pass underneath a detailed recreation of the Venetian campanile of St. Mark’s. In the center of the pavilion is the Plaza del Teatro, where live street theater in the style of the commedia dell’artre is performed. It’s the perfect place for relaxing, but be sure to explore the rest of the pavilion to see classic Italian sculptures and fountains.
Before you leave, look out on the lagoon to see several authentic gondolas moored to the bank. They add a classic touch to this beatiful pavilion, but unfortunately, you can’t ride them!
