World Showcase - Italy

The Italy pavilion incorporates the architecture of Venice the the elaborate decorations of Doge's Palace with elegant decoration, and a smaller version of the bell tower of St. Mark's Square. Standing atop one of the large columns at the entrance is a sculpture of the Lion of St. Mark, the other of St. Theodore, an important figure from Venice.

Some forced perspective that draws your eyes toward the large open area in the back of the pavilion, creating an illusion that the columns are larger than they are. You can also get your pasta fix at L'Originale Alfredo di Roma Ristorante, a full-service restaurant that specializes in Fettucini Alfredo. It'll feel to some that Italy is a bit of a letdown, with little to see or do other than the recreated architecture.
