“A caravel was a light, fast ship in the days of sail. In its Italian version, La Caravella is the dining room of the Hotel Saturnia in Venice. And a handsome room it is, even for this landlubber, with its ship’s wheel, ropes, hooks, lamps, chains and abundance of dark wood. It is also an excellent restaurant.”

So strange - the finely-detailed ship and the beaten old window frame. What a great find.
