EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

LEGO Architecture Venice is a 212-piece set depicting the city's most famed structures such as St. Mark's Square, The Rialto Bridge, The Winged Lion of St. Mark, The Bridge of Sighs, and more. This set, for ages 12 and up, comes with a booklet in both English and Italian explaining Venice's famed architecture and history. Once completed, this makes a beautiful display piece that measures five-inches high x nine-inches wide x one-inch deep. 

Is It Fun?
This is a beautiful set that introduces kids, ages 12 and up, to the treasure that is Venice. This is ideal if your family has/will make a trip to Italy or if your family is making an armchair trip to La Serenissima. The booklet, in both English and Italian, is packed with facts about the city, its history and architecture. This makes a nice family project and it could spark a lot of conversation.
Who It’s For
Designed for ages 12 and up, this makes a beautiful display piece in a kid's room or in adult's home or office. This is for those who love Venice, history, travel, and/or architecture. This could also be used in a classroom setting or as part of a school project. Younger children should be able to do this with some help from an adult, making this a potentially great family activity.
What To Be Aware Of
This is part of LEGO's Architecture line, which also includes The White House, Rome's Trevi Fountain, London's Big Ben, the city of Berlin, and much more. The buildings in this set are accurately depicted but LEGO did take some poetic license and set this up as skyline for the sake of the display. 


These sets are meant for an older child and/or adult. These are display pieces and not ideal for play. But these sets could pique a younger child's interest in travel, history, architecture, and much more if an adult assists the child with the build. 


This took our TTPM builder about 30 minutes to build.
