Built by Fincantieri for the Italian Navy in 1976 and decommissioned in 2002, the Nazario Sauro S518 is today the only Italian submarine that can be visited at sea. The voices of crew and the sounds of the engines, sonar, radar and even the torpedo launchers accompany this exciting experience. In addition to the visit in the water, an area has been set up inside the Museum which, through numerous multimedia activities, gives the visitor the opportunity to learn how to move in the small spaces of the vessel and to pilot a submarine, finally receiving a submariner’s diploma.
