Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Squero di San Trovaso

Watch the gondolas drift by while enjoying a snack from one of the small tapas restaurants that line the square. You may even get a chance to see a traditional wooden gondola being built by hand. The boatyard offers travelers a trip on a bragozzo, a traditional fishing boat from the 18th or 19th century, down the lagoon of Venice. If you are traveling with a group of 25 or more, tours can be booked to visit inside the boatyard, where you'll witness exquisite craftsmanship.

The daughter of the craftsman, very kind and helpful, explained to us all the steps that are done to build a gondola, the types of tree that are used and that must be left in the sun for several years. Unfortunately, it is a job that is disappearing, because there are only 2 left to hold this activity, because, the young people of today no longer want to learn this craft. After he explained everything about the gondola, he accompanied us to their museum, to show us a movie where the craftsman explains and explains all the steps to give life to the gondola. it was a great experience and I recommend it to anyone who wants to savor a bit of history.

Although this is a super nice corner, not too many touris were there. This makes it very pleasant to soak up and enjoy Venetian flair in peace.
Clasic Gondola craftsmen. Wonderful sight
Worth to visit if you want to see how the boats are build you have to visit this.
