Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Veneto / Province of Venice / City of Venice / Venice / Squero di San Trovaso
One of the few dry docks in Venice, Squero di San Trovaso attracts many with its traditional gondola repair service. 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. Put Squero di San Trovaso and other Venice attractions into our Venice online trip builder, and watch your holiday take shape.
