Squero di San Trovaso, Venice

4.6
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.

  • I was advised to visit the Squero of San Trovaso...... Said so he knows nothing..... But when you stand in front of this particular corner of Venice, where it seems that time has stopped, where the ancient art of building and repairing gondolas is the only reason for life, then you realize that you have before a small part of the soul of Venice...

  • Great to see the gondolas being built. The whole area looks like going back in time.
  • Amazing factory still hand building gondolas. Over one hundred types of wood and six months are required to complete just one of these beauties. Worth checking out if a tour is offered.
