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.

  • The Squero San Trovaso is a place where you are building and repairing boats. Is one of the few that are still alive. In my opinion it's quaint even though you can not enter. You can see the other side of the bridge. Among other things, is in a very nice area of Venice less besieged by tourists and where in my opinion worth a walk.

  • 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.
  • Place to relax and enjoy the Venice scene.
  • Purveyor of the iconic gondolas of Venice, but I guess it's also a full service maintenance shop. Same location for centuries and stays true to its art form.
  • Historical place. Here thy make and fix gondolas
