Create an itinerary including 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.

  • At the corner of the square, there is the workshop where they produce and repair gondolas in traditional style. We learned that gondolas are in banana shape and their left side is longer.

  • Top experience in Venice. The people were the best. 10/10 would recommend.
  • This is one off the oldest shipyards in venice where they still make gondellas. I really recommend this place, be sure to visit. Acros this place there is a really fun place where you can get a little snack and some local drinks while you can watch the shipyard or continue your journey.
