Squero di San Trovaso

Local nameSquero San Trovaso
LocationDorsoduro, Venice, Italy

Do you know how many kinds of wood a gondola is made out of? If not, this is the place to find out. Squero San Trovaso is a shipyard, which has been making and fixing gondolas, pupparinis, sandolis and other traditional Venetian kinds of ships since the 17th century.

You can still buy a gondola here today and if you are interested, go for a tour and listen to how exactly these ships are built. The masters of the craft working here still follow the traditional methods of shipbuilding, using ropes and handiwork in a months-long tedious process, just as they did centuries ago.

Even if you cannot visit the Squero itself, you can take a look at the building from the opposite bank. This is the best place to take pictures from.
