What people say

"Squero di San Trovaso specializes in the construction and repair of traditional Venetian boats, such as gondolas, sandolos, and mascarete. The skilled artisans at the boatyard use traditional techniques and materials to create these beautiful and functional vessels. Visitors can watch the craftsmen at work, and even take a gondola ride from the boatyard to experience the beauty of Venice from the water.

Squero di San Trovaso is an important part of Venice’s cultural heritage and is a must-visit destination for anyone interested in the history and traditions of Venetian boat-making. The best Spritz of Venice can be found just behind the best spot for watching how craftsmen work – Osteria Al Squero. Take the Spritz and watch the magic happen. After The Spritz, walk along the Venetian Lagoon where all the Ferrys and Ships go by – Walk on Fondamenta Zattere Ai Gesuati through Fondamenta Zattere Allo Spirito Santo and Fondamenta Zattere Ai Saloni to the very end of the Fondamenta Salute (Trabaccolo “Il Nuovo Trionfo”), then continue to Gondola-Traghetto – Dogana and take a 2 euro GONDOLA ride over Grand Canal to get back to the San Marco district."
"This is where gondolas are made! You can get a glimpse of the mini shipyard from across the canal, or do the museum. "
"A boat yard for the Gondolas. Fascinating. Book a tour."
