Squero di San Trovaso Reviews
Mi è stato consigliato una visita allo Squero di San Trovaso...... Detto così non sa di nulla..... Ma quando ti trovi di fronte questo particolare angolino di Venezia, dove sembra che il tempo si sia ... more »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...
Ottimi spritz, abbiamo scoperto il Select, vero aperitivo veneziano. Gelosissimo e vari i cicchetti! more »Excellent spritz, we discovered the Select, real Venetian aperitif. Gelosissimo and various Cicchetti!
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.
