What You'll Do
  • Enjoy a guided walking tour of Venice that takes you to a lesser-known part of the city
  • Learn how gondolas are made and maintained during a visit to a Venetian squero
  • Admire the meticulous workmanship of the master craftsmen as they build the gondolas
This 2-hour tour of Venice includes a 1-hour guided walk from St. Mark's Square to a lesser-known neighborhood and a visit to an authentic squero, or boatyard. At the boatyard you’ll see master craftsmen at work building and repairing gondolas.
What to Expect
If you’ve seen gondolas traversing the Grand Canal in Venice or navigating their way along smaller waterways you’ve probably admired their beauty but likely have little idea of the craftsmanship involved in building and repairing these icons.

On this combined 2-hour tour you’ll visit a local squero, or boatyard, and see for yourself the meticulous workmanship of master craftsmen as they build their boats. Learn about the various types of craft used in Venice, their various parts, and the materials used.

Your walking tour begins next to Saint Mark's Square, where you’ll meet the guide. You’ll head to a less well-known part of Venice on a 1-hour walking tour that ends at the squero.

At the squero you’ll have a tour of the work area and learn about Venetian gondolas and how they’re made and maintained.
