Discover the squeri, the shipyard where traditional lagoon boats are built in the city that has been built to be navigated around

What to expect?

Enter the world of Venetian squeri, small boatyards where expert craftsmen build and repair wooden boats. These activities are just as ancient as Venice itself, everything is still the way it used to be. Just a few steps away from the usual tourist routes, let’s meet the last master boat builders that pass on the art of building gondolas and all other typical lagoon boats.

A city born on water implies another logical consequence: the use of the "forcola" the venetian oarlock used for rowing in the venetian way.

Be enchanted by the care and patience characterizing these professions carrying on such an ancient tradition.

Walk around discovering lagoon boats moored on canal banks, ending up on a gondola ferry experiencing it is still a useful mean of transportation for local residents of this floating city.
