More about Gondola

Venice has actually about 400 gondola in active service, and all of them are absolutely hand-made. The typical Venetian gondola is built by several hundred parts made from nine different types of wood.

A gondola is a flat bottom boat capable to skim water of only some centimetres deep; its design is especially made for the Venetian lagoon water.
The price of a Gondola may vary from 18.000€ to 22.000€, depending on the finitures and, with the adequate maintenance, it’s life can reach several decades.

Most of these boatyards usually are in locations not visited by tourists, but the oldest and most famous yard in Venice --the Squero di San Trovaso—is located at Zattere, in front of Giudecca island. Although the squero isn't open to the public, anyone can enjoy a view of the gondola craftsmen at work from the opposite bank of the San Trovaso Canal.
