Dorsoduro & the art of Gondola Making

Climb aboard your private water taxi and head towards one of Venice’s most picturesque neighborhoods called Dorsoduro. Here you learn about the fine craft of building gondolas, which is demonstrated by one of the most traditional companies in the city. Enjoy a special visit alongside the family business, and breathe in the authentic smells of wood and paint, discovering the incredible technique involved in the creation of one of Venice’s most iconic boats. At the end of your visit, discover the authentic flavor of the ‘real Venice’ without the bustling crowds of San Marco as you discover Dorsoduro. Culture is key in this unflashy neighborhood where pretty bridges, colorful houses, Gothic style churches and renowned temples of art like the Accademia and the Peggy Guggenheim reign.
