Other Useful Information

We begin this gondola ride at the Accademia, which crosses the Grand Canal, outside the famous “Galleries” which host the largest collection of Venetian painting. Entering the San Trovaso Canal, you’ll admire the church of the same name which recalls the classic Palladian lines. Next to the church is the traditional “Squero” San Trovaso boatyard which has been continuously active in gondola construction since the 1600s. Today the Squero carries on the age-old tradition of building and maintaining gondolas, the pride of Venice. The ride continues through the quiet residential areas of Dorsoduro, with its beautiful palazzi in varied historical styles, returning to the Grand Canal to see Palazzo Grassi, host to modern art exhibitions and Ca’ Foscari, the headquarters of the University of Venice. We finish by returning to the starting point.
