We start this gondola tour from the Accademia, house of the largest collection of Venetian paintings, located in front of the famous “Galleries”,in the Grand Canal. The gondola enters the canal of San Trovaso from where you can admire the homonymous church that recalls the classic lines of Palladio. Next to the church is situated the famous Squero di San Trovaso, the most characteristic site where the gondolas are built, still active nowadays.
Running since 1600, today the Squero continues the ancient tradition of building and maintaining the Gondolas, a Venetian pride.
We continue our journey inside the residential area of Dorsoduro, with its most beautiful buildings in different architectural styles, until we return to the Grand Canal and admire, among others, the Palazzo Grassi, home to prestigious exhibitions of modern art and Cà Foscari, the University of Venice.
We conclude the tour returning to the boarding point.
