ABOUT THIS TOOV

Lo Squero is one of the few workshops in Venice where gondolas are made the authentic way. Beautifull setting and very interesting to see.
Venice people are said to have membrans (?) between their toes. Non-locals need to take a boat to cross the Canal Grande. It's located on Dorsoduro,
You're ought to do it standing, legs widespread, on a traghetto (ferrie). You can take the Traghetto San Marco, Traghetto San Marcuola, Traghetto... It's a great way to take a ride in a real Gondola (did it!) and saving some money to take one more of the best icecreams in Venice on the Campo dei Frari, dine at Alla Zucca or have a delicious dessert at A Casa Mia.

'Gondolas are hand made using 8 different types of wood (fir, oak, cherry, walnut, elm, mahogany, larch and lime) and are composed of 280 pieces. The oars are made of beech wood and the left side of the gondola is made longer than the right side to counterbalance the weight of the gondolier. ' source & see more about gondolas
