“Hit or miss”
Reviewed 19 October 2012

Unfortunately they weren't doing any outside work when we walked by. There was one guy painting the underside of some gondolas but that's it. The area around it was lovely and I still enjoyed it. I would go back again to try and catch them at work.

“Go find this without a map”
Reviewed 2 October 2012

The journey is the key here. Find this place on a map, then leave the map in your hotel and try to find it by memory. I guarantee you'll have a good time, see parts of Venice you'll love and avoid the crush of cruise ship folks. Make sure you stop at any wine bar, gelato store or cicchetti place that interests you along the way. Save the big tourist attractions for later in the evening after the cruise ship masses re-embark.

“Watch Gondolas being built and repaired”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

One of the only places where you can see gondolas being built.
located in a quieter area of Venice near to a shop selling good ice creams.
