One of my favorite things to do on a tour is to visit a workshop or factory, to see how things are made and meet the people who make them.
On a recent trip to Venice I took my group to a squero, a gondola workshop. Roberto Rossi has been building boats for more than 30 years, and is the most respected builder in the city.
