This concert was worth every euro— from the beginning stroke of the violinists bow to the very last note. The musicians were fabulously entertaining and the ambiance of the church with its wonderful acoustics and beautiful paintings, architectural details, and antique instruments on display, made the night magical. I received two CDs as a surprise gift to take this beautiful music home with me…a real treasure, indeed.

Amazing place.. I did visit in morning when they just started working.. less people then and you can walk slowly around without noise..

The information contained in the audiobook replaces any guide;) very nice theater-opera. I recommend

Well worth booking in advance for this glimpse of La Fenice without the actual opera!

A very enjoyable concert in great venue, more than worth the time and money
