Perfect concert in a beautiful Venetian church. The musicians were terrific, and Vivaldi and Bach were flowing through the instruments.

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

The history of this theater is so closely linked to Venice, this activity seems essential to me.

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

Guided tours with the audio guide are ideal, you can set your own pace.
