Accessible Opera, as though it was in your sitting room, but its a palace in Venice. Stunningly personal. Fun fun fun with 3 light and easy Operas to choose, 7 nights a week. It will make so many people's trip to Venice even more memorable.

Of course no trip to venice is complete without a trip to the Opera. This covers all angles with a really intimate show in an amazing Palazzo. The quality of the vocals moved us to tears and the dynamic movement from room to room following the story was great. very highly recommended.

I thoroughly recommend a trip to the opera. We went on Monday 1st February. You need to go to make a booking. Once confirmed you are sent an email. The venue only accepts cash and you need to become a member to visit. It is an intimate venue which enhance the experience. You can buy a guide for 5 euros... More

I am so glad we pre-booked to come and see Rigoletto. We Sussed out where the venue was as suggested by previous visitors and were very glad we did. The whole experience was thoroughly enjoyable and the standard of singing and playing was wonderful. At one point I had goose bumps all over. Superb!

Great night, great show. We were really impressed with the very high quality of the musicians and performers voices. The way the show moves from room to room, with the audience sitting so close to the action, and often in the scene makes is a unique experience worth doing. Very good.

I visited the Musica a Palazzo with my wife to see the Barber of Seville in November. We're not regular opera goers, but have been to a handful of 'regular' performances. This incredibly intimate production inside a grand canal side house was fantastic and fantastically different. The only slightly tricky thing was finding the entrance to the Palazzo, it's tucked...

This is our second visit to this venue. Last night we saw La Traviata very competently performed by three artists, a string quartet and piano in the intimate surroundings of the state rooms of a small palazzo on the Grand Canal. My non opera loving husband enjoyed it very much. The venue is not very big and each act takes... More

We visited this event in September. The performance is as it describes: there are several rooms in a Ventian house and the audience move between the rooms for the different scenes of the opera. there is an interval with a glass of wine for everyone. The evening was 'low brow' rather than 'high brow' and a very accessible was to... More

January 1 presentation of Rigoletto. orchestra ( quatuor) was excellent. Actors were incredible, small venue ( approx. 50 in crowd) ) participants feel like they are part of the opera. At one point during a heavy heart scene, Rigoletto looked at me right in the eyes - and I could feel his anguish - I will never forget that. If... More

Staying in San Marco

Neighborhood Profile
San Marco
The most famous sestiere (district) in Venice has one of the world's most famous squares, St. Mark's (Piazza San Marco). Anchored on one end by the basilica, clustered around it are restaurants, museums, shops, orchestras playing in the square, pigeons, the grand pink Doge’s Palace (Palazzo Ducale), the soaring campanile bell tower, an astrological clock tower, plus gorgeous cafes and restaurants like Florian and Quadri. Piazza San Marco is beloved by Venetians themselves. They book a table anytime, which offers a buffer from the fray. This grand outdoor drawing room attracts Venetians for a stroll too, especially late in the afternoon when the hoards of daytrippers thin out. It's simply a grand place to meet.
