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.

We went to see the Barbiere di Siviglia at this beautiful Palazzo Barbarigo at the Grand Canal. There were only a few people, about 40 in the public and we all sat around the 'stage' which was a different room for each act. The candle light, the costumes, the musicians and the singers, all together a very special experience. During... More

With little previous interest or knowledge of opera, we attended La Traviata staged in a palazzo (17th century palace) on the edge of the Grand Canal. We arrived at 8.20pm for 8.30pm start and most of the 70 seats had been taken - so suggest better to arrive sharp when the doors open at 8pm. The opera is performed by... More

Very different from other shows in that you (the audience) are basically part of the set! The performers even interact with you on occasion, handing you things to hold for them, singing right at you, etc. Great experience and highly highly recommended!

We booked that opera and were a little dissapointed as we are opera fans. This was a competent performance but the best part were the string trio and pianist. The rooms for each act were tiny and we were squashed as probably 70 people attended. Considering we were in a Palazzo, I thought the rooms would be much bigger, including... More

Booked the Barber of Seville for my mums birthday and also took my 13 year old son (who I had prewarned that he might not enjoy it but to at least pretend for grandma's sake!). Well, not only was I amazed by the performance and the music, but he was totally enthralled, laughing throughout and thoroughly following the story!! It... More

The highlight of our 5 day in Venice. Beautiful setting and wonderful performances. The musicians are extremely talented. Due to the place and small audience you feel part of it! Definitely recommended to introduce your loved one to opera! Amazing

We had never been to the opera and when in Venice & all that..! So when we heard about Musica we decided why not. Although w arrived just after 8 (when the doors apparently opened) clearly others knew something we didn't as the place was almost full! This, we were quite far back at the start. However could still see... More

So we've never been to an opera but I thought, why not, and the husband gave the go ahead to try it. So we thought we'd get some culture from it. I read the reviews here and took their advice: found the location early, filled out the forms beforehand and had the cash ready. We also read about La Traviata... More

Found Musica a Palazzo purely through TripAdvisor recommendation and so pleased I booked "La Traviata" as part of our Venecian experience. We were celebrating our 25th Wedding Anniversary and at first I was struggling to feel the romance in Venice through all the tourism. However, a booking to see an intimate opera at this Palace I quickly discovered why Venice... 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.
