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.

My husband and our friends saw Rigoletto. We are not "opera people" so I was not sure what to do expect. Was so taken with the performance and being so close to the performers was amazing. Everything made for a perfect evening I will not forget. Highly recommend.

This was the most amazing experience!! We had booked in advance and they emailed us to say they had high demand for the evening and were putting on a 2nd performance, allowing us to change times if we wanted to. The performers were first rate and it was really amazing to see singers so close by.Being in a small area... More

Loved the opera and the ambiance of it being in a palace. The music and opera singers were phenomenal and just beautiful to listen to. Acoustics were awesome and they served the best bellini I have ever had. Very intimate venue. Our first opera was a joy!

Having never been to an opera before this was the perfect place to be. The experience was magical totally breathtaking. The intimacy of the venue was great, we were lucky to be seated in the front row twice, the singers are standing just beside you. No matter where you are seated you would have a good view of the performance.... More

This is for Opera lovers! It is an amazing and intimate experience, where you get to be very close to the action. Each act occurs in a different part of the palace, which adds some mystery and excitement to the experience. You do have to book it in advance, or try the wait list (which worked for us, but we...

We, a family of four with two adult children, found a brochure in the hotel describing this opera event in the Palazzo Barbarigo Minotto, not far from the vaporetto stop at Santa Maria del Giglio. We were immediately charmed by the idea. The number of spectators was limited to 70 and every act of the opera we went to, Il... More

I took my children and some of their friends ( 14yrs- 28yrs) here when we visited Venice. I had really wanted to go to the opera house but the programme was a bit heavy for some first time opera goes. So I booked this and it was a triumph! It's in a real Venetian palace, worn and unpromising down little... More

What a wonderful evening we had. I must admit that I'm no opera buff but the performance was superb. Our only other opera experience was in Naples when we saw Il Barbiere Di Siviglia, which we adored. When I noticed they where doing this opera in Venice , I thought why not. The concept of doing it in an old... 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.
