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.

I heard about the opera from two different colleagues who had each been and raved about it. They weren't wrong. This was my favorite part of visiting Venice and one of the highlights of our three weeks in Europe. We saw the Barber of Seville, although depending on the night you attend, the shows vary. You feel like you are... More

I ordered a ticket for Musica A Palazzo way before my planned trip to Venice. Other reviews urged me to get to the theater (really a palazzo) early. I am so glad I did! Like nearly everything else in Venice, the site was hard to find, and directions given freely by locals were generally incorrect. When I reached a bridge... More

Great voices. Great historic location. Very unique experience. Close proximity to the artists. Be ready to grab your seats asap after each intermission, they changed rooms 3 times:))) but overall it did not actually matter, we enjoyed it a lot!!!!

I am a long time opera fan and have seen a production of Rigoletto before but this was truly an unforgettable experience and the highlight of my trip to Venice. The intimacy of the performance is what sets this form of opera apart. It was incredible to literally feel the power of the singers' voices reverberating through my body -... More

This was an amazing experience. We watched La Traviata. For each scene we moved to a different room. It was like being in the house, rather than the audience. Beautifully candle lit. We were served with a glass of prosecco in the interval. The venue was not difficult to find if you carefully follow the instructions. However on reaching the... More

By far my family's best and most memorable experiences in Venice.y children (9&11) and I had never been to the opera and dad had. We all loved it and I think the shorter version was a good starting place. The setting is 100guests to a small cast that is seated in an old palace in very intimate ways that allow... More

This is, without doubt, the best live performance experience of my life. Amazing doesn't even come close. Incredibly well performed and the intimacy of the venue - and the different locations in line with the plot - made it exceptional. Can't recommend this highly enough. I saw La Traviata.

We saw La Traviata. The setting is an old palace and the audience goes from room-to-room for each act. There is a four-piece musical ensemble. The quality of the opera was great but there were only 3 characters that sang. There was a lot omitted and the story was somewhat abbreviated because of the limited cast. There was a nice... More

A friend had recommended this venue to experience an opera in a very different setting. The performances take place in a old mansion. Each act of the opera is performed in a different room so the audience (about 30 people or so) move from room to room. The low number of attendees and the relative small rooms create a participatory... 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.
