The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.

We attended a concert at La Fenice (Brahms and Buckner) our last night in Venice. The music was excellent, but the facility was breathtaking. A wonderful farewell to Italy. If you can see a performance here, by all means do so; if you cannot, at least tour the facility.

We spent two weeks in Italy & this was truly my highlight 😊 it‘s just so beautiful that it really blew my mind. Definitely take the audioguides and wander around. We were lucky enough to see / hear a rehearsal going on. Even after a day of walking around in Venice this place feels like an oasis. We had the VenezisUnics Card and there the entry was included. We can only recommend this place!

I was lucky to visit in the afternoon when the cast of Faust was rehearsing their opera performance. The theatre is historic and magnificent, coupled with the opportunity to enter a box and view the rehearsal....this experience was fantastic.

I bought obstructed view seats of Don Giovanni as a treat, and was not disappointed. The theatre is a Baroque masterpiece, filled to the brim with ornate gold decor. The opera itself was fabulous too.

I never knew about this venue until it featured in a favourite music video of mine. So this time while in Venice, I had to make this a place to visit.

I pre-booked tickets and audio tour before arriving, but there was very little queing time when we got there. Temperature checks were done upon entering and it all felt very safe.

The royal box itself is stunning, and this gives an amazing view of the whole theatre. Security were sat outside the royal box limiting numbers, which was an advantage as you had the opportunity to take pictures without too many people in the background and gives you the chance to enjoy and take it all in.

I would highly recommend the audio tour, as this gives a much better detail of the history of the venue.

Went for a concert while operas where not played because of covid. Had a beautiful balcony for us. This place is airconditioned which is amazing for an historic opera house! More beautiful than the ROH London which i love and leagues ahead of the Met.
