My wife and I were lucky enough to have a wedding ceremony at the Scuola Grande dei Carmini after it was recommended by our fantastic wedding planner.
We arrived by water taxi and instantly felt like we had arrived in what felt like the real...More
This isn’t a critique of the events that take place in here. I presume the Scuola simply rents the space and has little or nothing to do with the artistic content of the various events. I will therefore limit my comments to the building itself...More
Bought tickets to see Vivaldi concert here, with professional musicians in costume, and ballet. I expected a fairly high end performance with classically trained musicians and dancers. What we saw was a let down. The musicians performed in costume, but maybe because they were afraid...More
Before our trip we booked tickets online at the classic Venetian former church of Scuola Grande dei Carmine For Vivaldi’s 4 Seasons w Ballerina & Masked Mini Orchestra. The structure itself is classic & it’s a museum of art & paintings. Enjoyed a charming Vivaldi...More
In truth, I should probably give this place no more than a star or two: the last thing any Venetian depository of art needs is crowds. On the other hand, there could not have been more than three people when I was there, and that...More
We had booked for a Vivaldi concert & had lots of trouble finding this place! We eventually did with the help of our Tom Tom & thoroughly enjoyed our concert which included a meal at a nearby restaurant beforehand. The acoustics are beautiful 7 we...More
Having been to Venice several times I was looking for places I had not been to . Scuola Dei Carmini seemed a good choice and I was very taken by the beauty of the Frescos and the fact that when I was there only 2...More
I wholeheartedly echo the positive reviews here - this performance is a little-visited hidden gem. The singers, dancer, and the small band are all superb. The 1 hour length was perfect for me. Also superb value vs. the price. The venue is gorgeous as well....More
One would think with the great number of tourists in Venice, especially in late summer, that no attraction would be uncrowded but somehow this special place has escaped that issue almost completely. This is the place to go to appreciate great art, including amazing Tiepolo...More
Artsy is the defining mood of this neighborhood with street artists, students, painters, sculptors, restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica buttresses the neighborhood to the east. Gondolas bob
in the morning light. The Accademia Bridge crosses the Grand Canal. A back street doubles as basketball court. Palaces house residents, or like Ca' Foscari a university, or a museum like Ca’ Rezzonico that attracts Venetians for concerts. Dorsoduro reveals its industrial roots too, in buildings converted to house university departments or exhibitions. Campo Santa Margherita bursts with youthful energy from local students. Foot traffic bustles to and from Piazzale Roma and Santa Lucia train station. Evening commuters pause for an aperitivo. Neighbors exchange confidants in a campo (square) on their way to market.
