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

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

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
