We categorically disagree with the avalanche of the negative reviews. First and foremost, we don't understand the ubiquitous complain mentioned by our fellow reviewers, 'It is a tourist trap.' Well, we are all tourists, why to pretend that we are locals when we aren't. Venetians do not attend concerts, unless it is a La Fenice performance with the tickets priced over 150 euro and up. Venice is known for not offering many attractions after hours, it is a city that does not boast diverse night life, if any. So, why not to experience the divine music of Antonio Vivaldi in the setting of the authentic period concert hall, even if not the most impressive one? The musicians in our opinion worked well for the money. The entrance fee was ridiculously low, we purchased our advance tickets of the best category via Classictic.com, and it was about 39 euro per person. The show's start time is 8:30 PM. The information provided by Classictic.com tells you to arrive at 8 PM, and it is quite true; perhaps if you want the best seats available in your category, it is even a better idea to show up at 7:45 PM.
The only valid complain is the fact that after the intermission there is no admittance to the restrooms. Having said that, the entire Venice distances and routes are such that it should not present a serious problem; most hotels even located in the distant part of Dorsoduro can be reached in 15 or 20 minutes.
