Free to go in and see Tiziano; don't pay for the entrance to the Sacrament - total scam; you sit in a hot room with a dozen paintings and no access to the other rooms. complete waste of money.

Loved this performance of the Four Seasons in the Chiesa della Pieta, full of vitality and contrasts. The virtuoso was Antonio Aiello. It was preceded by 3 pieces by Sarasate whom we'd never heard of before. A lovely evening.

My husband had booked this concert for us - Rossini to commence followed by Vivaldi's Four Seasons in its entirety. Alberto Martini is a very accomplished musician. It was a lovely concert in beautiful surroundings. It was the perfect end to our day.

Castello is the largest of the six sestieri
