The concert was billed as ‘Vivaldi and other baroque composers’ and ‘come and listen to the music played where it was composed’. I have three issues with this concert, it was freezing cold, there were too few musicians to make any impact in the large...More

We visited this church while strolling 🚶‍♀️ by the grand canal, then discovered Vivaldi himself was baptised and later worshipped here. It is ornate and yet cosy like many Churches in Venice. Not with the grandeur of those in Rome but still gorgeous and charming....More

If you are knowledgeable about chamber music do not go to this concert. A waste of money. Vivaldi's Four Seasons was played like they were racing to the end. The first violin had no tone because he was playing so fast (and perhaps an inferior...More

This church, which is nearly on the site of Vivaldi's church, is a great host for the orchestra I Virtuosi Italiani. The concert of primarily the Four Seasons, started promptly at 8.30 and finished at 9.30 - the perfect length of time for after-dinner digestion,...More

We visited this church to enjoy a performance of Vivaldi's Four seasons. It was fantastic. The tickets were reasonably priced too. Great evening . Very close to St Marks Square so easy to get to.

Castello
Castello is the largest of the six sestieri

within Arsenale, the naval base, which occupies over
one-fifth the area of Venice. This gentrified maritime
neighbourhood feels busy but casual. Castello’s side
streets are laid back, with small boats lining canals
criss-crossed by laundry. Semiannual exhibitions add a
