Vivaldi's music seems ever present for tourists in Venice. But for us, the goal was to attend a performance of Vivaldi's music in 'his' church. And we achieved it... gorgeous acoustics and a beautiful atmosphere. If the music itself, performed by I Virtuosi Italiani, was...More

Don't miss the Vivaldi concert in this church (Virtuosi Italian orchestra). The church is beautiful and full of history.
