The best shows to see in Venice during your holidays

Italian holidays, finally! Shows to see in Venice


After months of hard work in front of your computer, you can take a well-deserved rest. Now is the time to visit one of the most beautiful cities in the world: Venice, the city of love! You can get lost in the calli, the small streets that make up the intricate labyrinth of the lagoon city; take a ride on a gondola; have an aperitif at a bacaro, a traditional place where Venetians enjoy local wines with the famous small snacks known as cicchetti—it really is a dream! And at night? Keep the dream going with shows to see in Venice that deserve your attention.


Wait a minute—shows to see in Venice, yes, but where?


Just steps from the Rialto Bridge, in Campo San Salvador. Make sure you also visit the Church of San Salvador and The Annunciation by Titian. Here is the Scuola Grande di San Teodoro, a 17th-century building that was the seat of the historic confraternity of St. Theodore, the patron saint of Venice with St Mark. At night, the Scuola is home to the best shows to see in Venice, namely the classical music concerts of I Musici Veneziani, an orchestra of musicians in period costumes that takes you on a journey back to the times of the Republic of Venice.
