Don't miss a chance to hear the beautiful music of Venice on ancient instruments in a glorious setting played by enthusiastic and accomplished musicians. Be sure to look at the nearby museum with the instruments and a great selection of recordingsd. Divine. I went twice in 4 days!

With youthful exuberance and Italian brio, the Interpreti Veneziani performs music of Vivaldi and the ancient masters. This chamber ensemble plays on prestigious original instruments and has received international acclaim from audiences and critics alike for its incredibly beautiful and passionate performances. The series takes place in San Vidal Church, which was restored in the late 17th Century and displays Italian Renaissance works of Vittore Carpaccio and Italian Rococo works of Giovanni Battista Piazzetta. The brilliant programs, performed in harmony with the unforgettable atmosphere, create unity between music and art. Quintessential Venice!
