As a treat for my 50th my husband bought us tickets for this opera and ballet combo. A very small church with great acoustics. Approximately 40 other people in attendance. The ballet interludes were a delight. The opera singers especially the gentleman were fantastic and...More

The Scuola dei Carmini, located near the Campo Santa Marguerita, was easy to find in the Dorsoduro district. The draw was the opportunity to see 9 paintings by Tiepolo whose style of painting contrasts with the older Venetian artists. These paintings were found in the...More

Went to the above last night. What an embarrassment. Opera arias with ballet interludes. Worse than a school production. The musicians, particularly the cellist, were beyond terrible. Even the well known arias were almost unrecognisable. And to top it all, tickets were pushing £50 each....More

The Scuola Grande dei Carmini is not as grand as Scuola Grande San Rocco: a more intimate affair but definitely one of the Venetian Scuole Grandi well worth a visit. The Scuola Grande dei Carmini is situated in the sestriere of Dorsoduro near the very...More

Artsy is the defining mood of this neighbourhood with
street artists, students, painters, sculptors,
restorers, curators, historians, collectors, heirs and
heiresses rubbing elbows. Peggy Guggenheim's
collection, now a museum, lures chic locals for
evening art aperitifs. Traditionalists and visionaries
cocoon in bohemian luxury. La Salute basilica
buttresses the neighbourhood to the east. Gondolas bob
