There are many things to do in Venice at night. We can offer you a number of Venice tours to choose from. Venice is a city of passion and there are a whole range of options that you can choose to share in order to spend a truly unique evening!
For hundreds of years, Venice has been a popular destination for music lovers; between the early 16th century and the close of the 18th century in particular, the city was world-renowned for its operas, extravagant masquerade balls, sublime church choirs and master composers such as Antonio Vivaldi and Claudio Monteverdi. As one Frenchman of the 17th century remarked, “in every home, someone is playing a musical instrument or singing. There is music everywhere.”
Today, Venice is still alive with the sound of music, thanks to the many palaces, churches and theaters that still regularly stage all kinds of concerts.
Venice is famous for its classical music concerts which often take place in her grand historic buildings.If you are a live music fan, why not attend a classical music concert played by the most famous orchestra in town, in a beautiful Baroque church which is now a concert venue.
So we decided to create for you a “Venice Evening” package with a 3-step program to allow you to relax a bit! We take care of everything!

Venice evening – step 1: Gondola ride at night
If you are looking for romance then there is no more romantic way to spend an evening than on a private gondola ride. The Venetian gondolier will show you the city by night navigating the narrow waterways which are quieter after dark.
When the city and its beautiful buildings are lit up at night and those lights are reflected in the water of the grand canal as you glide by, it is a probably one of the most magical and romantic experiences in the world to experience.This is a very special tour of Venice.
Venice evening – step 2: Romantic dinner for 2
Venice can be also quite surprising gastronomically speaking. Choosing the right restaurant in a tourist destination is not easy! We often have the impression of being cheated!
And we end up not even tasting the famous typical dishes that we wanted to try! The task is not easy in a city that we do not know!
Trust us! The places we recommend are frequented by the Venetians themselves, and you’ll get a dinner at a special price! Depending on your taste and budget, you can adjust your choice.
We have selected 2 options:
- A Venetian restaurant, where you can enjoy a dinner of typical specialties, refined fish dishes, but also simply rely on the craving of the moment knowing that the dishes and wines on the menu will all be of quality. We reserve for you an excellent restaurant in the area of Ponte dell’Accademia (Campo Santo Stefano), with a proposed menu including appetizer, main course, water and dessert for 44€ per person. Check the menu!
- An Italian pizzeria, where you can enjoy a delicious pizza prepared in the traditional way! We propose a pizzeria in the vicinity of St. Mark’s Square, for 22€ per person you can choose a dish from the menu (pizza or pasta), a dessert and a drink. Have a look at the menu here !
Venice evening – step 3: Vivaldi Concert at the Baroque Church of San Vidal
During the golden centuries of the Serenissima, music was present in all the Venetian salons, ancestors of the bars with live music! Venice was known all over the world for its operas and its extravagant masked balls!
In short, music was everywhere and Venice, the harmonious city, cultivated one of the richest musical traditions in Italy. It was in this context that Antonio Vivaldi, the greatest of Venetian composers, lived and worked.
Today, Venice is still alive with the sound of music, thanks to the many palaces, churches and theaters that still regularly organize all kinds of concerts. To attend a concert of Vivaldi’s music in Venice is a very special emotion.
So to end your evening, go to the church of San Vidal to listen to some music! Come and attend the concert given by one of the historical ensembles of the city! They will enchant you with the liveliness and dynamism of their performance.
“The Four Seasons” is performed on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. On the other days it is possible to attend different Vivaldi concerts. The concert takes place in the solemn atmosphere of a splendid baroque church, the church of San Vidal, a few steps from the Ponte dell’Accademia. Consult the program here.
