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 theatres 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.
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 venice tour.
Venice can be also quite surprising gastronomically speaking; if you want to try a dinner made of specialities di venezia. Places we recommend to you are frequented by Venetians themselves, and you will get dinner at a special price! There is obviously lots of seafood available as venice sits on the water. Sardines in saor (a kind of sweet and sour sauce) is one local dish, Baccala mantacato is another. This is a dish of creamed dried cod which is prepared by soaking poaching and blending the fish into a mousse seasoned with olive oil and pepper. but there are plenty of others for you to try. You will also want to try chicetti a kind of Italian tapas which are offered in bacari, the wine bars of venice.
If you’re lucky enough to be visiting during the Carnevale (Carnival) period, then you must try fritole, which are sweet pastry fritters traditionally prepared and eaten as part of the festivities before Lent. Made with a rich batter consisting of flour, eggs, butter, milk, sugar, pine nuts and raisins, they are molded in balls, deep fried in oil and dusted with sugar. Highly recommended for those with a sweet tooth!
