    2. Venice: Traveling Opera in a Historic Palace on Grand Canal

    Experience Italian Opera in one of the most important Venetian-Gothic style palaces in Venice, Palazzo Barbarigo-Minotto. Within this historical venue, an innovative approach to opera has been conceived, with a formula that focuses on the interaction between the singers, the musicians, and the audience. This gives spectators the feeling of living Opera ‘from the inside’. This sensation is amplified by the clever 360-degree use of the ‘stage’ and by having the guests move through 3 different rooms within the Palazzo, one for each act of the show. The whole setting changes, not just the background. Reviving a tradition dating back to the late 1800s, this reimagining is brought to life by some of the finest lyrical voices, accompanied by a talented small group of strings and a piano: a virtuoso ensemble who performed in some of the most prestigious concert halls in the world.

    This was fantastic and totally worth the money! My husband and I traveled to Rome, Florence and Venice in July 2018. We were on a budget and didn't want to bust the budget, so went with the "shared" gondola option and then splurged to have the serenade option. The experience was unforgettable and easily the best part of our whole trip! The singer and the man with the accordion had great chemistry and were constantly interacting w/ my husband and I. I thought the 20 mins sounded kinda short, but it ended up being the perfect amount of time. Do it at sunset around 7:30 if possible. Highly recommend this to all my family members and friends, it was simply enchanting and something my husband and I will never forget!

One of the best things I did in Venice. I heard so many times not to take the gondolas, that they are overpriced. Since I’m traveling solo the romantic appeal was worth the money. But every time I saw one go by it just said “Venice” to me. I’m so glad I signed up for the touristy experience. Being in the gondola and floating through the back ways was amazing, and totally unlike walking the streets. And then the excitement of the Grand Canal was magnificent. The guide made the whole experience even better.

We love, love, loved this private food tour. We have some dietary restrictions and Giada was able to accommodate with some excellent tastes. Giada was very knowledgeable about the area and the best places to find delicious food. We would highly recommend this tour to all visitors of the Venice area. This was our third trip to Venice and we walked away feeling like we understood the city and the food options so much more.

I was worried about the reviews saying it was too short but I feel that we got to see all the necessary points plus some. I went with my 7 year old and she was exhausted by the end. Andrea was full of information and he spoke great english. He was very personable and easy to talk to. He even got the whole group to sing for my birthday, which made it extra special.

Excellent excursion. The guide showed us central Venice district, answered all the questions we had about a life a Venetian and gave some tips. This tour was the first thing we did after the arrival so it gave us a nice introduction to the city, where everything is and it’s history.

What an awesome experience. No time wasted standing in lines. Very knowledgeable guide who loved her job. Would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to visit Venice.
