Overview

Venice offers wonderful concert and sightseeing opportunities for your choir.  Our favourite performance venues include Santa Maria dei Miracoli, a lovely church with tiered stage and an organ, which attracts appreciating audiences for its concerts, and St Mark’s Basilica which offers the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sing mass here.

There is plenty to do here beyond performing: you can take a private boat to the three islands of the Venetian lagoon, discover this magnificent city's treasures through a guided tour, visit famous landmarks such as the Doge’s Palace and St Mark’s Basilica.
