Attractions near the Hotel Cavalletto e Doge Orseolo
An evening at the opera
The setting for many famous premiere opera performances and one of Europe’s most revered theatre establishments, the Teatro La Fenice should sit firmly on your to-do list while in Venice. The opulent gilded interiors and fabulous acoustics are the perfect environment for a grand Venetian operatic experience.
If you’re not able to get your hands on tickets to a concert or opera during your stay, take a guided tour through the magnificent halls and grounds of the grand theatre to learn about the fascinating history of this famous arts venue, which dates back to 1789.
St Mary of the Friars
The austere facade of this 13th-Century Venetian church does little to prepare visitors for the breathtaking artwork tucked away inside. The light and airy church contains a vast collection of Renaissance art and sculptures including notable pieces such as Giovanni Bellini’s Madonna with Child and Saints, and the controversial Assumption of the Virgin by Titian, who is buried in the church.
With smaller side chapels also showcasing fascinating pieces, you can spend hours wandering around, losing yourself in the beauty of the Italian Renaissance in this serene setting.
