Adventure Coordinators Insider Tip:

One of my favourite memories in Venice was a concert by Interpreti Veneziani.  It's a concert so unforgettable that, in the words of Lonely Planet, "you’ll never listen to The Four Seasons again without hearing summer storms erupting over the lagoon, or snow-muffled footsteps hurrying over footbridges in winter’s-night intrigues".
