How to listen to the orchestra of St. Mark's square in Venice
In the evening, when St. Mark's Square is almost empty, you can suddenly hear the music of Vivaldi, Verdi and Puccini. It's largest orchestras of three Venice restaurants - Quadri, Lavena and Florian - begin a daily competition for the title of the best musicians of the city. Spectators cheer them with their applause.

Come to the square to 7 pm and re-fall in love with Venice with the sound of greatest Italian composers' music.
