La Fenice Theatre

Interesting
This understated square has since 1792 been the site of one of the world's leading opera houses. Badly damaged by fire in 1996, La Fenice has been returned to its former glory. Whilst updating the theatre (with the creation of recital and chamber music rooms), Aldo Rossi has preserved the superb concert hall with its green ceiling, stucco work and caryatids, as well as its foyers lit by Murano chandeliers and decorated with phoenix-themed tapestries.

Castello: the Venetians' Venice!

You may feel the urge to put some distance between yourself and the jam-packed Piazza San Marco. Rest assured, life continues as normal in the Venetians' Venice, for example in Castello, a bustling working-class district fifteen minutes east of the Piazza San Marco. In the biggest and most highly populated of Venice's six sestieri (districts), washing still hangs out to dry at the windows, the elderly quietly go about their shopping, and bambini play football in the streets.
