With tickets from €25 (€15 for children) VENEZIA at Teatro San Gallo, is a celebration of Venice. A light hearted, exuberant and entertaining show that illuminates some of the stories and traditions of the city in a very theatrical and enjoyable way. In this, the last private theatre in Venice, where once there were over 100, the cast of live performers bring to life the fascinating background events of this city's glorious and often scandalous past. Our wish at the theatre is to add to your understanding of this Great City's important story and entertain you along the way.

The Teatro main activity is a show about the history of Venice. Sometimes informative, sometimes funny, this little show (, small theater , 4 actors if I recall correctly, about 70% full when we visited) is a nice way to spend an evening in Venice,...More

Went to the show. It was a small theatre, show was all in English. I found the show quite boring, the actors were okay but i feel like the show could of been better. Kids would enjoy the show more i guess.

I've been to see this twice now. It is an English speaking show outlining the history and some of the key characters of venetian history. Very wittingly presented. A great bit of fun for 90 mins or so
