One of our favorites is Leonard Cohen and he will be at St. Mark's for a concert on Aug. 3rd, the day we arrive in Venice. We don't want to try to fight the crowds at the square. Good tickets are between 200 and 350 euros for 2, too much for us on this trip. Is there a good place for us to hear the concert without actually seeing it?
Is there a place along the canal in Dorsodura where we could get a table and have some wine or maybe even dinner at 9:30pm? Is some place where we could just sit and listen? Is there a hotel with a bar high enough for us to both see the square and hear the concert? Could we hear the concert from behind the square in Castello?
Anyway you get the idea. Thanks in advance for any tips you might give us. Lee
