Music in the Square

There is no better place to be in Venice at night than in St. Mark's Square. Part of the reason for this is the dueling orchestras that play classical tunes for lively crowds in different parts of the square. You can observe this for free if you don't mind standing, and you get the benefit of moving around to check out the different orchestras. However, the convenience of a chair and a beverage will only set you back about €20 or so, which, depending on your traveling style (or how tired your feet are) could be totally worth it. Either way, the experience is definitely something to behold.
