La Serenissima is a British early music/period instrument ensemble founded in 1994 by violinist Adrian Chandler, who has served as the group's director since its creation. Taking its name from La Serenissima Repubblica di Venezia (Italian for The Most Serene Republic of Venice), the ensemble specializes in the music of Venetian Baroque composer Antonio Vivaldi (1678–1741) and his contemporaries.

Since the release of their first recording in 2003, La Serenissima has received two Gramophone Award nominations, for volumes 1 & 2 of The Rise of the Northern Italian Violin Concerto: 1690-1740.
