Carnevale in Venice is one of the world’s greatest celebrations. Venetians have been donning masks and elaborate, fanciful costumes for hundreds and hundreds of years, partying before the somber Lenten season begins. You can experience these traditions first hand when you travel to Venice, pick out a colorful dress or suit as well as an elaborate mask at a traditional atelier and attend one of Venice’s grand masked balls at a 5-star hotel or historical palace. It will be a night you will never forget! During the day, walk through the city where you’re sure to see many Venetians and visitors alike dressed in costume. This is the perfect time to visit Venice!

Special Note About Costumes:

During Carnival in Venice many people in Venice dress up during the day for their tours or just for fun.  However, the traditional costume which you are renting is not required on all tours - only for the Gala.  Therefore, feel free to bring any costume that you would wear for Halloween in the USA with you so you will be more comfortable during the activities.  You can also buy a mask to wear during the day. Many shops are dedicated just to making and selling masks. 

If you have any questions about costumes and masks for Carnival in Venice, please feel free to ask.


Upgrades & Extensions:

There are endless possibilities to what you can do before, during, and after this experience.  

Upgrades:  you may upgrade to a 5* hotel in Venice or add private transfers.

Extensions:  you can extend the number of nights you stay in Venice either before or after the package dates. 

If you'd like to extend your trip elsewhere in Italy, here are our suggestions:

  • Big 3 - If this is your first trip to Italy, since you've already spent time in Venice, finish your introduction to Italy with a trip down to Florence and Rome.
  • Northern Italy - Head over to Lake Como or Maggiore to enjoy the breathtaking natural scenery and then down to the artistic metropolis (and fashion capitol) Milan.
