Dating back to 1162, Venice Carnevale is a legendary party which takes place every year just before Lent. This year, we’re giving you the chance to join in the celebrations, with a three-day break specially designed to showcase the best of both the festivities and the city. The highlight is a trip to La Nuit Enchantée, this year’s Carnival In Love Grand Ball, with its fairytale theme. Before the event, you’ll have the chance to decorate your own mask during a workshop and choose a costume at one of the city’s ateliers. There’s time to discover the city too, take a walking tour in the steps of one historical lover of Carnival – Casanova, and there is plenty of time to get lost in the meandering streets yourself.

Day Two: Marvellous Masks

Start with a private tour uncovering Casanova’s Venice and the sensuality of the city and have lunch at leisure. An emblem of Carnevale, masks have been worn in Venice since antiquity (when they were a cunning way of disguising the wearer while they partook in hedonistic activities!). Make sure you’re properly attired with a morning trip to one of the city’s mask ateliers, a fascinating traditional shop where you be able to take part in a workshop to decorate your own mask, ready for the celebrations later.

Try on several before deciding on the one you want to rent for the big night – it will be delivered to your hotel in plenty of time for the party. At 6.30pm, it’s time for an experience of a lifetime, the “La Nuit Enchantée” ball at Palazzo Contarini, 10 mins walk from the Piazza San Marco. Venetian costume and mask is essential for attendees at this night of dinner and dancing, where the theme for 2020 is ‘The Magic of Love’.
