Your Cultural Experience

Available Dates: 15th February 2020, 20th February 2020 & 22nd February 2020

Let yourself be carried away by the magic of the Venice Carnival and its strange ability to make you feel in another dimension. Nobody will ask you who you are, but only who you would like to be.

When arriving at the Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal, you will be welcomed by three characters from the Commedia dell’Arte. That great scoundrel of Arlecchino, the cunning Colombina, and the grumpy Pantalone will take you to your reserved table in the hotel foyer.

For these evenings, the hotel's chef Cosimo Gianpaolo has formulated some very special set menus that will involve the senses of taste, smell and sight. But, you will have to pay attention to Arlecchino who, always hungry, will hang around the tables. A tribute will be paid to the most classic aspect of the Venice Carnival, as the Dogaresse di Venezia will perform some pieces of Baroque music. The all-female instrumental quartet will be elegantly dressed in eighteenth-century Venetian costumes.

It doesn’t end here: between one course and another, there will be Burlesque breaks. Here are the three numbers that will be presented during the dinner for your entertainment:

VENICE CARNIVAL: The mystery will gradually make way to an explosion of joy: which mask of the Carnival is hidden behind the long cloak?
VESTIRELLO: a reverse striptease. A classic but ironic Burlesque show, with a surprise effect.
BEES AND FLOWERS: A Burlesque Baloon Dance where a mischievous bee buzzes and teases two little flowers, but … what goes around comes around!

DJ Set
From 22:30, the DJ set will provide you with a music selection that won’t give you a moment to catch a breath.

- Carnival Masquerade Party at the Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal
- Four-course dinner with drinks included only during dinner (wine and water)
- Characters from the Commedia dell’Arte
- “Le Dogaresse di Venezia” baroque music quartet
- Burlesque Show
- DJ SET from 10:30 pm

Dress Code:
The dress code for these events is a period costume or an evening gown with a mask and a cloak. On request, the hotel can sell a “Carnival Domino” - a bag containing:
- A satin cloak with a hood, made in Italy
- A hand-decorated mask of the Venice Carnival, produced in Venice

Buying the “Carnival Domino” is a great way to have a suitable costume for the party, to enjoy walking around the city disguised during the Carnival and, in addition, to be able to take a souvenir of your Venetian experience home.

More information regarding menus can be found here.

Your Destination

Venice is unlike any other destination seen across the world. Constantly defying expectations and captivating visitors, 'The Floating City' is an enchanting, bucket-list holiday spot. Spread across 118 islands and linked together by a winding chain of canals and over 400 unique bridges, Venice's charm never ceases and its immense beauty never fails to impress.

Without doubt, St. Mark's Basilica stands as the city's most famous building. As one of the most important religious buildings in all of Northern Italy, this is a must-stop spot for guests in search of Venice's intricate artwork, ornate detail and fascinating Italian Byzantine architecture. Similarly surrounded by opulent design, St Mark's Square is the perfect introduction to Venice's lively streets, ideally located just across from the iconic Grand Canal.

In terms of activities in Venice, none are more important than a classic and quintessential gondola ride. Lay back, relax and soak up the timeless beauty of the city's canals for a uniquely Venetian experience that you're sure to remember.
