Full description

All is set at the Hotel Carlton on the Grand Canal to make you relish the 2019 Carnival thanks to four unmissable masquerade events! Saturday 23 and Thursday 28 February and also Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 March get ready to celebrate the craziest time of the year with masks, fun, music and great food.

Upon your arrival at the hotel, you will be welcomed by three characters from the Commedia dell'Arte ... Arlecchino, Colombina and Pantalone will show you to your table, where you will enjoy the delicious menu purposely created for the event by the chef of the restaurant 'La Cupola '.


A tantalizing mix of aromas and flavors defines the refined menu of the evenings:

'Carlton style' seafood salad with salmon, cuttlefish, shrimp and sardines in saor with vinegar vegetables

Maccheroncini of egg pasta with seafood sauce, prawns and cuttlefish tagliatelle

Sea bass steak with vegetable bouquet on creamed potatoes, leeks and organic extra virgin olive oil

Baked meringue ice cream, rum and candied ginger and Carnival fritters


During the dinner, there will be soft Baroque music in the background performed by the Dogaresse di Venezia, a female instruments quartet that, for the occasion, will be dressed with refined Venetian 18th century costumes.

In between the dinner courses, you will be entertained with three short burlesque shows, in which irreverence, irony, elegance and humor will create the perfect atmosphere to celebrate the carnival at its best!

  • Venice Carnival: the mystery will gradually give way to an explosion of joy: which mask of the Carnival is hidden behind the long cloak?
  • Vestirello: striptease the other way-round. Classical but also ironic Burlesque, with an element of surprise.
  • Bees and Flowers: a Burlesque performance by Baloon Dance where a mischievous bee buzzes and pricks two little flowers, but ... what goes round, comes round!

From 10.30pm there will be dancing and fun with DJ mix!
