Dinner and masked ball in the most famous hotel in Venice!

Five magical evenings to soak in the Venice Carnival atmosphere at 360° and relive the magic of the past ... Minuetto - Dinner with masked dances is considered one of the flagship events of the Carnival of Venice; hosted in one of the most beautiful halls of the Hotel Danieli, this original masked dinner will offer an unforgettable experience. 

The Hotel Danieli, historic hotel in Venice overlooking St. Mark's Basin, provides the perfect setting to recreate the elegant and sophisticated atmosphere of the golden age of Venice, when the Carnival lasted about six months and celebrations and transgression were common place... Minuetto - Dinner with masked dances provides five appointments for the Carnival 2018: Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 February and, to follow, Friday 1, Saturday 2 and Monday 4 March. Choose the date and book your place for one of the most elegant masked balls of Venice! 

Enjoy seated dinner, with a set menu designed by the chef of the Hotel Danieli specifically for the evening, while a baroque ensemble will play live minuets and quadrilles. An expert dance teacher and his partner will involve guests in fun group dances to be held during the dinner and until the end of the evening.

Before booking, remember that access to the event is only open to guests wearing a historical costume! At the Hotel Danieli there is also a workshop of vintage clothes: you can book the costume conveniently online along with the event, choose your dress and wear it on the day for the dinner. L'Atelier Tiepolo is one of the most prestigious in Venice, and it has over three hundred costumes and accessories from the 18th to the 19th century; with special prices for those who want to book online costume hire for Venetian masquerade balls + Minuetto on 4 March.

'Excellent Event'

We specifically booked this Carnevale masquerade as it seemed to offer a more authentic experience and especially due to it's dance instruction. The event really delivered, teaching one or two dances in between each course of the meal. They also arranged seating by language, allowing us to converse with our group throughout the night. Additionally, live music and vocals were present throughout dining, even outside of dancing.


Dance instruction Seating arranged by language Delicious food Live music Required costuming for authentic experience


Event skewed a little older, would have liked to be seated with people our age as well. While the venue was easy to find, the room within the hotel was more difficult to find. The dining space was separate from the music/dancing, and would have been better to be in a larger open room to see it all.

'Gran ballo'

Bella festa in maschera, molto scenica e divertente. Cucina all'altezza, livello dei vini da migliorare, abbinamenti sufficienti ma visto il livello e la location mi aspettavo di più
