They used to be masked in order to hide their identities and feel free. You will try the same authentic experience!

The event starts at 8.00 pm with a aperitif and will be followed by a rich dinner with 4 courses and locals wines (included). A delicious dessert will be composed by typical Venetian cookies: “Galani” and  Carnival sweet pancakes.

Carnival Minuet Ball at Ridotto

Carnival Minuet Ball at Ridotto

The hall of the Ridotto has an extraordinary rich history. It was the first place in Venice and in the world to accomodate  gambling rooms openly. The young Casanova danced here and used this breath-taking place as a set for his conquests. After the second world war this space becomes the first dancing hall in Venice and after that an important theater.  Nowadays, the Ridotto Hall where the Carnival Ball will take place belongs to the Hotel Monaco & Grand Canal Hotel and gives you a stunning view on the Grand Canal.

What do you have to expect from the soiree
