Venice Marco Polo Airport
The carnival in Venice has been capturing people’s imagination since the 14th Century. There is something alien and fascinating about the masked city. It is as much scary as liberating, and the Venetians are simply the best at it!
Outlandish costumes, dazzling masks, rainbow of colours, this simply must be on your bucket lists. I know it has been on mine for as long as I can remember. So let’s stop waiting for the life to happen and just do it! Whether you want to party or just wander through the crowds and take photos, we will make sure we have enough time for both.

The big event of the weekend – an exclusive evening on board of the Venetian Galleon
A not-to-be-missed appointment for an exclusive evening on board the Venetian Galleon during Carnival: a unique occasion to live the craziest night of the year in the charming and fascinating atmosphere of a boat of other times.
Please let us know if you are vegetarian.
After a toast with the crew on board, the Galleon will slowly start sailing towards the north part of the lagoon sailing along the islands of Murano, Burano, Torcello and offering a charming panoramic view while on board you can taste the Great Carnival buffet with all the specialties prepared with care by our Chef on board.
We will sail towards Sant’Erasmo and San Francesco del Deserto, two small and enchanting islands where time seems to have stopped, and then we will head towards Venice where, once finished dinner, we will stop for a nice promenade in Saint Mark’s square where you will be captured by the elegant magic of the most ancient Carnival of the world.
Once again on board, we will continue the party with carnival trumpets, frittelle, streamers, confetti, galani and a lot of fun until the moment of disembarkation.
