Venice Carnival Costume Rental: how much does it cost?

Obviously … it depends! We need to stress that Venetian costumes have little to do with the average carnival costumes that you can purchase online for a few dozen euro. These handmade products are created in the ateliers of Venice with beautiful hard wearing materials. They are unique pieces and are rich in refined details faithful to the 18th century period. These are very special costumes that represent an ancient Venetian tradition, and their design has been researched and studied by the artisans.

To give you an idea of price range for a 24-hour rental: the price varies from 180 to 400 euro. For particularly elaborate models, prices can be higher.

18th-century Venice, with Casanova and the likes telling stories of stunning parties happening at the time, has always inspired artists, artisans, creatives and lovers of beauty and splendour. Even today, tailoring makes Venice famous all over the world. Venice is a veritable capital of vintage fashion.
