Venice masked balls and costumes


For every Venice Carnival event you must pay attention to the dress code indicated. Venice masked balls organized in Venetian palaces normally require historical costumes and Venetian masks, which can be included or not in your ticket.

Venetian costumes are those that are seen parading during the Carnival in St. Mark's Square and of which visitors take thousands of photos. These costumes are easily rented in Venice, but you have to organize yourself in advance.

They are very popular for Carnival events and if you arrive too late, choice will be really reduced. At the end of this page you will find a link to our dedicated section. Some masquerade balls include an easier dress code for the entrance, for example after dinner, with elegant dress and mask.

As a rule, this is a themed evening, and to participate you will have to follow the dress code announced at the time of booking. The program includes various artistic performances, cocktails, dinner and finally an "after dinner party" with music.
