The Carneval of Venice


The Carneval of Venice  is one of the oldest events of the Serenissima Republic of Venice, evidence of which can be found in a document by Doge Vitale Falier dated 1094.

It was a moment of leisure and lightheartedness granted by the Venetian authorities to the people, especially to those of the poorer classes,

Masks and costumes ensured anonymity and therefore freedom from social status and even the mockery of public office was accepted.

For a few days, the Carnival represented an excellent way out from a condition of moral repression and public order under which the Republic of Venice held its citizens.

In our modern times, the Venice Carnival usually takes place from the end of January until the period of Lent.


During Carnival, you will find parties and music in the many small squares around the city (campi) and, of course, in the most important square of Venice, Piazza San Marco. Many historic buildings will also become home to very elegant private parties.

The typical mask of the Venice Carnival is the “Bauta”, all white, was traditionally worn by both men and women combined with a black hat called “Tricorn “and a long cloak called “Tabarro”.

Many make-up artists, scattered around the streets of the city, will transform your appearance in a few moments.


From entertainment we move on to the art of eating, naming some of the most traditional Venetian dishes:

  • sarde in soor (sardines in a sweet and sour marinade)
  • risi e bisi (rice and peas)
  • baccala` mantecato (creamed cod)
  • fegato alla veneziana (Venetian-style liver)


Ca’ Sant’ Angelo Apartments is the perfect accommodation for your stay during the Carnival festival. Thanks to our central location and the typical atmosphere of a traditional Venetian palazzo, our visitors can be truly taken back to the Venice of the 14th century.
