The Carnival of Venice 2014 will be an amazing time and, therefore, very intense and out of ordinary!

The program is full of shows at the Grand Theatre of Piazza San Marco, with distinction between the lodges and the parterre.
From there, you will be able to attend the election of the most beautiful handmade mask, the Flight of the Angel, the performances of acrobats, musicians, dancers, singers and actors.
The experience of the Grand Theatre becomes very special booking the heated lodges, where you will enjoy an excellent view, and where you will also be given the opportunity, if you’d like, to taste the cuisine of the Veneto through the specially designed menus for the Carnival.
If you love walking and feeling the misterious atmosphere of the ancient cities, there is also the opportunity to listen to the stories told by the codega, which were the servants who accompanied their masters around the city, entertaining them with curious stories.
This will be the traveling show that will lead you in the labyrinth of streets and canals all around Venice, you can speak directly with various famous personalities coming from the past and know the venetian deep mysteries and legends, collected over the years from a famous author: Alberto Toso Fei.
