Reserve your stay at Hotel Danieli and experience the Venetian Carnival, an event that has for centuries illuminated the spirits of its participants, leaving them enchanted by all the charm, romance and mystery.
A VIP experience
During last year's Carnival, we were delighted to bring a once in a lifetime experience to two SPG members as they attended the most exclusive masquerade ball in the world, Il Ballo Del Doge. On the day of the ball, they attended their costume fitting appointments and selected beautiful outfits from the atelier of Antonia Sautter who created the ball. She has over 1,500 handmade creations to select from.
From the buzz of Carnival in the hotel lobby, they arrive to the event in style by boat to the majestic palace of Palazzo Pisani Morretta which has hosted the past 22 editions.

Cottilon Dance Lessons
To join in the dancing at the Carnival balls, Hotel Danieli organizes an afternoon with friends having fun learning the basic steps of group dances from the 1700s, for example minuets and cotillion, taught by our Dance teachers to the music of a trio of classical musicians.
Minuetto Dinner & Dance
During the period of Carnival, Hotel Danieli puts on a selection of events, one of which is a dinner in costume. A Dance Master with his partner will lead group dances throughout the evening and an opera singer will delight guests between the different dances.

The most highly anticipated event of Carnival, is Il Ballo Del Doge, created by Antonia Sautter and hosted in Palazzo Pisani Morretta. ABC Television has described the ball as one of the 10 things to do in one's lifetime.
