Costume Fitting and Gourmet Tasting Dinner

DAY 2: 2 March 2019
Costume Fitting and Gourmet Tasting Dinner

This morning you have an appointment at the Atelier for your costume fitting. Having pre-selected your costume prior to arrival via an online catalogue, this appointment is to ensure it is comfortable and fits well.

Only 4 people can be fitted at any one time so this is a very personal and enjoyable moment, ensuring everything is perfect. We recommend you take a bag with you, as once you have donned your beautiful outfits, you will not want to change back!

Spend the morning promenading around Venice in your costume, soaking up the atmosphere. We recommend you stop for lunch whilst in costume and if the weather is good, sit on a terrace overlooking the Grand Canal and savour the atmosphere.

Alternatively, head to Cafe Florian for the best cappucino in town and the place to be seen. But be warned – quite a few tourists will want to take your photo!

This evening we have laid on a very special gourmet tasting dinner taking place at The Met, conveniently located in Hotel Metropole. The Michelin Starred chef will prepare a selection of traditional Venetian dishes cooked using local ingredients. There are two menus – we recommend you order one of each and sample them both!

Reviews & Feedback

Reviews & Feedback

We had never been to Venice before, and we had a really wonderful time. Everything worked like clockwork. The costumes that were hired were excellent – the people at Tragicomica couldn’t have been more helpful. The Mascheranda Ball was good. We had such a good time I would really like to go back to next year’s Carnival! Thank you to everyone for organising this for us.

Tracey

We had the most fabulous time of our lives felt like movie stars, the hotel was fabulous. The Ball was FABULOUS. Words will never express what a wonderful experience carnival is, a real once in a life time opportunity and Weekend A la Carte made it special. Once again thank you and we hope to travel with you again someday.
