This morning attend your costume fitting appointment with the Atelier.

These fittings are limited to 4 people at any one time to ensure you have a high level of personal service and feel truly special.

Once dressed like a Venetian noble, do as the locals do and promenade around Venice in your historical costume. This really is a highlight as Venice becomes alive with colour and style as everyone in their masked finery takes to the streets. Enjoy the tourists taking photos of you looking your best. Whilst promenading, why not treat yourself to a glass of Champagne at Westin Europa & Regina or at The Monaco, both overlooking the Grand Canal.

Evening at leisure. Alternatively, why not add in our Optional Extra Gourmet Tasting Dinner. Get to sample Michelin Starred traditional Venetian cuisine at The Met Restaurant, Hotel Metropole. See Optional Extra below for more information.

Reviews & Feedback

Testimonials

We had a fantastic time. The hotel was superb and the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. The ball was wonderful, really enjoyable. We got stopped several times by locals complimenting me on the outfit as well as by all the camera happy tourists. Thanks for all your help and you can be sure we would recommend Weekend a la Carte to friends.

Dawn

We had a wonderful weekend and thought the overall organisation was excellent. So much so that we would be interested in returning another year. The various elements of the package came together perfectly and the food and accommodation were excellent. Thank you to everyone involved.
