Venice Sightseeing & Carnival Time Magic

Stay at a palatial hotel in the historic heart of Venice & find enchantment as you tour the city on foot & by gondola — then, celebrate “Carnevale di Venezia” at your own pace with events happening throughout the city on this Platinum DreamTrip. 

About Your Trip

Step back in time and immerse yourself in the epic grandeur and remarkable history of Venice with this adults-only Platinum DreamTrip that’s not to be missed. The best part? Your adventure falls right in the middle of “Carnevale di Venezia” (Carnival), an exciting annual celebration boasting elaborate masks and costumes, parades, street parties, lavish masquerade balls, incredible food, live music and much merriment. Many events are free — the Festa delle Mari Parade along Via Garabaldi and the Maestre Carnival Street Show at Piazza Ferretto among them — so you can get out and party like a local while seeing a whole new side of this unforgettable City of Water.

But first, you’ll experience the ultimate in luxury with a stay at multi-award-winning Hotel Danieli. From the moment you step into the hotel’s opulent lobby, you’ll get a sense of the rich history within its 14th-century palace walls. Marvel at the golden staircase, vaulted ceiling, antique furniture and precious artwork — sophisticated surroundings that reflect a timeless elegance. No wonder this incredible property is part of Virtuoso, the global luxury network of leisure travel advisors.

From these upscale lodgings, you’ll explore city highlights with a fun and fascinating walking tour — Venice’s compact size and pedestrian-only layout makes it easy to get around by foot. See the house of legendary explorer Marco Polo as well as a lively city square before venturing to Piazza San Marco and Basilica Cattedrale Patriarcale di San Marco. After lunch, you’ll learn about glass blowing — an art form that goes back 700 years — then end your tour with a gondola ride, a popular bucket-list way to see the sights.

The rest of the time is yours, so you can do whatever you’d like. With Carnival in full swing, you’ll have plenty of activities and experiences to try. Why not buy a mask or a costume and stroll over to Piazza San Marco to join in on all the Carnival revelry and fun?

What we love:
• Venice Carnival was celebrated for centuries as a time to let loose behind the anonymity of masks and costumes. Today, this pre-Lenten festival is far more family-friendly, featuring parades, street parties, comedy shows, historical re-enactments and activities for all ages.
• Fourteenth-century Palazzo Dandolo was converted into Hotel Danieli in 1822. Later, in 1906, the adjoining 19th-century Palazzo Casa Nuova palace was added, followed by Palazzo Danieli Excelsior in 1940 to create the stunning heritage property we know today.
• You’ll see for yourself why readers of Conde Nast Traveler have named your hotel No. 1 in the “Top Hotels in Venice” category. Aside from a luxurious atmosphere — with art that includes a Murano glass chandelier and a ceiling fresco by Venetian painter Jacopo Guarana — guests can expect impeccable, personalized service and indulgent access to authentic cultural experiences.

Destination

Aptly nicknamed "City of Water," Venice is comprised of more than 100 tiny islands bordered with canals and connected by bridges. The largest of these, including the Bridge of Sighs and Rialto Bridge, were designed by skilled architects in the 16th century and attract thousands of sightseers each day. Venice and its lagoons are designed a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Aside from its world-renowned waterways, Venice is famous for its art and culture, and its long-standing tradition of elaborate glassblowing dating back to the 13th century. Venetians and visitors alike appreciate fresh seafood dishes crafted by seasoned local chefs, showcasing the abundance of specialty produce and fish found in the Adriatic Sea. Look for the spires of iconic gondolas as they wind through the intricate canal network, showing its passengers the “City of Water” from the water itself. Most visited attractions include the magnificent Saint Mark’s Basilica cathedral, the Doge’s Palace museum and the Gallerie dell’Accademia, which houses Venetian painting masterpieces.
