Book Now Inquire Booking

From EUR 29

In Venice, from the mid-fifteenth century, the nobles and the wealthy would walk preceded by a servant called "Codega" equipped with a lantern to light their path in the darkness of night, who would delight them with anecdotes and stories.

Today, your personal host will guide you through the maze of mystery that forms the city. A leap in the past which will inspire you to be the actors in a moving mise-en-scene and will push you to the heart of the Serenissima Republic and its Carnival.

This is the way to discover the city's secrets! You will learn about Casanova and the Levantine, about the gondolier that become a priest and about the elephant that found shelter in a church. You will discover why an angel was put as a palace guardian and why the bridge between two convents was called "The Devil's Bridge", but also the secret language of fans and the legends of a number of ghosts that are said to inhabit Venice today.

Through the stories of the “Codega” the visitors will be escorted to unusual and secret places, away from the chaotic hustle and bustle of Carnival, to find out some interesting facts of the history and daily life of the Serenissima Republic.

A captivating event for the entire family, a new and unusual way to live Venice Carnival!
