Jan/Feb: Venice Carnival’s Balls

Il Ballo del Doge

In the past, Venice Carnival's balls were organised by the Doges or the city’s noble families to entertain their guests, while today they have become an opulent means of celebration for Venetians and an almost irresistible attraction for tourists. Although different versions exist, one rule applies to all of them: wearing a costume is compulsory.
