Take a unique tour of Venice with an actor guide and experience all the theater of the Venice Carnival. Hear stories about the city's historical "Codega" - servants who would light the way for the nobles and wealthy telling anecdotes along the way.


  • Experience this unusual itinerary in the heart of Venice
  • Hear interesting anecdotes narrated by a talented actor from the famous Pantakin Company
  • Enjoy the atmosphere of one of the world's most famous carnivals


Journey back in time to Venice from the middle of the 15th century, when the nobles and wealthy would be preceded by a servant called Codega who would be equipped with a lantern to light their path. Along the way, he would delight them with anecdotes and stories. Join an actor guide from the well-known Pantakin theater company to explore this tradition and discover a maze of mysteries about the Venetian lagoon. Take a leap into the past and get inspired by actors in a moving mise-en-scène that will transport you to the very heart of life in the Serenissima (Republic of Venice) and its carnival. Recreate the myths, legends and history of Venice and its carnival through the stories of the Codega: learn about the gondolier that became a priest, or about the elephant that found shelter in a church, or about Devil's Bridge. This is a captivating event for the entire family and a new and unusual way to discover Venice.
