Chocolate fountain & live entertainment. A “Chocolate Afternoon” but also a ball!



 The Afternoon Ball takes place in the Sansovino salon of Palazzo Ca’ Pesaro Papafava, an authentic XVth century palace with an exclusive water entrance. And will be characterized by the hot chocolate – “Afternoon Chocolate” is an ancient custom of the Venetian nobility, dating back to the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.

A chocolate fountain surrounded by a buffet of deliciously decadent Carnival sweets is the centerpiece, accompanied by hot chocolate and the Venetian bubbly “Prosecco” as a soprano sings arias of love and masters of dance introduce guests to the Minuet, Gavotte and Jigs and offer instruction in the ballrooms of the ancient palace.
