Temptation Dinner Show February 7th-8th and 12th-17th

The exclusive and official gala dinner at the Arsenal during the 2015 Venice Carnival

During Carnival time in Venice, the Arsenal becomes a place full of TEMPTATION. With a small key you can open the door to your desires, and help your fantasies come to life within the magical “Torre di Porta Nuova” framework, where you will be enthralled by a dining experience.

Cross the threshold and we'll give you the key

Temptation isn't only a dinner. It's an exclusive experience where the pleasures of tastebuds and soul meet.

The rich menu carefully prepared by Venetian chef - Antonio Vianello, exciting shows by extraordinary international Nu'Art performers, the elegance of the magic “Torre di Porta Nuova” location; all these are the special ingredients of an extraordinarily unique recipe leading guests to another dimension.

Overwhelmed by images, colours, sounds and flavours to discover another Venice... a unique and tempting Venice.

A magical evening, with entertainment among the tables and performances all night long, aerial acrobatics and purposefully prepared scenery. Like food, a performance is above all, inspiration and pleasure. The body is the expression and art is the instrument. Then it's up to you to take advantage of a menu that is full of flavour and passion.
