08 February – 25 February 2020
Welcome to the Venice Carneval! A traditional and evocative event in the heart of Venice. We will wait for you from 08 February to 25 February 2020!
Eighteen solid days of costumed chaos awaits during the Carnival of Venice, an annual event that combines the proper traditions of baroque dress with the inherent nuttiness of Brazil’s own Carnival celebrations. Free-to-attend and attracting upwards of three million people every year, Carnival of Venice sees the streets awash in stunning costumed-revelers, and begins with a large procession through the city called La Festa delle Marie.
“It was first held in Venice in the 11th century and consisted of over two months of revelry, until it fell into decline during the 18th century.
It was revived in 1979 with great success and nowadays it is a great excuse to dress in a mask and costume, parade around the city, enjoy the live music in the main squares of the city, the events organised by the tourist board and is a wonderful open-air festival where everyone can join in.”
Fantastic costumes are displayed in St Mark’s Square and Venice is the perfect back-drop for amazing photographs.”
