Venice and Carnevale are made for each other …
Venice Carnival is a celebration about history, art, music, theater and of course drama. Thousands of people travel from all the world just to attend or perform in the Venetian Carnival.
Revelers with traditional costumes (or not) and wearing venetian carnival masks are almost everywhere, on every corner, in all piazzetas and campos.
Venezia, “La Serenissima”, is a unique city, situated on 120 islands formed by 180 canals. While there are many festivities in other Italian cities, there could be no better place for the Carnival, than the land that gave us Casanova and Vivaldi.
The official date for Venice Carnival 2011 is from February 26 to March 8.
