Celebrate Carnivale on the island city of Venice, Italy!
Venice is the original home of the pre-lent festivities of Carnivale, known in the states as Mardi Gras. While the season officially starts in November, the climax of the season is the week leading up to Fat Tuesday. With no tour guide or set schedule to follow, you will be able to explore this living museum however you see fit. Visit the glass museums on Murano, ride a water taxi or gondola in the Grand Canal, or shop on both sides of the Rialto Bridge. Regardless of what you plan for your day, make sure to add plenty of time at Saint Mark’s Square, where several Carnivale events will occur throughout the day in a blow-out blast to wrap up the last weekend before Mardi Gras and 40 days of sacrifice during Lent. You are even encouraged to bring your own costume and be part of the Best Masked Costume Contest at St. Mark’s Square.
