Carnival of Venice


Get your masks ready, the annual Carnival starts January 27th 2018. It is possibly the most magical and surreal all the annual world festivals as the streets of Venice fill with masked party goers strutting and philandering.   

The Carnival started way back in 1162 following the victory of Serenissima Republica against the Patriarch of Aquileia as people started to dance in San Marco Square in celebration.
