The celebration has officially started with the first Venetian Night, where a joyful procession of decorated boats, baloons and tricks of light have crossed the Canal Grande.

Colors, costumes, masks, cheerful processions of smiling people: that’s what you can see if you decide to visit Venice in these weeks.

Welcome to our new section dedicated to students, people who decided to move to Venice or tourists who might be interested in tasting what is like to study in the floating city!
