A CARNIVALESQUE SUNDAY IN VENICE

Venice is always amazing, but during Carnival it’s just something that is worthy seeing at least one time in life.

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.
