Colors, ancient costumes, wigs, eccentric make up and most of all… masks! Carnival 2020 is in the air, and we’re here to tell you everything about this famous tradition, that for years has been part of our Venice and its shapes.
Venice is always a good choice, but even more for New Year’s Eve.
Despite the cold, humid weather, and the danger of high water, Venice can offer much during this period of the year: good food, nice parties, fireworks and arts. Continue reading “New Year’s Eve 2019/2020 in Venice”

A jump in the past… and it’s immediately carnival!
Entering the Hotel Danieli is always a thrill, because you wouldn’t expect that fairy-tale entrance looking at the small access door.
We are almost there, just a few days remain before one of the most important events in Venice: the Carnival.
Have you ever been in Venice during the Carnival? It is a very fun and amazing experience. The city is like a huge party, with people playing music on the “calli”, at the sides of the bridges, into the Bacari (as you know, they are a sort of small pub). Also, during Carnival, people wear amazing costumes (because during the Carnival you can be whoever you desire to be)… in other words… IT IS A BIG PARTY!
If you have chosen to spend your Christmas in Venice, well, you are lucky.
We have been in Venice these days and the atmosphere is magic, except for the freezing temperatures!
San Marco and all the other main streets are full of lights, colours and happiness. Continue reading “CHRISTMAS IN VENICE 2018”

Dear friends welcome back to our blog,
Venice is full of commonplaces: love, gondolas, Rialto and nice sunsets are the most abused stereotypes about this fantastic city. However, as Nancy Kress stated: “A stereotype may be negative or positive, but even positive stereotypes present two problems: They are cliches, and they present a human being as far more simple and uniform than any human being actually is”.

Did you know that 25 April in Venice is a particular day?
Venice is worldwide known as the city of lovers. That is not always true. Venice is a democratic city: it’s a city for workers, a city for artists, a city for students, for tourists and much more. It depends what are you looking for and, most of all, where you are looking at. Continue reading “25 APRIL IN VENICE”
