CARNIVAL OF VENICE
The Carnival of Venice, one of the most famous in the world, always starts 10 days before Ash Wednesday and it is during this period that the city of Venice best expresses its nature: theatrical scenes dedicated to parties, extravagance and transgression. The charm of the Venice Carnival undoubtedly comes from the traditional, highly refined costumes that transport visitors back in time. The magic of the carnival is further enhanced by the mysterious masks that cover the faces, giving free rein to the imagination.
