Venice Carnival 2018

Quiet during the winter months, Venice comes alive during the Carnival, the annual festival with the Christian celebration of Lent, forty days before Easter.
 
The tradition of the Venice Carnival boasts ancient origins and, whist it is not comparable to what might have been in the 17th century, today the festival attracts crowds of curious people from around the world which transform the town with theatrical joy and playfulness, historical masks and dresses. For two weeks Venice looks at the past decadence celebrating with dances, public events, private parties, exclusive galas and romantic encounters.
