Carnival 2016 (January 23 to February 9)
The Carnival of Venice is one of the best known and most popular carnivals in the world. Its origins are ancient: the first evidence dates back to a document of Doge Vitale Falier of 1094, which speaks of public entertainment and in which the word Carnival was mentioned for the first time. The citizens were wearing masks and costumes, so it was possible to completely conceal their identity and annulled in this way any form of personal belonging to a social class, sex, religion. Everyone could determine attitudes and behaviors based on new costumes and the changed appearance. As in the past, today the Carnival of Venice is a great festival for a wide audience of all ages. Parties on the square and events of all kinds animate the days of groups of masks and tourists who happily develop throughout around the city. In addition to the official holidays of the square between streets and squares, today as in the past are organized various private parties and masked balls at the great Venetian palaces. In these places, rich furnishings and atmosphere almost unchanged over time, you can relive the ancient splendor and tradition of Carnival of the past. For a full schedule of events click here.
