VENICE CARNIVAL

VENICE CARNIVAL

If you hear someone talk about carnivals in Europe, what would be your first association to it?

Most probably it must be the annually Venice Carnival.

HISTORY OF VENICE CARNIVAL

The starting point of this journey takes us back to history. Firstly held in the 11th century, this carnival quickly became the famous symbol of the “floating” city. It was even stopped in the 18th century, but again brought to life in 1979.

Today, probably everyone in the world have heard about the event, and it launched Venice even higher on the list of must see destinations not only in Italy, but in whole Europe, if not the World.

Earlier, the carnival always began with balls that were held at St Mark’s Square and followed with the fun found in the whole city, when people of the certain social statuses wore masks and costumes, and very often – many of them were connected to the famous Commedie del’Arte or Columbine.

Well, it’s still like that and even better.

 

MASKS AND COSTUMES

If you’re planning to visit Venice during the carnival, there are two things you must have. We’re, of course, talking about masks and costumes.

There are plenty of tailors in the city that can make a wide range of handmade carnival costumes, and there are the ones made from luxury materials to really affordable ones.

Besides it, it’s not so important what your mask or costume will look like; it’s even more your enthusiasm that will ensure you a great time at Venice Carnival.

USEFUL INFORMATION

Here are some facts of the carnival that you might be interested in:

  • All key carnival events usually takes place in the Arsenale (the city’s historic shipyard),
  • If you’re more for a non-Venetian style carnival, there’s a zombie walk that takes place at the end of the carnival,
  • The best place to see the carnival is definitely St Mark’s Square – the place with best costumes – perfect for making great photos,
  • There is no extra charge for going to the Venice Carnival, but some parties can be quite expensive.
