You can, because we can show you how, spend a great time being a part of this great event and not to spend too much.

The Venice 2016 Carnival (the Carnevale) will take place from January 23 - February 9. During the Carnival (Carnevale), this most magical of cities fills with a mass of masked party-goers - posing and preening, dancing and philandering, eating and drinking and ofcourse - photographing!

Click and post it on our Facebook...Or somewhere. Eather way, you can send photos to us and we will spread the word. In this case, photos.

If you want to feel real Venice carnival soul, aim for the weekends, and the final weekend in particular February 9.

Under the masks or not, you just can`t not love the Venice. But be aware, on this part of the year, prices are high into sky. But don`t escape from romantic Venice just because of it. You can, because we can show you how, spend a great time being a part of this great event and not to spend too much. Do not eat or drink in St Mark’s square, just walk a little further and you will find much cheaper prices. If you don`t have money to eat in the restaurant, find some local stores where you can buy a pizza cut, sandwich, fruit or some other bites to go.

Where and what

The Volo dell’Angelo ("flight of the angel"), when a beauty pageant winner gets to ride a zipwire from the campanile in St Mark’s square, takes place on January 31.The search for the year’s best costume is the chance to strut your finery on the stage erected in St Mark’s square. A day’s best and a festival finest competition run side-by-side, with twice-a-day heats; the grand finale for the festival best takes place on February 9.

Key Carnival events will also take place inside the Arsenale, Venice’s magnificent if under-used historic shipyard. In a half-way-house between a son e lumière and a strobe-swept disco, the huge spaces will play host to water-borne pageants, re-enactments, street artists and bands. It will also host events for the the Kids' Carnival.
