News and What's On in Venice

If you're looking to take a trip to Venice for the world famous Carnevale this year then bad news - you've missed it! One of the biggest events in the Venetian calendar, Carnevale was, as always, a great success enjoyed by all here in the floating city. Carnevale takes place every year on Shrove Tuesday (also known as Fat Tuesday) - you know, the start of Lent, Mardi Gras, one last day of debauchery before you abstain from your chosen vice till Easter. Well anyway, if you want to come next year, book early. Fear not however, there still remains the revelries of Summer when the city comes alive from it's winter slumber, so use it as a warm up for Carnevale...!

Elton John and Anastacia are among the international musical acts visiting Venice between now and the autumn time, while the Venice performing arts scene is about to go in full swing with no shortage of ballet and opera to keep you entertained. Check out our what's on page for a more comprehensive breakdown.

In the news this month, Venice is banning the larger cruise ships from its waters to help protect the island from floods.
