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.
