The Carnival celebrations last ten days and begin 10 days before the Tuesday of Carnival. Carnival is a festival in the Veneto but no doubt the activities that take place in Venice are the most famous.
Originally, Carnival lasted two months and it was the time when everything was allowed. The celebrations were masked to avoid consequences. Decayed much in the eighteenth century, but it will eventually regained his favor.
Masks and disguises play a key role in this anonymous world, class divisions disappear, all are equal because they barely knows who is behind the mask. The participants take the opportunity to parade through the streets and making jokes.
You need to book well in advance as in the months before the Carnival rooms are full!
