Details

 

The world’s most elegant Carnival!

Socialites come out and play, disguised in 18th-century costumes, in a spectacle that transports visitors to an age of opulence. Venice Carnival is unapologetically upscale and thrives on it. The elaborate Carnival balls are among the world’s most elite parties and come with a high price tag, but the most alluring aspect of this festival is just wandering the labyrinthine island city of historic canals and alleyways filled with costumed revelers and soaking up the one-of-a-kind ambiance.

 

Events, Balls, Performances for More Than a Week

The main events of the Venice carnival are repeated every year, but these events dates are changing. A new carnival theme is announced each year. The carnival ends at Fat Tuesday, 40 days before Easter.
