Did you know the Venice carnival has just started?!
That’s a magic period of the year to be there…plenty of things to do such as theatre, concerts and music in many squares.
Just bring with you a nice mask and let the carnival spirit drive you into a wonderland made of misterious and extravagant Venetian masquerades such as halequins, ladies with colourfull costumes decorated with enbroidery or feathers and other fantacy creatures. The nicest thing is to get lost in one of the little calles and meet someone who invites you to join a party or a concert…
It would be perfect to arrange a wedding during this period of the year, the only two thing I can think of are the cost of accomodations and flights (it’s high season) and the amount of people around – if you are looking for an intimate wedding it might not be the right time of the year (unless you stay during the week, avoiding the crowd of tourist which is tipical during the Carnival week ends).
A part from this, it’s a great time! And don’t forget to bring a mask…
