Venice Carnival is one of the most typical and spectacular celebrations of the lagoon city, a time when the magnificent costumes, traditions and celebrations pour onto every street and canal of the historic centre of Venice.
Venice Carnival attracts tens of thousands of people each year to the lagoon city, including Venetians, tourists and visitors who want to take part in this traditional event. The whole city is full of people and life, and as expected, parking in Venice becomes an almost impossible mission.
This year the events for the celebration of Venice Carnival will begin on 27th January 2018, with the Festa Veneziana sull'acqua (Venice Festival on water), while the traditional Festa delle Marie will take place on 3rd February 2018. Venice Carnival ends on Shrove Tuesday, 13th February 2018, with the Svolo del Leon (the flight of the lion).

If there is a time of year when the city of Venice is even more worth visiting, it is undoubtedly for the Carnival. The lagoon city hosts one of the oldest and most fun celebrations of these holidays, which attracts thousands of tourists every year.
Venice Carnival has a very ancient origin, which still conserves customs and traditions that go back to the year 1000. The use of masks means getting rid of any kind of differentiation between citizens, since by hiding their identity it was possible that they were all equal and were at the same social level. Even today in the streets and alleys of the city thousands of people gather, all masked, while all through Venice parades of floats and parties take place.
Two of the most classic and ancient celebrations of the Venice Carnival are the Festa delle Marie and the Volo dell'Angelo (flight of the angel). The latter opens the carnival celebrations, with the participation of some famous people who, thanks to a metal cable, fly over Piazza San Marco, the heart of Venice, from the bell tower of the Basilica di San Marco, to the Palazzo Ducale (Ducal Palace).
