Carnevale di Venezia, Venice, Italy

Carnevale di Venezia

Who is that behind the mask ? Or better yet, who are you wearing the mask? Who will you become? What is your fantasy? These are questions you'll be asking yourself during the weeks before Ash Wednesday, when Venice cloaks itself in a veil of mystery welcoming the Carnevale di Venezia (Carnival of Venice) , 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.
