Venice Carnival 2019
On February 16th the 2019 Venice Carnival will start. It's the most anticipated event of the year and it gives Venice an atmosphere that's even more magic.
It will last until March 5th, the day of the Grand Finale in San Marco's square, with the prize-giving for the best-mask contest of Venice 2019 Carnival.
The whole city of Venice will burst with events and entertainment. The festivity will start in Cannaregio, on the evening of February 16th, with a dreamy show on water which you can enjoy from the canal's shore. On the morning of the 17th you can witness the incredible regatta in disguise, led by a huge rat, which will cross the Canal Grande and will reach Cannaregio. In Rialto, at the fish market, the Rialto Carnival will offer entertainment for children and grown-ups, with music, theater and dancing. You also can't miss the Festa delle Marie, on February 23rd: a historical reenactment in disguise, with a parade that will start from Via Garibaldi and,along the panoramic walk of the Riva degli Schiavoni, will end up in San Marco's square.
On Sunday 24th there's the breathtaking “Angel's flight” in San Marco's square: a girl, dressed up in historical fashion, will come down from the church's steeple. The same thing will happen on March 3rd with the “Eagle's flight”.
Venice Carnival also means masked balls: in the wonderful setting of the city's ancient palaces, you will be enchanted by the dinner, the music and the entertainment. Reservation is mandatory, as is the mask which you can rent in one of Venice's ateliers.
