CARNIVAL in VENICE!
One of the most celebrated festivals in all of Europe, Carnival has a been tradition for over 300 years. Masks were worn not only during festival but sometimes throughout the year to poke fun at politicians or worn by children to sneak into establishments that might have been off-limits. Carnival represents freedom, liberty and fantasy. During Carnival Venice is magical, full of fun and more!
Our five days in Venice begin early Thursday morning leaving Stuttgart for Italy. After a brief stop for lunch we will head to Venice and then hop the vaporetto(boat taxi) to our hotel, the Hotel Papadopoli in the San Croce neighborhood. This four-star hotel includes a lovely breakfast every day with elegant accommodations close to the canals.
Friday we will be taking a SECRET GARDEN tour finding hidden beautiful gardens behind convent and monastery walls of Venice. One of the most memorable tours I’ve been on these Master Gardeners of Italy share not only the origin and tradition of these holy gardens but also many, many more secrets of Venice. You’ll also enjoy some free time in the afternoon to begin discovering Venice on your own.
Carnival activities include the parade on Saturday and the famous Flight of the Angel ~ Sunday afternoon! Want to dress up – you are free to do that too ~
