    The Venice Carnival began in the 12th Century and takes place each February, and is undoubtedly the highlight of Venice's year. St Mark's Square, the theatres and even the famous canals burst into life with musical, theatrical, acrobatic and dance performances. Glamorous masks and costumes add to the magical and mysterious atmosphere, helping make Venice Carnival one of the most celebrated and fascinating events in Europe!

    What happens?

    The Carnival is a two-week series of processions, masquerades, traditional ceremonies, music and all-round festivities among the canals, squares and palaces of Venice. There are dozens of masked balls, brunches in period costume and gala dinners to attend. The whole city is filled with musicians, acrobats, theatre troupes and revellers from all over the world.

    Think you know Venice? Well you don't know it completely until you visit during Carnival! See an amazing side to this very special Italian city and share it with your fellow Topdeck companions.
