Italian Carnevale

Italian Carnevale

Though Venice’s world-famous carnival festival receives the most attention, it’s not the only carnival celebration in Italy.

Most of the major festivities for this quintessential Italian festival come alive on the weekends, especially the final weekend of the celebration.

Farther south, Viareggio has wonderful Carnevale celebrations each Sunday during February with massive man-made floats.

Finally, on February 28th you can go to celebrate Carnevale in Ivrea, a small town in Piedmont whose carnival celebrations conclude with a massive food fight with – brace yourself – oranges.
