Are you considering if Venice during the Carnival is worth a visit?

Surely it can be really tiresome! It's crowded, even more crowded than it usually is. And dirty and chaotic and noisy.

But there's a strange feeling in the air, the partying atmosphere is everywhere. You can feel it as soon as you get off the train. 

From the train station to St. Mark's square it's about one hour walk, but you don't have to walk much before you meet the first beautiful masks.

The "calle", streets, of Venice are crowded everywhere and this makes the walk even more enjoyable.

Walking around Venice is one of the most beautiful experiences you can have. Its original architecture and atmosphere enchants everyone.

All the while you can have an aperitif or something to eat.

Getting to St. Mark's Square is not difficult even if you have never been there: the direction is showed everywhere and anyway you can just follow the flow. 

 

Finally you get to St. Mark's Square, where the Best Mask Competition is taking place. The Carnival in Venice lasts about three weeks and the calendar is full of events.

 

Once you are here you can just look at the beautiful masks and costumes that walk around the square. People are used to it and are just happy to be subject of continuous pictures shooting.
