Kath and I arrived in Venice just in time for Carnevale. The place gets packed and people come from all around the world to attend this old traditional event on the Venice calendar.
Dating back to medieval times when discretion warranted the wearing of masks(dont get caught with your mistress), today, carnivale continues. The main events take place in St. Mark's Square but dont go if you dont like crowds. Venice is like a beehive.

Address: St. Mark's Square (Piazza San Marco)
Directions: Piazza San Marco, Venezia, Italy
