VENICE & THE CARNAVALE

February 24, 2019

I love Venice.

I love Venice at Carnavale.

I want you to love it as much as I do.

Sharing some of my experiences may help

even though the Carnavale has already begun,

but it runs to March 5th so there's still time to see lots of it. 

I've been fortunate enough to have taken some groups there

during the Carnavale and we had a ball.

I love it most when there's a misty morning and San Marco is quiet.  

Aside from the different private events, there's still a lot to enjoy...

and most of it begins in San Marco Square...

 ...and some of it continues into the cafes.

(that's me on the right with the tie)

There are still events available until March 5th, the final day of Carnavale.

The Ca’ Vendramin Calergi Palazzo, on the Grand Canal, 

hosts the Official Dinner, Show and Ball every night.

There are still others,

including the Venetian Style Carnival Pub Crawl.

Check it out.

What about hotels?

If you prefer being near the madness of San Marco Square, definitely try  the Bauer Palazzo, my favorite hotel.

It's always my first choice and I always had my favorite room.

overlooking the Grand Canal

and the Church of Santa Maria della Salute.

Then there's the Danieli,

known worldwide for its magnificent entrance hall staircase.

 There are others,

including the San Clemente, the Des Bains and the Excelsior,

just to name a few, but they're closed for the winter.

So, as the sun slowing rises over Venice's Grand Canal,

it's time for me to pause for a while.

For you first timers,

I hope I've whetted your appetite for Venice.

For those of you who have already visited Venice,

let me take you to corner's that are unknown and unexplored by you.

In other words, let me show you the Venice I love.
