This is one of my favorite posts! I feel like I'm right there with you...and the photos are just too beautiful - thank you so much for sharing this day with us.


FANTASTIC photos! How fun to see those gorgeous costumes. You're so brave heading out there in the frigid temperatures, and I'm glad you had such deliciousness to warm you up. :-) I'd have to go for the cream-filled ones too. :-)


I agree! Marvelous photos ... know how drool over costumes .... the "orange & black" set in the middle is my favorite so far, but they're all gorgeous.
I think it's interesting that "the costumed" ones go out in the morning for photos. I would have expected them to be the ones partying all night (maybe they just never went to bed, so that's why they're out early). Can't wait to see night-time photos, too!!


prior comment should read ... "you know how I drool over costumes"


Great photographs. This has always been one of my dreams to attend Carnivale in Venice. I look forward to your posts.

Wow, I don't know what I love more, the food or the masks? Absolutely fabulous!!!


Those fritelle look absolutely irresistible. Almost feel sorry for the masked people with their sealed lips.


Great photos. Looking forward to seeing all of them! It can be exciting for those people wearing these carnival costumes to take so many photos of them. :)


Wow!!! I am so jealous! I have always wanted to go to Carnevale in Venice. In fact, we almost went this year - it had been a strong possibility! But...at least I can relive it from your pictures! Are you planning on going in costume at night? I can't wait to hear all about your experiences!!! And good to know that photo ops are everywhere! What fun!


Really lovely! Thanks for taking us there!


This post is wonderful The pictures are fantastic and I wish I was there enjoying the Fritelle and hot chocolate.

Hi Kathy,
I'm baaaack! Sorry for being MIA at your blog...life happened...lol! Anyway, great set of photos! I've never been to a Carnavale and I'm so envious looking at travellers' photos from Carnivals around the word!

Excellent photos! I can't believe that you're actually there for carnevale! Of course, I'm there with you since I fitted snug in that excess luggage of yours ;)

Have a fabulous time!


Thank you everyone for all the great comments and compliments. I'll have a slide show of all the amazing photos I've taken. I had my last two frittelle this morning, and I'm ready for my Lenten fast......however I have more eating to do as I travel on in Italy.

Esme - Even though the weather is unpredictable and not sunny and warm, I would HIGHLY recommend coming to Venice for Carnival at least once.


Amazing pics,
I can't believe this pics.
Thanks for sharing...
