    Default Carnival season 2019

    I know it is early to be asking, but does anyone know when special carnival celebrations occur? Maybe some more information on what to take in would also be nice.
    Thanks

    Default Carnevale

    Buongiorno,

    OMGoodness, is it a bit early! The Italians are still trying plan their summer vacations

    In any case, these two articles may give you a bit more info on what it is all about here in Tuscany, especially the famous display in Viareggio:

    https://www.discovertuscany.com/tusc...-carnival.html
    https://www.discovertuscany.com/tusc...n-tuscany.html

    On August 19th, will be the presentation of the designs for the floats -

    and they have already come out with the dates for masked competition: (however, other dates will follow)

    Saturday 9 - Sunday 17 - Saturday 23 February - Sunday 3 and Tuesday 5 March. In two years, however, they will be: Saturday 1 - Sunday 9 - Saturday 15 - Sunday 23 and Tuesday 25 February.

    Hope this is a start,

    Buon Viaggio,

    Donna Denise

    Default Carnival in March

    Will there be anything pertaining to Carnival after March 7? We are in Montecatini until March 12th. So sad we will be just missing the parades.

    Unfortunately, no..... Fat Tuesday is March 5, Ash Wednesday the day after and then you enter Lent period so the last Carnival parades are all on March 5. You will miss them by just days, sorry about that.
