This weekend it's off to Venice for the most famous costume carnival party. I would like to experience this carnival party live and I will tell you about this great event in my blog the following week.
The good thing, you too can participate in this carnival, the carnival starts on February 16th until March 5th 2019.
Here are some tips for you:
- If you want to stay in Venice, this will be very difficult! Unless you book early in advance. I recommend staying outside of Venice Mestre, Treviso, Lido di Jesolo, Caorle, Lignano. Written in red are the links to the hotels.
- I always book with booking.com. Advantage you can cancel at any time. Just below you see the booking.com map. Just make the map smaller then you can see Mestre and the places mentioned above with the prices for your overnight stay.
- Here I recommend the train clearly, you arrive directly in the city of Venice. Book with Austrian ÖBB Train.
- If you arrive by car I recommend that you leave your car in Mestre, the suburb of Venice and take the train to Venice. This not takes longer than 15 minutes. Alternative if you have a few euros too much is the car park "Autorimessa Comunale" that is a few meters away from Piazza Roma. Interested is the evening tariff from 17:00 to 24:00, costs only € 15,00. The driveway of the 7-story parking garage is an adventure. But at the top you have a magnificent view of Venice. Insider tip beware! There is a free car park, so you just have to arrive early in Venice. How do you get there: after the last bridge you drive right down to the cruise terminal once around the roundabout and then right into it. As already said, you need to be there early in the morning.
If you want to do a great tour with other people I have some suggestions here.
