The Carnival of Venice 2023


From February 4th to the 21st , the Carnival of Venice will bring art and creativity to the squares, streets and countryside of the whole Venetian area with the best protagonists of the international scene. An edition in the name of free expression, creative energy and fantasy worlds that aims to make you dream again.

A rich program is planned, spread throughout the Venetian territory, from the islands to the mainland. To note in your agenda: shows, guided tours, tastings, concerts, clowning, circus-theater, puppets, acrobatic performances and musical performances. The 2023 edition of the Carnival will also see the great return of the masked parade floats.

It begins on Saturday February 4th with the spectacular Opening Parade, a large floating performance that will move along the Grand Canal. On Sunday February 5th, the traditional procession of boats of the  “Voga alla Veneta” will be held.

And if all this wasn’t enough to create unforgettable emotive experiences, the extraordinary Original Signs show returns to the Arsenale, performing live music, dance and special effects that will make you feel like you're in a dream.
