Simply Magical …


with Sentieri Italiani of Chicago

Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime adventure in the city of masks and mystery.
You’ll explore the history, culture and traditions of the Venice Carnival,
one of the world’s most famous and colorful festivals.

The Carnevale di Venezia dates back to the beginning of the 10th century. At that time, people enjoyed the last days before Lent, entertaining themselves and experiencing the pleasures and joys of Venice to the max. During these days of celebration and total relaxation, Venetians had the okay to wear masks, so the nobles mingled with the working class while wearing costumes and other artifices.

Today, Carnivale attracts visitors from all over the world. It’s nearly impossible to find accommodations because everything is booked months in advance. The rates soar and people rush to book their rooms.

Sentieri Italiani has reserved the highly-rated, deluxe, four-star Hotel Saturnia & International Venezia near Piazza San Marco for what’s sure to be an unforgettable vacation in La Serenissima!
