You can say a lot of things about Venetians but one thing you can’t say is that they don’t know how to have fun. And the Venetian Carnival is the perfect occasion.  The parties organized in historical palaces throughout the city during this period are really famous and the hunt for an invite has become even more difficult to get. 

Access to the exclusive parties can be a challenge, but the satisfaction once attained is guaranteed. Here are some of the most anticipated parties:
