The final weekend of Venice Carnival is said to be the best time to attend. So, from Fat Thursday Feb 8 – the Thursday before Ash Wednesday Feb 14 (Giovedì Grasso) until Shrove Tuesday Feb 13 (Martedì Grasso), is when the best events occur. It is also the busiest time to be in Venice for Carnival.
Venice Carnival is one of the oldest carnivals in the world, in fact the first documented mention was back in 1094. Carnival was a Catholic tradition, a period of feasting, excess and extravagant celebration before the start of Lent, which is 40 days of fasting and sacrifice in the lead up to Easter.
