European Carnivals & Festivals

Carnival season heralds the end of winter and is celebrated by processions of decorated floats and parades. Italy's beloved carnivals are the Venice Carnival, dating back to 1296, and the Viareggio Carnival which is an important carnival internationally. The Verona Opera Festival is well worth a visit too.

In France, Nice carnival offers a programme of unforgettable entertainment. You'll also find the Menton Lemon Festival which has taken place since the end of the 19th century and is filled with large statues made from citrus fruit. In Switzerland, the Lucerne Carnival is a glittering costume party with parades and musicians playing. Or head to Germany and enjoy the Rhine in Flames - a fireworks spectacular on the banks of the River Rhine.
