VENICE CULTURE - VENICE ITALY CULTURE - VENICE

Venice Italy CultureVenice Culture - When you think about culture in the city of Venice, Italy look no further than at every face and at every building in the area. In every small carving on every intricately architectural building in this area Venice has culture seeping through every inch of the city. As you make your way along the Grand Canal and through the endless building that all resemble Castles and Palaces you can feel the history pouring from every brick. It is a cultural exhibit of craftsmanship at its finest.

Through each and every museum you will see some of the finest art in the world and as you make your way among the people of Venice you will see the character on their faces and in their eyes. This city has so much in the way of culture you will feel that you have become part Italian after your stay, if you aren’t already. There is so much to enjoy and see in the Venice way of life that you will wish to stay among its people, their buildings. As you take a Gondola Ride, you can feel years of history and culture drifting by; as these masters of the canal carry on the tradition of a thousand years.

Venetian glass is famous the world over and is particularly associated with the Venetian Culture. Lace too has been made here down through the ages.

The Carnival of Venice takes place in January/Febuary every year. With masked balls and canal parades this is a traditional spectacle and stunning. In the Piazzas all over Venice, on the canals, on every street, parties and gaiety explode to celebrate this festival. Everyone wears masks and traditional costumes of every type. It is an opportunity to indulge in your fantasies. Originally it took place from Christmas to Ash Wednesday and included every imaginable excess.

The traditional costume was the big black cloak, black hood and white face mask – you were totally anonymous. In the last twenty years or so the Venice Carnival has gained greatly in popularity and many tourists come to attend the balls, parades, banquets, dancing etc. The private balls are sumptious and can cost up to 500 euro a head.
