Each year in February Venice becomes the most romantic place on earth as hundreds of incredibly skilled artists flood the city to show their colorful masks and the wonderful, sophisticated costumes. However, the colorful scene of carnival goers won’t be the only thing you see. You will be in Venice, so that means canals, gondolas, and beautiful architecture. We may also take a boat trip to the magical island of Burano to photograph the colorful boats and houses that line the Canal. The local flavor is there waiting for you to capture it in amazing images.
The magnificent sunrises and sunsets, along with the incredible costumes and masks, are unique experiences. If you love photography, whether you’re a professional, a beginner, or an enthusiast, visiting carnival is a magical experience. We will take in the beautiful architecture of Venice as well as the festive atmosphere during Carnival. When we combine the extraordinary cuisine of Venice you are sure to have an amazing experience!
After spending several days photographing the beauty and pageantry that Carnival in Venice has to offer the group will travel to Florence and Rome to round out our uniquely diverse itinerary.
We are not providing a detailed, day-by-day itinerary, because we want to be flexible and prepared to adapt our schedule to the timing of specific events, the availability of models, and the many varieties of weather that we may experience.
