What  great shots one of our returning clients has just sent us of the Mascheranda Ball at the Venice Carnival. Below is their account of their time at the Venice Carnival.

"The first thing to say is that we both had a fabulous time – every bit as good as you said it would be Kevin. As a bonus we were blessed with sunny weather every day we were away.

Venice at carnival time was colourful, crowded, vibrant, expensive but not to be missed. Travelling from the airport to the hotel by water taxi was a spectacular introduction and much appreciated. I think for me the most wonderful thing about Venice is the views, familiar from ancient paintings and seemingly unchanged. The murky green water so perfectly contrasts with the orange and Terracotta buildings with their green shutters framing the gondolas and working boats seemingly frozen in time. The costumes we chose for the Ball fitted perfectly . We ate well and the wine was good."
