Venice Carnevale

Carnival Costumes by Rosemary Wilmot

“I was lucky to join the procession for the Silent Gondola Parade for the end of Carnevale – absolutely fantastic – in an old Batella for eight people. All the palazzi were candlelit, and even the waterbus stops were illuminated with candles. We had two lady rowers, and had mulled wine, Prosecco, carnival cakes and biscuits. Hundreds of people were on the bridges and on the sides of the canals watching
us – what a privilege!”
