Practical advice

No special preparations need to be made for Carnival, except to book a room or apartment well in advance (see our Venice Hotel Guide) and bring enough money for high-season prices and a costume or mask. It's unwise to stay outside the city and commute to the festivities, since traffic is heavy and the police have been known to block the causeway from the mainland as a deterrent to overcrowding.
