The problem of going to Venice in Carnival time is obvious... It is a city that is well-known by the Carnival too and that means that everyone wants to go to visit the city then.
To arrive to Venice on time, we got up at 2am and took some trains (Pisa - Florence, Florence - Bologna, Bologna - Venice). The last train was full of people, but we could get to Venice without problems.
When we arrived, there were a lot of people who were there some hours before and Venice was beginning to be full. As we are geologists, we thought about the possibility of Venice sinking in the middle of the lagoon due to the weight...
The day was a bit stressful, but we could relax during the evening dancing in a "Ragazzi del Beat" concert with the "Gelatto al ciocolatto" song and others.
After a long day, we got on the train at midnight... it would be a long night too.
If you don't like to be part of large crows, don't participate in this event (it's just an advice). If you want to know Venice, maybe it's better to choose any other time, because otherwise you won't be able to see anything else but people.
