Carnevale di Venezia 2020

2020

I traveled to Venice, Italy for Carnival in 2020. I'd been to Venice before but only as a tourist. This was my first Carnival. I spent an extended amount of time exploring the fantastic maze that makes up this unique city. It was everything I expected. Colorful, vibrant.
