Carnevale (also known as Carnival) is a great experience, especially in Italy. Check out our special section at http://www.travelitalytravel.com/Italian_carnivale_season.php . For many jet setters THE CARNIVALE is held in Venice on February 12th, but related events run from February 1st through February 14th. Of course not all events are musical but many are. You won't find much free here. Even if you have no intention of going, you really should check out the following site to see some fabulous masks : http://www.venice-carnival-italy.com.
One more reason to visit Venice is the 56th International Festival of Contemporary Music that runs from October 6 to 13,2012. For more information consult http://www.labiennale.org/en/music/.
Levi Reiss has authored or co-authored ten books on computers and the Internet, but to be honest, he would rather just drink fine Italian or other wine, accompanied by the right foods. He teaches classes in computers at an Ontario French-language community college. Visit his website www.travelitalytravel.com devoted to Italian travel with an accent on fine Italian wine and food. Visit his central wine website www.theworldwidewine.com with weekly reviews of $10 wine and columns devoted to various aspects of wine including wine and food, humor, trivia, organic and kosher wine and lots more.
