    Fondest memory: The ENTIRE world knows that Venice is very famous for (among other things) its carnival which takes place in February every year. And both YOU and I have seen images of these mysterious Venetian masks and resplendent costumes with goldolas floating in the background. Ah, and knowing you -- you probably never even bother to consider coming to the Carnivale di Venezia because you think it's pointless to jostle with the overflowing crowd. Yes?? Neither would you wish to pay 3 times more for your hotel accommodation. Am I right to guess that?? WRONG!!! Your presence wouldn't worsen the chaotic crowd but more importantly, you will be enriched by this new experience!!!!!!!!

    Favorite thing: Be there during Carnival and be sure to stay out by the Grand Canal at sunrise and sunset

    Fondest memory: Travelling down the Grand Canal at sunset and sunrise - Side trips to Borano. Walking around and eating breakfast, drinking lattes and watching people crossing bridges and scurrying about.

    Favorite thing: On business at Peschiera on Lake Guarda for a couple of days.
    On arrival at Verona airport was taken direct to Venice.
    ONly spent a about four hours there It's even better than I thought it could be.
    Will have to go back and see it properlay.

    Fondest memory: Being at Carnival time, the streets filled with people in consutme and masks, sitting around in best cafes and orchestra playing Vivaldi in St. Marks square. Unforgetable. And, being in March - no crowds.
