Annecy Venetian Carnival
Annecy's nickname is the "the Little Venice of the Alps" because of the historical center and canals. So ARIA (Association Rencontre Italie Annecy) is organizing every year a beautiful Carnival end of February or beginning of March (in 2016 it will be on February 20th and 21st from 10 to 18h).
About 350 masks will parade in silence in the Old Town or Pâquier and will do a catwalk in the Jardin de l'Europe.
Be attentive, as sometimes, they are hiding in some small narrow streets!
It is beautiful and there is like an Italian atmosphere in Annecy!
Do not forget your cameras and enjoy!
