    Ahh Venice. I broke a rib once, 5 minutes after entering a room. Venice is a must and Carnival is a great opportunity to dance and be crazy.

    Going to Venice would be absolutely incredible on it's own. My friends son went there and brought back a bunch of video of the experience. It was amazing. But then to do Carnivale on top of that?!?!? I can only imagine.
