What's on in Florence this Jan - March!

 Although not as famous as Venice, Viareggio can celebrate "Carnivale" as big as anyone. Kicking off late January and running until mid February the seaside town literally explodes into a sea of costumes, floats and colours as people come from all over Italy to rub shoulders with the locals. Situated about an hour away from Florence, the short trip will definitely be worth the effort. Click here for a full guide.

What's on in Rome this Jan - March!

 Rome is one of those cities, where although there is always somehing going on, you have to look pretty hard to find it in the early part of the year.

What's on in Venice this Jan - March! (Carnivale)

Needless  to say that the Carnivale in Venice is one of the biggest events on the Italian calendar. The costumes and colours throughout the event are not done in halves as people of all ages don themselves in anything from pirates to a more traditional medieval masked Venetian ensemble. This year the event kicks off on the 26th of January and runs until the 12th of February - you won't be disappointed.

Boredom is something you never have to worry about when visiting the German capital - there's always something to do. Here's a taste for early 2013.
