Parties, masks and floats characterise the most unrestrained period of the year before the Lent of the Christian calendar. Usually the Carnival celebrations start between the Epiphany and the Candlemas. In many cities the season starts on the 17th of January with Saint Antony Abbot’s celebration.

Some cities have the centuries-old tradition of celebrations, expressed in very particular ways. Let’s discover them comfortably in a luxury car with driver by Vip Limousine Milan!

The Ambrosian Carnival

Experience the Carnival 2019 in a luxury car with driver!The tradition of the Ambrosian Carnival dates back to the age of Saint Ambrose and is celebrated from the Shrove Tuesday until the next Saturday. The Carnival in Milan starts when in other cities the celebrations are coming to the end: tradition has it that Saint Ambrose, Milan’s patron, coming back late in his native land, asked to start the celebrations after his return, that was on the Shrove Tuesday.

The Ambrosian Carnival transforms completely Milan’s appearance: parades of floats, shows in Piazza Duomo, traditional masks and costumes, this year everything is invention-themed in honour of the 500th anniversary of the death of Leonardo da Vinci.

During your Tour of Milan with driver you could come across the Meneghin walking undisturbed next to the Cecca. Milanese mask par excellence, it’s a servant making kindly fun of rich people’s faults and is wearing a three-cornered hat, a brown jacket, a flower waistcoat, short green or brown trousers and white and red striped knee-length socks.

The Carnival of Venice

Experience the Carnival 2019 in a luxury car with driver!With our Long-range transfer service, you could chose to let yourself accompany, on board of one of our cars with driver, also out of Milan: you can’t miss the spectacular and elegant Carnival of Venice!

This celebration has its roots in the age of the “Most Serene Republic of Venice” and enchants since then with its finely crafted artistic masks inspired by the Venetian refinement, created to hide the identity and therefore the class of those who freely abandone themselves to the celebrations. The historical Venetian masks cover all the face and are accompanied by enormous cloaks or 19th century dresses.

The Carnival of Venice starts every year with the historic Venetian Party on the water, where the Rio di Cannoregio comes alive with the mask parades on gondolas.

The Festa delle Marie, the election of the most beautiful mask and the Mestre Carnival Street show precede one of the most attended moments: the flight of the angel where the Maria, winner of the previous Carnival flies on the crowd of Piazza San Marco.

The Carnival of Viareggio

Experience the Carnival 2019 in a luxury car with driver!Indisputable protagonists of the unrestrained Carnival of Viareggio are, in line with tradition, the gigantic papier-mâché floats. During the long Carnival month, city’s districts transform their own streets and squares in a stage for shows with live music, balls, creative costumes and outdoor kitchens where you can taste typical local dishes.

The allegoric float parade of Viareggio is the biggest of Italy. The "papier-mâché” was invented exactly in Viareggio and the tradition relives every year thanks to the creations of the papier-mâché masters that work all the year without interruption to create coloured allegoric floats.

The historic Carnival of Ivrea

Experience the Carnival 2019 in a luxury car with driver!

Let yourself be carried on board of a Vip Limousine Milano luxury car with driver to Ivrea, which Carnival is known mostly for its characteristic battle with oranges.

The spirit of the Historic Carnival of Ivrea lives in the reconstruction of an episode of the liberation from the tyranny dated back to the Middle ages: a miller’s daughter refused to submit to the baron and this gave birth to a popular uprising that turn out the baron.

Every year, therefore, with parades, historical re-visitations, street parties and mostly with the oranges battle, the community of Ivrea celebrates its own capacity for self-determination.

The heroine of the feast is the Miller, beside the General, which has the task to guarantee the proper running of the event.

The European Carnival of Cento
