Are you ready? This February, like every year, Viareggio is ready to give you his best welcome thanks to one of the most popular carnival of the world! Viareggio Carnival.
Every year for 133 years, this has been a main draw for locals and tourists alike. It is a three week festival that is a gala time for partying n February. The streets are filled with floats during the time and parades are held about 5 times over the period. Masked people and bands play throughout. The tradition started in 1873, and was originally a tax protest by citizens, but then what really happened, but to turn it into a festival later.
