3 Dec 2013

If you're planning a spring getaway, why not book flights to Tuscany to experience the wonders of the Viareggio Carnival? 

This wildly colourful event has been celebrated for more than 140 years and is an integral part of the local calendar in February and March - with residents turning out in force to celebrate. 

Parades of giant papier mache floats depicting famous faces are the signature part of the festival, which takes place on 6 to 23 February, and again on 2, 4 and 9 March, but there will be much more to enjoy besides.

This entertainment will include night parties, fireworks, theatre, gastronomy and sports, so visitors are ensured a great time in this popular seaside resort. 

With more than 1m spectators expected to attend, to avoid disappointment don't delay in booking your flights and hotels, which are likely to experience very high demand for rooms during the course of the festivities.ADNFCR-408-ID-801668042-ADNFCR
