Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 15, 2014
The 2015 edition of the Carnival of Venice will take place from January 31st to February 17th, and the theme is all about “The triumph of flavors, exquisite tastes and the pleasure of good food, wine, and conviviality,” an homage to the Expo of Milan and its theme of “Feeding the planet, energy for life” (May 1st - October 31st).
Select Italy (http://selectitaly.com), the web-based boutique travel company specialized in travel to Italy is offering a wide range of services for those traveling to Italy for the event, from accommodations to guided tours, and from transportation -- like airport shuttles, gondola rides or water taxis -- to cooking classes or wine tastings. The conjuction with the world's fair in Milan makes the 2015 edition of the Carnival one of the most anticipated events of the year in Italy.
“This event is one of the largest annual events in Italy, and with its ties to the food-themed Expo of Milan, it will be extraordinary this year,” says Martina Zuccarello, Director of Food and Wine Lifestyle Representation at Select Italy, “We suggest that attendees start planning now and that they look for exclusive, behind-the-scenes travel services, such as the Insights in the the Real Venice Tour or a cooking class, to avoid the major crowds and gain an authentic experience of Venice’s historic tradition.”
To enhance the Venetian Carnival tradition, the 2015 theme, and experience the less popular but real side of the city, Select Italy suggests three Carnival-themed services: join an exclusive mask-crafting workshop to learn from skilled artisans how to create a Venetian mask; then taste the foodie theme of 2015 by l earning how to cook a Venetian meal; and finally explore the less crowded sites with the “i nsights into the ‘real’ Venice” small group tour.

Saturday January 31: Venetian Festival in the Cannaregio district
Saturday February 7: Opening of Gran Teatro of Piazza San Marco and Festa delle Marie
Sunday February 8: Flight of the Angel in Piazza San Marco
