Carnival Time
Carnevale (Mardi Gras and the lead-up) is a big deal in Italy, and the biggest Tuscan celebrations are held in the seaside town of Viareggio (west of Florence). On the Sundays either side of Mardi Gras and on that Tuesday itself, a long procession of huge satirical floats (mainly making fun of politicians and celebrities) parades down the main drag cheered on by boisterous crowds and lots of kids in fancy dress. It’s fun and very, very Italian.
