Description

If you are into history, beautiful landscapes, delicious gourmet Mediterranean dishes, and a pumped-up masked party experience, the Carnival of Sardinia is definitely your cup of tea. Situated on the lovely Italian island of Sardinia and chock full of highly energetic Italian spirit, the festival has masks, bizarre and funny disguises, dances, local traditional songs and a whole lot of fun. Starting off in the picturesque province of Nuoro, and moving gradually through most regions of Sardinia, the unique event brings out age-old beliefs and traditions illustrated throughout the festivities. The main event of the Carnival is the parade of Juvanne Martis Sero, a living story of death and mourning which takes place on Shrove Tuesday.
