Venetian costumes

Locals like to show off in their carefully made, rich costumes. They are not the only ones. In fact when in Venice you can rent a costume yourself!
They say Venice looks even better from inside of a costume.

There are many shops and ateliers where you can get your dream costume.
You can take a look at one of them on this link.

Some of the costumes are really nice replicas of old clothes. There are replicas available even from 1600.

It is not cheap, but I guess it's one of those things one would do once in a lifetime, so I guess price should not be such an issue.

I didn't buy nor rent a costume, but as you can see, I took some nice photos of the ones in action this year.

Thanks for sharing your post! I went several times to Venice for the Carnival... customs are beautiful! I could suggest to go there the second Carnival's Sunday when a lady dressed with typical customs is flying down from the tower in San Marco's square!
