The Most Beautiful Carnevale in Sicily

As we approach Ash Wednesday next week, throughout Sicily revelers are celebrating Carnevale. Acireale, where I was for last year’s party, is the place to be! Over the next few days, tens of thousands of people will process through the town’s streets wearing costumes while throwing confetti, eating Sicilian-style almond nougat and other sweets, making mischief (hence the masques), and dancing to live music. Fantastic floats will compete for the best in show.

Let’s have a virtual Carnevale! What will you be? Are you ready to party?!
