Come to the Venice Carnival and capture the color and pageantry in this superb five-day, six-night Photo Tour! The Carnival, in beautiful and romantic Venice, is one of the most colorful, historical, and visually exciting festivals in the world, with its origins dating back to the twelfth century. It is typified by the elaborate masks and costumes worn by the thousands of participants who attend this annual event in the days leading up to Shrove Tuesday.

In February 2014, Bobbi Lane and David Nightingale, assisted by Venice-based photographer Fabio Thian, will be leading a small group of students on a dynamic photo tour of this fabulous carnival: providing an incredible opportunity to photograph this unique event with two respected and dedicated photography educators who will provide you with a wealth of individual instruction and attention.
