“Carnevale di Viareggio” is about to start! The Carnival’s floats parade takes place on the Viareggio seafront on every Sunday for 4 weeks in a row. The Carnival's floats parade is just the “cherry on top” of the event: everyone living in Versilia area knows that the party’s heart beats during the evening in the neighborhood’s feasts, called “Rioni”. What are the Rioni? During the Rioni feasts, people eat and dance, but mainly drink, so they are not parties organised for small kids: it’s young men and women’s favorite moment during the entire Carnival period. The Rioni are going to take place every Friday, Saturday and Sunday night in relation to the Sunday (and Mardì Gras aka Shrove Tuesday) afternoon floats parade. Here’s the schedule:
- Rione Torre del Lago,
- Rione Marco Polo,
- Rione Darsena,
- Rione Croce Verde.
